1953 JAGUAR XK120 DROPHEAD COUPÉ

Classic Sports Car - - Silverstone Classic 2018 -

Barry Lovett isn’t shy about driv­ing his Jaguar, one of the stars of the week­end’s 70th-birth­day XK pa­rade – he’s taken it to the Le Mans Clas­sic three times, driven around the Cir­cuit de la Sarthe twice and en­joyed Con­ti­nen­tal tours with the Jaguar En­thu­si­asts’ Club. “I’ve owned it for 14 years,” he says. “I bought it with a good body, but the me­chan­i­cals needed work.” He de­scribes his XK120 as “fairly orig­i­nal”, adding: “It’s not too shiny, but I like it that way.”
