The Jaguar XK 120 was to be a prestigious vehicle and produced in low numbers. The designation 120 represented the vehicles top speed of 120 miles per hour. At the time it was the fastest production car built.
The British Auto industry took a hit after WWII many manufactures went out of business or had factories destroyed during the was. Williams Lyons owner of Jaguar set out to build a car thats was faster, more reliable, stylish, and cost effective to the public. Lyons designed the car and with his chief engineer and took on the task of configuring its mechanical component . The car was displayed at the Earls Court Show and the reception was overwhelming. Originally Lyons planned to build 100 maybe 200 XK 120s but with the reaction of the public the new Jaguar was a immediate success and the car went into streamlined production. The cars body was changed from an handbuilt all aluminum vehicle to a standard all steel production to keep up with public demand.
