Offered here is a tastefully prepared Jaguar XK120 sports racer, paying homage to the few competition-prepared XK120s from the period, such as the three run by the famous Le Mans winning race team, Ecurie Ecosse. Completed during July of 1952 as a left-hand drive XK120 Roadster at the Jaguar Works, the new Jaguar was destined for the booming US sports car market. Reportedly a sound and solid example at the time, the XK120 was acquired for restoration in 2004 by the previous and possibly just second owner, a Los Angeles based sports car enthusiast, with a fantastic collection of sports and competition cars. A regular on the Italian Mile Miglia, he wanted to build a tastefully prepared Jaguar sports competition car, paying homage to the wonderful XK120Cs which ran in period.

The comprehensive work was carried out by the Jaguar specialists at Lone Star Vintage Restoration of Houston, Texas, at a cost of more than $150,000 at the time. The work included fitting the potent 3.8-Liter competition Jaguar XK engine as seen in the car today, featuring high-lift cams, enlarged valves and 9:1 compression, while fed through triple Weber carburetors and sparked by dual-point ignition. A dyno test done at the time measured an impressive 320-plus bhp at 5,200 rpm. The original matching-numbers 3.4-Liter engine was retained, safely crated, and is offered with the car today. A 5-speed Borg Warner gearbox was fitted, along with side exhaust, period correct Le Mans style louvres on the bonnet and front fenders along with Le Mans style quick-filler fuel cap and a leather bonnet strap. Borrani wire wheels was fitted, while the stock bumpers were removed, and disc brakes along with competition-grade suspension fitted, giving the car excellent road holding and braking capabilities.

Inside the cockpit, custom alloy leather-upholstered bucket seats were fitted with competition-style seatbelts, along with a sleek racing windscreen and a classic wood-rimmed steering wheel. After completion, the Jaguar was campaigned on various rallies and driving events including the Colorado Grand, while also placing well in Concours d'Elegance shows. The sporting Jaguar was acquired by the consignor 15 years ago and has since been retained in his impressive collection of European sports cars. This powerful, tastefully done XK120 offers a great opportunity to acquire an engaging driver's car that is also beautiful and eligible for various driving events.
