The Earl’s Court Motor Show in 1948 debuted the XK120 and created a sensation! Originally the car was conceived as a low volume care but was destined to become one of the most celebrated sports cars of all times, thus 12,000 were produced from 1948-54.
Sir Williams Lyons designed the elegant curves and called it the XK Model suggesting a 120 mph top speed. Powered by a 3.4 Liter 6-cylinder engine with 160 HP, the XK was the fastest production car in the world.
Being the recipient of an older restoration, this drophead coupe is nicely presented in triple black with a refurbished leather and wood interior with a Wilton wood headliner. Smiths MA instrumentation is on the headliner. The car rides on steel wheels that have whitewall tires and black center caps, fender skirts and dual-fender mounted mirrors. The car has a spare and top boot cover. A beautiful piece of history!
