1953 XK120 Lightweight Aluminium LT2 race car.
Registration Number: URV565
The Jaguar XK 120 LT2 , also known as the Silverstone, was the factory works lightweight version of the XK 120 , originally constructed with a one piece magnesium body. It is believed that just three cars were built and planned for use in the 1951 Le Mans race should the Works C types fail to be ready. As it happens the C types were ready and went on to win the race.
Approximately 240 lightweight XK 120's were built with aluminium bodies intended for competition use!
This car offered for sale is the subject of an exhaustive and painstaking restoration to full Jaguar XK 120 lightweight specification and is completely faithful to the three lightweight aluminium bodied cars that were built by the works engineers for private teams? entry in Le Mans, 1951.
As the full restoration was completed the car was fitted with period correct Brooklands aero screens and quick fuel filler to match the works Le Mans team cars.
This car is very very fast due to its combination of light weight aluminium body & tuned engine. It sits on chrome wire wheels with knock off spinners. Black leather bucket seats take care of the creature conforts whilst a Moto Lita Steering wheel handles directional changes. Not for the faint of heart this is a car very much at home on the track or competing in historic events.
The car comes with a thick history folder containing the usual prethora of bills from assorted marqe specialists & attesting to the serious money spent to create this road rocket. It has been owned by an octogenarian man for the last 5 years to whom we sold it previously. During his tenure it has resided in his collection seeing occasional use of a gentle nature.
