I know we have one 120 Fan on this forum. ;) ;)


Heralded at the time of its release as the fastest production car in the world, the Jaguar XK120 immediately made headlines. Launched at the London Motor Show in 1948, the XK120 not only laid a good deal of the foundation for the racing success of future Jaguar models to come, it also achieved results in its own right, including the highest-ever finish for a British marque at the Mille Miglia.

The Italian connection didn’t end with the famed 1000-mile race though, as a story of romance and derring do—the likes of which only history can provide—brought together Coventry’s big cat with the dark horse contender for the title of Italy’s greatest road racing driver.
