A little about the model:

The Jaguar XK120 was manufactured by Jaguar between 1948 and 1954 and was Jaguar's first post-war sports car, succeeding the SS 100 which was discontinued in 1940.

Jaguar's impressive XK120 was an enormously important car for both the brand and postwar Britain. Following its introduction, the XK120 was the fastest car in the world and arguably the most beautiful. It was capable of reaching a cruising speed of 120 miles per hour (193.12km / h). As a result, he put Jaguar firmly back on the map. After the model's debut at the 1948 Earl's Court Motor Show, a journalist commented, "All perceived notions of what a mass-produced sports car was disappeared overnight."

The Fixed Head Coupe went into production in 1951 as the second of three XK120 models, and it boasted perhaps the highest level of practicality of the three styles. The addition of a hardtop not only protected its occupants from the weather, but also added even more voluptuous curves to the already well-formed body.

This particular unit is in great condition, surely one of the best units for sale right now.
