  • As the planned new saloon body was not ready for the 1948 Earls Court Motor Show, contemporary Jaguar management decided that the new XK engine would instead be launched in a roadster, the XK 120. Boasting a 3.4-litre, twin-cam inline-six cylinder engine that made 160 bhp, the XK120 could allegedly reach a top speed of 120 mph, making it the fastest production car at the time. In June 1952, the XK120 could be specified in SE configuration, which produced 180 horsepower when fitted with a C-Type cylinder head. Additionally, it featured wire wheels, upgraded suspension and a dual exhaust.

     

    The magnificent 1953 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster featured here is finished in gorgeous Carmen Red over biscuit leather interior and matching convertible top. Recipient of a no expense spared show quality restoration by marque specialists. This incredible example has been part of the famed Southern California collection of Donald L. Weber for over 20 years where it had been a multiple show winner, including the prominent Newport Beach Concours d’ Elegance. This investment-grade Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster was dispatched from the factory to distributor Hornburg Jaguar in Los Angeles, on January 8, 1953, and remained in Southern California until 2021, and still retains its original matching numbers SE specification performance engine. Included are its original owner’s manual, service records, as well as jack, tire pump, tool roll, and side curtains. I personally believe the investment potential of this extremely rare and sought-after Jaguar Roadster will grow beyond your imagination. This is an incredible opportunity to acquire one of the best examples of a 1953 Jaguar XK120 SE Roadster on the market today. Offered to the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who desires to own the best.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
