The E-Type gets all the attention, but it’s far from the only sexy model in Jaguar’s archives.

The XK120, built from 1948 and 1954, was one of the first true postwar sports cars and became an instant icon.

‘Fast, very handsome and well-sorted’ is how RM describes it

At RM Auctions’ Amelia Island sale on March 10, this exquisite example from 1954 is slated to bring in up to $230,000.

The late-model roadster was shown at the 1972 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and placed second in class.

“Fast, very handsome and well-sorted” is how RM describes it.

If you can think of anything better than that, you know how to reach us…
