History of the Jaguar XK120
The Jaguar XK120 was unveiled in 1948 at the London Motor Show. It was initially intended as a testbed for a new engine that Jaguar chairman and design czar Sir William Lyons had planned. Its stylish lines and performance XK engine quickly gained the interest of sporting minded enthusiasts across the globe. The XK’s “120” designation stood for its claimed top speed of 120 mph, an assertion that proved true, making it the world’s fastest production car at the time. Public reaction to its flowing curves and styling proportions was so positive that the car was quickly put into production in 1949. From 1949 to 1954, only 2,680 fixed head coupes were produced, most equipped with a left-hand drive for the American market.
