120 mph: The Jaguar XK 120 in Jabbeke

Ladies and Gentlemen, valued customers!

It was a good tradition to name new models after their accessible top speed: Rover 75, Brough SS80, Austin Healey 100. And then there came Jaguar, the former sidecar maker, built a dropdead beautiful body around their powerful new engine and called it the XK 120. The worlds fastest production car.

There was no motorway in England at this time, but there was in Belgium. So they brought a standard car to the A10 motorway, which had a long straight a few miles outside Oostende. Near Jabbeke the XK 120 reached the incredible top speed of 132 mph. 132!! Even the Dragon Rapide did only 125.

Since then, the XK 120 models are something special. And we'll help you to keep it this way: Today with some ideas concerning brakes and axles.
