Jaguar XK120 OTS (1952) ex-Mille Miglia.
Wonderful car with matching nrs and ready for the 2016 Mille Miglia.
What a fantastic Jaguar XK120 OTS ! This car has participated in the Mille Miglia 2009, and is the perfect candidate for another participation in the 2016 edition. Cars which have been entered and accepted in previous editions offer a much bigger possibility for acceptance for future editions. On top of that, it is a beautiful example of the great XK120, with matching nrs and ready to use.
This example was delivered new in America in 1952, as most of the OTS versions. It came back to Europe in 1996, where it was completely restored by a marque specialist. In 2007, the car was sold to a Danish collector, who entered the car in the 2009 edition of the Mille Miglia. The car performed very well and finished the race without a single issue. After the Mille Miglia, it was acquired by Strojer Samlingen, a well known private collection in Denmark, where it was kept in very good condition. We purchased the car this summer, and had the brake system completely overhauled and carburetors rebuilt. A full service was done as well, and the XK is now in fantastic condition and a real pleasure to drive. The colour combination is gorgeous, and the car has just the right amount of patina as we like it.
So if you are looking for a sportscar to enter in the Mille Miglia (or any other great classic car event tout court), then this is a unique opportunity to obtain such a car, and still at a fairly reasonable price. This example ticks all the right boxes, and comes with FIVA Identity Card and a JDHT Heritage Certificate confirming it is a full matching nrs car.
