The Birth of a Legend

As this masterpiece of British engineering turns 75 this year, it’s not only drivers and owners that will get to enjoy the classic Jaguar XK120 in 2023 – park it up and you’ll soon have a crowd of people marvelling at the detail and craftmanship that has made this one of the most iconic cars ever made.

“The pure lines of the XK120 remain the epitome of a Jaguar sportscar.”

For many, the pure lines of the XK120 remain the epitome of a Jaguar sportscar, unfettered by the aesthetically unhelpful requirements of safety legislation and space requirements inside.
The car looked stunning, but it was also blessed with an incredible engine that would stand the test of time like no other. The XK power unit would be found in Jaguar cars for decades to come. The Jaguar XK120 was the complete package and is a sports car that still looks relevant all these years later.
The XK range would endure for years. If you needed that little bit more room – an XK120 FHC can require the skillset of a contortionist to get in and out of – the evolution of the car from the 120 to the 140 and onto the XK150 would retain the character of the early model while adding a layer of practicality and useability.

At SNG Barratt, we love the Jaguar classic XK range. We have had various models in our fleet over the years including a very memorable XK150 DHC. We used it for a number of events and tours, and it proved to be a fantastic way to view the UK during a couple of round Britain tours.

Our XK120 Roadster

Our current model is a glorious XK120 Roadster which looks all of its 70+ years on the outside but makes good use of a range of upgrade options on the inside, giving the car pace and handling in abundance. It really is a head turner and there is always a queue to get behind the big steering wheel on a sunny day.

SNG Barratt caters for all XK requirements regardless of which model you own or how you want to use it. For the purist, we provide original specification parts to achieve the score you are looking for on the concourse lawns; for the driver, we have a huge range of upgrade options to make your classic into something you long to drive today.These upgrades cover all areas of the car such as suspension, steering, electrics and, of course, braking, all important on those early XKs which don’t stop quite as smartly in modern traffic!
