After Jaguar displayed a prototype of the XK120 at the 1948 London Motor Show to the awestruck public and motoring press the decision was made to put it into production.
These beautiful cars were fitted with the new XK range of engines that would power it to 120mph making them the worlds fastest production car at the time. The combination of looks and performance ensured success and now continue to be one of the most desirable classic cars of all time.

This immaculate example was delivered to Henly's of London in November 1953 with an original purchase price at the time of £1,275.
Eventually getting shipped to the USA before being imported to Australia in 1989. Eventually resurfacing in a barn in 1996 in need of a total restoration being completed in 2008.

Restored by a Jaguar specialist the car went on to be their most successful and awarded concourse vehicle with a list of Concourse awards and being awarded Australian Classic Car of the Year Awarded in 2010.

Finished flawlessly in its correct Lavender grey and contrasting suede green interior. The attention to detail is evident throughout the car the interior is perfectly trimmed and presents as new.

Mechanically perfect with a period correct engine highly detailed and factory correct its easy to see why this car received 1st position in all events it entered.

A superb example of one of the most collected classics and a rare opportunity to get one in a condition like this. Always increasing the XK120 makes for a great collectable and an exhilarating drive.
