The 1950 Jaguar XK120 has an interesting history, one that you may not know about. Originally designed to show off the new Jaguar XK engine, the roadster model introduced at the 1948 London Motor Show may have never seen the production line had it not been for overwhelming interest from the public and the automotive industry at the time. With its beautiful, curvaceous styling, powerful engine, and state of the art chassis, the Jaguar XK120 quickly caused a sensation and Jaguar founder William Lyons had no choice but to enter the car into mass-production. For this reason, you will find the first 242 cars were actually made with aluminum bodies, prior to switching to pressed steel, as Jaguar never had intentions of moving the car into full production. In 1949, the first production roadster was delivered to American film actor Clark Gable.
