This Gorgeous 1954 Jaguar XK120M Racer Is Up for Grabs
Few vintage vehicles have the level of charm that classic Jaguars do, but this properly maintained and thoroughly raced 1954 Jaguar XK120M is simply beautiful, and it could be yours during the “Elegance at Hershey” auction.
Dubbed the “gentleman racer,” this vintage race car was originally shipped to New York directly from Coventry, England in August of 1954. Shortly after that, the Jaguar began its transformation into a full-on race car in order to participate in VSCCA (Vintage Sports Car Club of America) sanctioned events. The XK120M had to undergo serious weight reduction measures, but in the end, it managed to collect several class victories at iconic racetracks across the United States.
This Jaguar has also won Best Comp Car in the Scarsdale Concours as well as the Grand Marshall Award at the 2015 Greenwich Concours — given by James Glickenhaus, no less.
It’s selling at no reserve on June 11th. So you better hurry!
