THE FLYING JAGUAR 1952
Jaguar MKX120 - One off - Goodwood
Sold by the gallery
The chassis for this unique XK120 coupe was ordered from Jaguar's Belgian importer, Mme. Bourgeois, and sent directly to the Italian coachbuilder, Stabilimenti Farina, with instructions to create a one-off coupé body to star on her Jaguar stand at the 1952 Brussels Motor Show. Christened "The Flying Jaguar", this 1952 car was one of three special Jaguars commissioned by Mme. Bourgeois from Stabilimenti Farina, the other two beoing based on the large Mark VI saloon - the 1951 "Meteor" coupé, plus the 1952 "Golden Arrow" cabriolet. Despite being based on one of the most iconic of all British sports cars, this one-off Farina XK120 has never been seen in the UK, until now.
