    DVV200 is quite possibly one of the most desirable XK120’s available in terms of competition history and ownership. Racing legend Jack Sears would be the first owner of DVV200 and would campaign the car extensively from 1954 from Goodwood to Snetterton, proving to be a top running car in nearly every event. The car would then move to Peter and Michael Sargent before being purchased by the current owner in 2003. DVV200 would be kept in dry storage virtually unmolested and its history preserved. It wasn’t until 2018 when the current owner desired to see DVV on the track once again. The car would be brought to CKL Developments to be race prepared for the 2018 Goodwood Revival Fordwater Trophy and demonstrated in action by our own Chris Keith-Lucas.

    Lot 247

    The ex-Jack Sears

    1954 Jaguar XK120 Coupé

    Registration no. DVV 200

    Chassis no. S669125

    *Driven by Jack Sears throughout the 1954 season

    *One of only 194 right-hand drive XK120 fixed-head coupés built

    *Present ownership since 2003

    *£30,000 spent on mechanical recommissioning the engine in the last 12 months

    *Fordwater Trophy participant

    One of only 194 right-hand drive XK120 fixed-head coupés built, this example was bought new by famous racing driver the late Jack Sears, who would go on to win the inaugural British Saloon Car Championship in 1958 and regain the title in 1963, in addition to drives for the BMC Works, Tommy Sopwith's Equipe Endeavour, Willment and Maranello Concessionaires teams, the latter who he drove for at Le Mans. Driven by him in the RAC Rally and at Goodwood, Snetterton, and various hill climb venues, the XK comes with a detailed list of Jack's results for 1954. 'DVV 200' is mentioned and pictured in Sears' biography, Gentleman Jack, and has appeared in numerous other publications devoted to the marque, including The Jaguar XKs by Paul Skilleter and Original Jaguar XK by Philip Porter.

    In the 1970s, 'DVV 200' was bought another notable racing driver and Le Mans competitor, by Peter Sargent and his brother Michael. Michael Sargent did not race the XK but owned it for some 20-plus years. Subsequently 'DVV 200' had one owner – Brian Perring, who acquired the car in 2000 – before passing to the current vendor in 2003, so has been sold only twice in the last 40-plus years.

    While in the vendor's care, the XK has benefited from over £30,000 spent on the mechanical recommissioning engine over the last 12 months with renowned marque specialists CKL Developments Ltd. Noteworthy features include 2" sand-cast SU carburettors, D-Type cams, and 9.1 compression ratio a high-torque starter motor. The original Moss gearbox and drum brakes are retained, as is the original 'sprint' rear axle (a standard (rebuilt) rear axle is also included in the sale). Accompanying documentation includes an old-style logbook, sundry invoices dating back to the 1970's, a Heritage Certificate, MoT history, a V5C Registration Certificate, current FIA papers, and numerous period photographs, some signed by Jack Sears.

    'DVV 200' Raced in the Fordwater Trophy event at the Goodwood Revival in 2018 and is surely going to be a welcome invitee in the future.

    £30,000 spent on the engine in the last twelve months? What's it got under the bonnet - a Ferrari V-12 ? Nuts.

    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?
