The Jaguar XK special edition features all of the key XK models, from the XK120 through to the XK150, plus rare coachbuilt specials and significant competition machines. There’s an Alpine drive in ‘NUB 120’ – the XK120 that Ian and Pat Appleyard drove to Rallye des Alpes victory in 1950, 1951 and 1952 – a twin-test of the ex-Fangio C-type and the ex-Leslie Johnson XK120, plus behind-the-wheel evaluations of rare special-bodied XKs from coachbuilders including Pinin Farina, Ghia and Stabilimenti Farina.
With a foreword by William Lyon’s daughter Pat Quinn (née Appleyard), evocative photography and insightful writing, this compilation of Classic Cars’ best XK features is a must for any Jaguar fan.
