Owned for 40 years, this XK120 has had a hugely competitive career having been a class winner in the 1989 Panamericana road race through Mexico. Has numerous other wins to its credit in the USA & across Europe & the UK. An exciting project for someone with vision. Complete with parts & double deck trailer.

I paid over £100000. 00 in 1988 & I am asking £48, 500. 00 today in its current condition, Would consider constructive offers or part exchange. Maturing years forces sale. Please call or email for further details.

A brief description & history of the racer as follows:

This car is a left hand drive & was developed extensively by Christopher Lawrence of Morgan & Le mans winning fame. He was a highly competent engineer & even more competent racing driver. This car was developed by a wealthy American enthusiast as a no expense spared project, he simply wanted to see Lawrence sweep the board at all the west coast Californian race circuits, which it did. I purchased the Jaguar from Lord Anthony Rufus Isaacs in the late 80's & pretty well cleaned up at all the race circuits in California. I. E: Willow Springs, Lagoona Seca, Palm Springs to name but a few.
I competed in the 1989 Pan Americana road race which went from Guatemala to Texas, managing to achieve a class win in the event. I participated in 2 subsequent Pan Americana's & bought the Jaguar back to the UK in the early 90's , where I competed in various Jaguar car club events & rallies in Wales. I also participated in the Tour de France road race & was part of the Intermarc Race Team, which was a 10 race event taking in circuits all over the country, which Jaguar won. I also had a track record at Cadwell Park, which I was awarded a trophy for.
The Jaguar was laid up in the early 90's & has not seen the light of day for 30 years. The Jaguar comes with a double deck trailer & I am open to constructive offers as I am no longer interested in competitive driving due to age & ill health. It does not have the original engine or gearbox, this car was a highly modified race car & the engine was so highly tuned it was impractical. The engine is a 3. 8 but needs building to whatever spec you require.
If I were to keep the XK I would fit it with a fast road/ race 3. 8 engine. It has an e-type 4 speed gearbox which goes with it but again I would go for a Gertrac 5 speed gearbox. Ref the back axle, I would fit it with a 150 or MK 2 axle with a limited slip dif. It has a xk140 rack & pinion steering assembly & full double ventilated disc brake system, apart from the fuel cell & roll bar, basically this is an out & out road/ race car which is an all round, fun voltage competitive XK.
