Auction Block: Jaguar XK 120 Junior

Dec 2, 2019

Replica kid’s cars are obviously nothing new, though very seldom do they come any more impressive than this charming pint-sized recreation of Jaguar’s mid-century XK120. The first model produced by the British manufacturer after production picked back up following WW2, the XK120 was a wonderfully-elegant sports car that was piloted to a myriad of noteworthy race wins in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s. It wasn’t only a great car, however, it was a symbol of pride for a recently war-ravaged Great Britain, so it’s not too hard to see why one would opt to replicate the XK when looking to recreate a scaled-down version of a British classic.

A near-perfect 2:3 scale recreation, this epic kid’s car replaces the 120’s Heynes-designed DOHC straight-six with an air-cooled 107cc single that’s married to a three-speed transmission (plus a reverse gear). The mini XK also boasts gorgeous bodywork and a fully-decorated interior, complete with stick-shift, horn, light switches, plush faux-leather seats, finished door-panels, folding windshields, and a bevy of working gauges. Everything on this scaled-down replica is fully functional, from its parking brake and pedals to its turn signals and doors, no detail was spared when piecing together this unique kid’s car. This awesome replica is slated to cross RM Sotheby’s auction block at the outfit’s upcoming Arizona sale in January of 2020.
