Super JAG (Sep, 1954)

Super JAG

BACK in 1948 the first few Jaguar XK-120 roadsters were shipped to this country from merry old England. This was shortly after a prototype model had clocked a speed of more than 130 mph in a test run. In the years that followed this sleek sports car proceeded to make quite a name for itself, both in competition and on the road, topping off the whole thing with two spectacular wins in the famed Le Mans races of 1951 and 1953. The latter Le Mans cars were actually modified versions known as XK-120 C Jags and now there is an entirely new model of the fabulous “C”—truly a super Jag.
