The Classic Sale at Silverstone 2022

Lot Number 508

Registration Number XBV 206

Chassis Number 679052

Body Colour Blue

This outstanding XK120 Coupé was about to be transformed as an homage to the early factory lightweight cars and in particular one of the LT cars and continue its life with racing aspirations. Totally rebuilt over the following months by renowned Jaguar engineer Jim Tester of Tester Engineering to a standard rarely achieved, with an all new alloy body by Robert Gregson sitting on a fully refurbished and strengthened chassis externally finished to a superb level by Normandale. Mechanically, Tester rebuilt and fitted a 4.2 engine running triple Weber carburettors with full stainless sports manifold and exhaust, fitted disc brakes all round with adjustable suspension, adjustable pedal box, rebuilt rear axle with a Limited Slip Differential and Watts linkage. Internally, the same level of detail continued with a full cage, leather sports seats, harnesses and fire extinguisher system complimenting the other race accoutrements.Upon completion, the XK competed in two rounds of the 2015 Jaguar Heritage Challenge (Donnington Historic Festival and Silverstone International Festival) with a class win at Silverstone driven by Calum Lockie (multiple GT, Group 'C' and Endurance Champion). Remaining in storage until 2020, the car has now been fully recommissioned and is ready for use once again.

This really is an extraordinarily beautiful car. The lines of the bespoke LT-style alloy bodywork add a sense of purpose and the car looks exactly as you would hope, a full-house 50s racing Jaguar might look.This is countered by its presentation in a glorious shade of Midnight Blue with matching carpets and Navy Blue leather seats. Fit and finish are to Concours standards and the attention to detail is remarkable. It's correctly UK-registered with V5 documentation.

An outstanding and beautifully finished XK Coupé that is crying out to be taken by the scruff of the neck and enjoyed once again.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
