One-off classic Jaguar visits London for the first time

An immaculately finished and totally unique Jaguar XK120 will take centre stage at the London Classic Car Show, in its first UK outing since the gruelling restoration project that brought it back from the grave.

A 6,725-hour restoration process turned the car from a rotting husk into a gleaming motorcar, returning it to the sleek lines of its youth. It's a total one-off car, too – the only Jaguar XK120 to be bodied by Italian coachbuilder Pininfarina. The stylist was tasked to 'reinterpret the shapes of the XK' before it first went on display at the 1955 Geneva Motor Show.
