Recently we came across this beautiful Jaguar XK120 1953 at The Gallery in
Brummen, The Netherlands. This classic car dealer is one of the largest in
the world. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments
on our videos. Feel free to leave one!
The XK120 was launched in open two-seater or (US) roadster form at the 1948
London Motor Show as a testbed and show car for the new Jaguar XK engine.
The display car was the first prototype, chassis number 670001. It looked
almost identical to the production cars except that the straight outer
pillars of its windscreen would be curved on the production version. The
roadster caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss
William Lyons to put it into production.
Beginning in 1948, the first 242 cars wore wood-framed open 2-seater bodies
with aluminium panels. Production switched to the 1cwt or 112 lb (51 kg)
heavier all-steel in early 1950. The "120" in the name referred to the
aluminium car's 120 mph (193 km/h) top speed (faster with the windscreen removed), which
made it the world's fastest production car at the time of its launch. In
1949 the first production roadster, chassis number 670003, was delivered to
The ex-Clark Gable XK120 at the 2012 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance
The XK120 was ultimately available in two open versions, first as an open
2-seater described in the US market as the roadster (and designated OTS,
for open two-seater, in America), then also as a drophead coupé (DHC) from
1953; and also as a closed, or fixed head coupé (FHC) from 1951.
A smaller-engined version 2-litres, 4 cylinders, intended for the UK market
was cancelled prior to production.
On May 30 1949, on the empty Ostend-Jabbeke motorway in Belgium, a
prototype XK120 timed by the officials of the Royal Automobile Club of
Belgium achieved an average of runs in opposing directions of 132.6 mph
with the windscreen replaced by just one small aeroscreen and a catalogued
alternative top gear ratio,[note 1] and 135 mph with a passenger-side
tonneau cover in place. In 1950 and 1951, at a banked oval track in
France, XK120 roadsters averaged over 100 mph for 24 hours and over 130 mph
for an hour, and in 1952 a fixed-head coupé took numerous world records
for speed and distance when it averaged 100 mph for a week.
Roadsters were also successful in racing and rallying.

Позиционирование автомобиля на
российском рынке - главный вопрос,
который Сергей Стиллавин и Рустам
Вахидов задали себе во время "Большого
тест-драйва" машины Jaguar XF. Кто купит этот
автомобиль за почти 3 миллиона рублей,
учитывая неплохой экстрерьер, спорные
моменты в интерьере и наличие достойных
конкурентов в этом ценовом сегменте?
