Sold by Artcurial Motorcars for 119.136 euros (03/02/2012, Rétromobile, Paris)

The Jaguar XK120 roadster on offer comes from an important French collection and is presented in exceptional condition. It has, in fact, shared a garage with a Bentley Continental R Fastback aluminium, Ferrari 250 GT Lusso, F40, F50, Bentley Speed Six, Delage D8 S cabriolet, Ferrari 250MM... a huge barn that has been completely modernised and is heated all year round to provide the perfect environment for preserving old cars. The owner has totally transformed the old barn attached to his property in Solognote to hold around forty cars. He thought of every little detail needed to care for his motor cars : security, year round heating and ventilation. Today, approaching 80 years old, the owner has decided to end the automobile chapter of his life and this sublime Roadster is the penultimate car in his collection. It has benefitted from a total restoration, in keeping with its original specification. Unfortunately the comprehensive dossier on the car was mislaid by the person in charge of the collection and there are no longer any photographs or invoices. The condition of the car speaks for itself, however, and is splendid in every detail. The engine starts immediately and emits an enchanting sound. To make it more user-friendly, certain mechanical improvements were made, including an unleaded cylinder head conversion, an electric fan so that there is no need to fear the inevitable traffic-jam, and a stainless steel exhaust which not only hinders corrosion, but also magnifies the wonderful sound of the six-cylinder 3.4-litre engine. The car was such a pleasure to drive when we took it out that we didn't want to return it to the owner.Powerful and flexible, this car permits a long journey without a second thought, and is more than capable of dealing with modern traffic. The green leather interior, also totally refurbished is superb and the car has two aero-screens adding to its sporty appearance. The only problem with the standard XK120 was the driving position; it has become a strong point in this car because the seats have been replaced with period bucket seats allowing anyone to drive it in the greatest comfort, without having the steering wheel waist-high! What more can be said, other than if you allow yourself to get this car, you won't ever be able to leave it!

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
