One of the greatest post war sports cars of all time, the 1953 Jaguar XK 120 employed very advanced technology. A dual overhead cam 3.4 L straight-6 with an alloy cylinder head and twin side draft SU carburetors developed 160 bhp with the standard 8:1 compression ratio. The XK 120 name referred to the top speed the car was capable of - 120 mph (193 km/h) - and at the time of its introduction in 1951, the Jag could lay claim to being the world's fastest standard production car.
