Sold for $82,500 at 2007 Vintage Motor Car Auction at Meadow Brook Hall.
Sold for $143,000 at 2020 RM Sothebys : Palm Beach Online.
This 1950 Jaguar XK120 Roadster was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held at Meadow Brook where it was estimated to sell between $70,000 - $90,000. This car is powered by a 3442 cc twin overhead cam six-cylinder engine that is capable of producing 160 horsepower. It has a four-speed manual gearbox and four-wheel drum brakes. Since new, this car has been treated to a complex restoration. It is finished in red with tan Connolly leather interior. On all four corners are the correct steel wheels and fender spats. In the back can be found a period correct stainless steel exhaust system.

The Jaguar Xk120 Series was very reminiscent of the 'French Curves' of the pre-War era from marque's such as Delahaye and Bugatti. The styling was by William Lyons, owner of Jaguar, and was revolutionary and bold. His chief engineer, William Heynes, was tasked with designing the mechanical components. The XK120 was offered in three different body styles including roadsters, fixed head, and drop head.

The XK120 is always a popular vehicle no matter where it goes. At auction, this again proved to be true, as bidding climaxed at $82,500 including buyers premium and was sold.
