The rise of Jaguar as a major manufacturer is directly linked to the great XK series engine that was conceived and designed by William Lyons and his team of engineers during the war years. In the spring of 1949, a bronze coloured XK120 had slipped quietly out of the Jaguar works to Dover and across the English Channel by ferry to Belgium to do some high speed tests on the motorway between Ostend and Brussels. The roadster achieved a speed of 126 mph with the soft top up and side screens in place. The XK120 roadster just about re-invented the modern sports car as we know it today. The roadsters were used to great effect in just about every type of sport motoring, rallying and racing and the famous XK C Type was derived directly from the XK120 to become one of the truly great race cars of all time.
Jaguar had built just 57 right hand drive and 183 left hand drive roadsters before discontinuing the alloy (aluminum) body!!!
