1953 Jaguar XK 120

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Essen event, 11 - 12 April 2019. Estimate:?160.000 - ?220.000 Fully restored, presented in excellent condition and in its original coloursRetains its original engineAccompanied by a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) Certificate The modern looks of the XK 120 were matched by the engineering under its skin. Its sturdy box-section chassis featured torsion bar independent front suspension, and its live rear-axle rode on long semi-elliptical leaf springs. Brakes were Lockheed hydraulic drum units with twin leading shoes and a generous 12-in. diameter. The heart and soul of the car was a 3,442-cc, dual overhead-cam six-cylinder that had begun life as a two-litre, four-cylinder design. The XK 120 was unquestionably one of the finest sports cars of its day. Its chassis provided amazing handling and its engine delivered record-breaking top speed. Factory test driver Ron Sutton drove one to a speed of over 130 mph on a Belgian road, proving that its name was actually an understatement of the car?s performance credentials, and it was definitely not a marketing exaggeration. Jaguar?s 3.4-litre straight-six is perhaps one of the greatest engine designs of all time, and it would prove so successful that the company would retain its basic design for use in its road-going cars for nearly 40 years.As confirmed by its JDHT Certificate, this beautifully presented XK 120 Roadster was manufactured on 27 May 1953 and dispatched to its supplying dealer, Hoffman in New York, on 11 June 1953. Originally specified with a Black exterior, Red leather interior and a Black hood, today, this stunning XK 120 Roadster is presented in perfect condition, in the same colours as when it left the Jaguar factory. Boasting its original engine and superb presentation following its extensive restoration, this XK 120 Roadster wants for nothing. The Jaguar XK 120 remains eligible for the world?s greatest historic motoring events, such as the Mille Miglia Storica, Le Mans Classic and Tour Auto, and this example would be ideal for any event its new owner wishes to participate in. ? Präsentiert sich nach Vollrestaurierung in exzellentem Zustand und in Originalfarben? Originalmotor ? Mit Zertifikat des Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust (JDHT) Beim Jaguar XK120 hielt die Technik unter dem Kleid was die moderne Optik versprach. Er hatte einen robusten Kastenrahmen, Torsionsfedern und Einzelradaufhängung vorn sowie eine Starrachse hinten mit langen halbelliptischen Blattfedern. Die Lockheed-Trommelbremsen rundum mit doppelten Bremsbacken waren mit 30 cm Durchmesser großzügig bemessen. Das Herz des ganzen war jedoch der 3.442 cm³ Reihensechszylinder mit doppelter obenliegender Nockenwelle, der sein Leben als Zweiliter-Vierzylinder begonnen hatte. Der XK120 war zweifelsohne einer der besten Sportwagen seiner Zeit ? mit beeindruckendem Handling und einem Motor für rekordverdächtige Geschwindigkeiten. Werksrennfahrer Ron Sutton fuhr auf belgischen Straßen mit Geschwindigkeiten von über 130 mph (209 km/h) und belegte so, dass der Name des neuen Jaguar noch untertrieben und nicht nur ein Marketinggag war. Der 3.4 Jaguar Reihensechser ist wahrscheinlich einer der besten Motoren aller Zeiten; er erwies sich als so erfolgreich, dass die Jaguar Motoren der nächsten 40 Jahre auf ihn zurückzuführen waren. Wie aus dem Zertifikat der JDHT hervorgeht, wurde dieser wunderschöne Jaguar XK120 Roadster am 27. Mai 1953 hergestellt und am 11. Juni 1953 an den ausliefernden Händler Hoffman in New York ausgeliefert. Heute präsentiert sich dieser Roadster in beeindruckendem Zustand und noch immer in der originalen Farbkombination, in der er das Jaguar Werk verlassen hat: schwarzer Lack, rotes Leder und schwarzes Verdeck. Der Wagen verfügt noch über den Originalmotor; und nach einer umfangreichen Restaurierung fehlt es ihm an nichts. Der Jaguar XK120 ist zugelassen zu den besten historischen Events der Welt, wie der Mille Miglia Storica, den Le Mans Classic oder der Tour Auto ? ein ideales Auto für jede Art von Event, an dem der neue Besitzer teilnehmen möchte.
