Offering unbeatable looks and performance to match, the XK 120 was a true landmark for Jaguar, establishing its reputation for crafting some of the best all-purpose sports cars. Examples like this demonstrate why, over 70 years after its debut, interest in the model has not waned.
After proving itself on race and endurance courses worldwide, the XK engine would become the mainstay of all future Jaguar products over the next six decades. The 160-horsepower 3.4-liter inline-six-cylinder engine was standard for the XK 120; also available was the 180-horsepower XK 120 SE (“Special Equipment”) specification. In addition to a C-Type cylinder head, the SE was fitted with wire wheels, upgraded suspension, and dual exhaust.

Equipped from the factory with the special equipment package, including high compression C-type head J dual exhaust, chrome wire wheels, and upgraded suspension.
