Jay Leno has a poster in his garage which is an advertisement for the 1954 Jaguar XK. It features both coupe and convertible models. Now, Jay got the Roadster first and had it heavily modified, but then he felt he should also get the Coupe. So he did, but he’s leaving this one in standard condition.
This beautiful Jaguar XK120M Coupe was the fastest sports car of its time. It belongs to Jag’s golden era when they also made the V12 XJ and of course the E-Type. Fortunately, those days are coming back, what with projects like the Jaguar F-Type. It is not going to have the same impact this XK120 had back in its day, but it will definitely be one of the world’s top sports cars when it launches next year.
So check out the F-Type’s grand daddy, the XK120, in the hands of Mr. Leno:
