Introduced back to the market, this highly preserved XK120 example has lived a fascinating life with ties to the Ecurie Ecosse racing team, ownership by renowned Jaguar enthusiasts Robert Kerr and most recently, a 2018 participant in the Pebble Beach Concours dElegance, where the car was entered into the Postwar Preservation category.

Before taking to the green this perfectly preserved example took part in the Tour d'Elegance, a famed 17-mile drive of twisting coastal roads to the Carmel-by-the-Sea town, the official first day of the Concours, filling 16 blocks of the downtown, showcasing well over 175 collector cars.

With the picturesque Californian coastline as a backdrop the XK120 performed without fault, impressing the prestigious judges and stood as a true example of 1950's British Jaguar engineering, and while the XK120 did not win its class, the car still returns home a champion.

Starting on the button and waking up the iconic XK engine, you'll be serenaded by the smooth 3.4ltr engine playing a classic soundtrack through its period correct exhaust system. Whether you are navigating the twisting Kentish lanes or cruising the California coastline, this matching numbers XK120 performs seamlessly through a precise original 4-speed Moss gearbox.
