The Jaguar XK 120 is the perfect example of what a prototype should do.

Jaguar launched the 120 in 1948 at the London Motor Show as a way to test out a new engine and gauge interest in a new body design. It intended the car to facilitate the evolution of the brand.

Mr. William Lyons, the brand’s founder, didn’t expect to sell many of his novel XKs, they were mainly being used to test engine components and body composition for that potential future sedan—so he made them with readily available, lightweight aluminum. (The conventional method for making car bodies back then used steel, which was scarce after World War II)
Demand for the XK 120 exploded, especially in the United States, where drivers had never seen a postwar sports car.

The XK 120 was considered to be a fabulous value for the money. It felt much more modern than anything else people had driven, especially for the American driver.

Early models came with a straight-six, 160-bhp “XK” engine and a feline body molded out of the aluminum and trimmed in ash wood. It was Jaguar’s first sports car in nearly a decade, so there was a lot of pressure to hit on something that would stick.

Preliminary results were exceptional: The car set speed records, and Jaguar ended up using that engine until the 1980s.

Jaguar’s 3.4-litre straight-six is perhaps one of the greatest engine designs of all time.

This engine is absolutely fabulous and due to the perfect power to weight ratio the car has an amazing performance.

The XK 120 is a car which can be driven on a racetrack but it is also a fantastic car to use for holiday trips.
The big engine is great to drive on the motorway because it does not produces very high revs at higher speed and is therefore very comfortable, but because of the torque an XK is also a superb car to race around in the mountains.
With the beautiful engine/exhaust sound it will 100% give a smile on everybody’s face.

 

ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE

According to its Heritage Certificate, this remarkable Jaguar XK120 OTS SE was built in left-hand drive form, finished in Lavender Grey with a Red interior and rolled off the production line on the 12th of August 1954. Being one of the last XK 120’s produced.

It was subsequently despatched from Browns Lane on the 17th of August to arrive at the distributors in Hoffman Motor Car Co., New York in September.

It was destined for its new owner and after a few months, at the 17th of December 1955, with 4,000 Miles on the clock it was purchased in Indianapolis by Mr. Chris W.M. Manolis from a dealership.

In 1969 the owner painted the car in Dove Grey.

In 2011 the 92 years old owner sold the car to Mr. Gary Ray Seraphinoff from Michigan.
In April 2016 the Jaguar has been found and purchased by a Dutch gentleman, a very good friend of us with an extremely impressive collection, who is still currently the owner of this impressive Jaguar.

The Jaguar is highly original and has never been taken apart or restored. It has a Matching Numbers engine, gearbox, body and chassis.

Under the bonnet one can find the beautiful original and unrestored 3.4-liter XK engine which is also a desirable ‘Special Equipment’ model with C-Type–style cylinder head. In 2018 the current owner carried out the rebuilt of the engine as well as a fully restoration of the underneath of the Jaguar. He also installed new wiring.

 

CONDITION EXTERIOR

This is such a car which is impossible to find, with an original touch which is hard to find nowadays. Most cars are fully restored but this car is as it was newly delivered and carefully used.

The paint is old but very beautiful even as the chrome.

Doorfittings are very nice as well.

Some people love brand new restored cars, the people who love original cars prefer this car.

 

DRIVING EXPERIENCE

The sound of the car is wonderful. It has a beautiful noise from the exhaust. Sporty but still chique.

This car offers a great opportunity to acquire an extremely rare still original and unrestored quintessential British fifties classic that is also beautiful and eligible for various driving events including the Mille Miglia.
