The restoration was finished to the very highest standards and the mechanical condition of the car permits it to be used immediately and often. The supercharger adds a tangible boost in performance. Some strategic heat shielding keeps the interior nice and comfortable on warm days. Sparkling chrome wire wheels are really the only choice on an XK120 like this, and they carry recent 6.00-16 wide whitewall tires for a period-correct look.The interior was equally well restored using correct materials and patterns throughout. That's glove-soft Connolley leather from Bartlett's and plush Wilton wool carpets are on the floor. Lights, horn, turn signals, and heater are all fully operational. All the chrome was restored, including the bumpers, grille, and windshield frame, and it carries a correct set of Lucas tri-bar headlights and accessory driving lights up front.The car was stripped to bare metal and rebuilt from there and the exacting gaps, beautiful, smooth panels, and spectacular Signal Red paint all reflect a spare-no-expense restoration to the very highest standards.Car has stunning good looks, impeccable road manners, and a lot more power than you've ever experienced in an early XK.

There's no doubt that Tesla is downshifting while Fisker has been grinding its gears. But it wasn't always that way.
In the wake of Tesla's recent success, it's easy to forget that there were once two California electric carmakers with bright futures.
Following the teaser of the Jaguar CX-17 Concept released last weekend, the first official image of the Jaguar crossover concept appears to have hit the Internet ahead of its introduction at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Assuming this is the real deal, the tall, upright front end removes any doubt that this is anything but a preview for the upcoming Jaguar crossover, which will likely be called either the XQ or the Q-Series. Reports suggest that Jag's first-ever CUV is likely to go into production in 2016, and it will bring with it the option for a Jaguar-developed four-cylinder engine replacing the current mills still sourced from former parent Ford.
One-make racing series have become all the rage for customers who want to actually race their exotic sports cars (or competition-spec versions of them, anyway). Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and Aston Martin all offer such programs, and Porsche supports several. Now Jaguar is getting in on the action as well, but instead of turning one of its production models - we're looking at you, F-Type - into a spec racer, it's launching an historic racing series instead.
The 2015 Jaguar Heritage Challenge will be open to cars made by the Leaping Cat marque before 1966, including the C-Type, D-Type, E-Type and Mk I and MkII sedans. The series, which builds on the success of the previous Jaguar E-Type Challenge, will be administered by the Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC) based at Silverstone and will include four races in the UK and one in Europe, with the exact schedule still to be determined.
The program was announced at the launch of the Jaguar Heritage Driving Experience, where Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations director John Edwards was also named chairman of the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, replacing former Jaguar managing director Mike O'Driscoll who chaired the organization for the past five years.
