In 1952, a Jaguar XK120 was driven continuously for seven days and nights around a track located in Montlhery, France. Completing more than 16,000 miles in one week, the XK120 once again proved not only its endurance capabilities, but also its appeal to both everyday drivers and racecar enthusiasts. Production of the Jaguar XK120 Roadster began in 1948 with its first preview at the London Motor Show and would last until 1954. Over the years, Jaguar made 12,078 XK120 models. Of that, 7,631 were Roadsters, 2,678 were Fixed Head Coupes and 1,769 were Drop Head Coupes. The 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster, the first to compete with newly released Coupe models, and its other year models, would catapult Jaguar into big production numbers. Its immortal lines, with or without the detachable windscreen, would turn heads for centuries. If youre considering buying a 1952 Jaguar XK120 Roadster or any of the XK120 models, youve come to the right place.
