Description

The Jaguar XK 120 OTS (Open Two Seater) offered here is a true Mille Miglia veteran. The car underwent a gentle restoration without welding between 2012 and 2014, carried out in Southern Germany. In the process, the original 3.4 liter engine (matching numbers) was removed and put into storage. In came a 4.2 liter engine from the XJ6 with 186 hp, which provides in the newly rebuilt state for a state of the art acceleration. A fresh paint job in British Racing Green completed the appearance. After the restoration, an expert's report was drawn up which gave the vehicle a condition rating of 1-. A FIVA Identity Card was also issued the following year.

Thereupon, between 2015 and 2018, it was used every year at the historic event between Brescia and Rome. Thanks to its reliable engineering, comparatively sporty chassis for the time, and direct steering, it finished confidently every time, delighting on every kilometer of the demanding course.

The Jaguar was originally delivered to the USA in 1950, so it is an original left-hand drive car. Between 1970 and 2010 it was always with the same owner and was then imported to Germany via the Netherlands. Besides the original engine, the original seats are still present, but for practical reasons they had to give way to the now installed sport seats. The parts are of course included in the purchase price.

The Jaguar is an authentic example of the fastest production car in the world at that time and still knows how to convince through the sensible upgrades. The perfect companion for the upcoming Mille Miglia, but also for trips lasting several days in nice weather.
