Car to be at auction 7/21

www.silverstoneauctions.com/sa076-lot-16616-1951-jaguar-xk-120-roadster-lt-homag ...

Auction description:

JAGUAR XK 120 ROADSTER L/T HOMMAGE

Lot Number: 442

Registration Number XBV 205

Chassis Number 671577

Body Colour Green

Superbly-built, lightweight alloy-bodied 120 Roadster created as an accurate copy of one of the the trio of factory "LT" cars prepared for Le Mans in 1951.

‘671577' was manufactured on 17th September 1951 as a left-hand drive XK 120 OTS export model and dispatched to Hoffman in New York

The car returned from the USA in 2014 and was treated to a full body-off restoration.

The new owner wanted to create a competitive race car for the Jaguar Heritage Challenge series and instructed historic cars and racing expert Jim Tester of Tester Engineering to construct a tool-room copy of the alloy-bodied 'LT' Le Mans cars

Robert Gregson Jaguar bodies were asked to recreate the aluminium body, which was then mounted on to the original refurbished chassis prior to being prepared and painted by Normandale

Specification includes 3442cc engine, cast manifolds and twin 2” SU carburettors, 9” clutch and a standard rebuilt Jaguar 4-speed gearbox

Hired from its owner in 2015 by Jaguar Cars UK and run by them in the 5-round Jaguar Heritage Challenge with celebrity drivers

Beautifully detailed throughout and in exceptional condition

The car is user friendly and is correctly road registered with an age related number

With FIA/HTP papers pending, this is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiast who wants to aim for higher-profile events (Classic Le Mans, Goodwood, Monaco Historique etc.)

Description:

1951 XK120 ‘LT’ Le Mans Recreation FIA HTP

Superb ’tool room copy’ of one of the Works Jaguar XK120 ‘LT’ Lightweight race cars

A trio of original XK120 ‘LTs’ were built for the 1951 Le Mans - as back-up for the new C-Type in case it wasn't ready in time

Completed by marque experts Tester Engineering in 2015

Hired by Jaguar Cars UK for their celebrity drivers in the 5-round Jaguar Heritage Challenge

Returned to Tester in 2020 for rebuild to FIA/HTP standard

Beautifully detailed throughout and in exceptional condition

Competitive race car which is also user friendly for the road

FIA/HTP papers valid until 2031

Eligible for high profile historic events like Classic Le Mans and Goodwood

The story of how - in just 7 months - three Jaguar C-Types were conceived, built and driven to victory in the 1951 Le Mans, is the stuff of legend. What is less well known is that, as daring as this undertaking was, there was a Plan B. As an insurance policy against the C-Types not being ready on time, three alternative cars were also built; LT1; LT2 and LT3.

These were all XK120 Alloy-bodied race cars, and although this might have seemed familiar territory for Jaguar, having built 210 Alloy-bodied versions with the launch of the XK series in 1949, the LT - or Lightweight - was a very different animal. The lightweight alloy body was virtually one-piece, and not mounted on an Ash frame. The overall shape was subtly different, more purposeful and aggressive with cut-in bonnet; cut-down doors; over outer sills and a one-piece rear end, and Brooklands’ style aero screens.

But as the C-Types did go on to enjoy their historic win, the LT became 'the Le Mans Winner that never was’, and these very special XKs did little more than languish at Browns Lane before disappearing into relative obscurity on the West Coast of America.

Fast forward to 2015 and LT'4’ emerges from the workshops of Jim Tester, the result of a client brief to build a ’tool room copy’ of one of the three cars, that would be period-correct and capable of securing FIA papers to race in historic events. Almost the moment the XK was finished Jaguar Cars UK invited the car to run in the Jaguar Heritage Challenge Series, and offered to hire it for the purpose, to then give to their celebrity drivers for each of the 5 round-championship.

After the 2015 Challenge Series ended the car was put into storage until 2020. At this point the owner returned it to Tester Engineering to rebuild the XK to an FIA-spec for FIA/HTP making it eligible for a series of 'Blue Riband' classic events.

The result is both a competitive race car, which is eligible for historic events, and user-friendly road car, as well as a very rare recreation of one of Jaguar’s rarest competition cars.

Build completed 2015

Standard 4-speed gearbox.

Uprated aluminium radiator & oil cooler with exterior electric cooling fan.

A period steering box and a reconditioned ENV differential are fitted.

Drum brakes all round. Suspension rebuilt to FIA specification

New compliant exhaust system.
