Jaguar Recreates Historic XK120 Sprint Test Page Two
To provide an appropriate backdrop and historical context for the new F-TYPE, four classic Jaguars had also been assembled for this event including Jaguar Heritage’s 1956 long nose D-type 393RW, which won its maiden race outing in the 12 hour race at Reims and finished 6th at Le Mans. The other cars included an original 1949 XK120 belonging to John Burton, the fabulous 1952 C-type chassis XKC-004 (still regularly raced by owner Nigel Webb) and an immaculate 1961 E-type owned by CMC boss Peter Neumark, believed to be the first right hand drive Series 1 car sold.
