A mint condition 1952 Jaguar XK120 SE Coupe – Jaguar’s first sports car since the 1940 SS Jaguar 100. The ‘120’ indicated its impressive top speed in miles per hour (193km/h).
Yours for around €150,000.
Other modifications by Jaguar Land Rover Classic include LED headlamps and revised instrumentation based on the original 1968 layout.
The prototype was unveiled in London last weekend to gauge interest in production and, presumably, remind customers that after 2020, Jaguar Land Rover will cease making petrol and diesel engined cars altogether.
A rare, curvaceous 1957 Jaguar XKSS .
In 1957, a fire at Jaguar’s Browns Lane plant in Coventry destroyed every unfinished XKSS chassis. This car was one of only sixteen to have been shipped before the fire.
Having won a series of races in Canada between 1957 and 1961, it was fully restored to Concours quality by its current owner, who acquired it in 1997.
Yours right now for a mere $16,000,000 (€15,000,000)
Thanks Realtan Ni Leannain

I like this a lot. Dubliner William Armstrong has had his first test ad shortlisted for the Cannes Lions Young Director Award, which is announced this week.”It’s 60 seconds, produced for €0, ‘a car ad without a car’.”
The body of the XKX is covered by a layer housing microscopic ripples of piezoelectric cells, which, stimulated by the pressure of the air flowing over them (the actual air friction experienced by the car) produce electricity that is fed back to the vehicle’s battery, increasing both efficiency and performance.
It also has ‘disappearing’ side mirrors.
