During the 1953 model year, the 1953 Jaguar XK120 Roadster was presented with a new sister in the XK120 lineup: the XK120 Drop Head Coupe. Offering the more luxurious appointments of the Fixed Head Coupe, including a walnut veneered dash and trim and wind-up windows, the Drop Head Coupe also featured a heavier, better sealing and more convenient top that incorporated a more complicated frame, padding and headliner. The 1953 Jaguar Roadster, however, was still widely popular with those true sports car enthusiasts that wanted the authentic, raw feel of the Jaguars they saw in competition across the globe. It was in fact the Jaguar XK120 Roadster that clinched the victory at Le Mans in 1951-1953 and the Coupe dOr (Gold Cup) in the 1952 Alpine Rally. Still today, the Roadster model is perhaps one of the most recognizable, even among those who have little to no knowledge of Jaguar history. Quite simply, its stylish lines and sophisticated curvature has allowed the Jaguar XK120 Roadster to become an icon in the classic car market.
