Jaguar XK120

At the moment of its introduction it was the fastest production car. Is it cool?

It's an old car that I've not lost the desire to own, despite the more-spartan-than-I'm-used-to-interior, thus it is just about sub-zero

Absolutely. Definitely cool. Not quite into sub-zero territory but a very cool and elegant car with a tremendous place in automotive history.

Definitely cool. Elegant, stylish with a hint of the cad about it. Almost as though it could be sub-zero if it wanted to be, but it's quite happy as it is thank you.

I like classics and especially Jaguars but this just doesn't hit the spot for me - not sure why. The XK140 is a bit better but still not cool for me. XK150 is cool as hell.

E types have always left me a bit indifferent but these are cool. When I was was a kid one used to park near where we lived with an arc of laurel leaf badges on the boot denoting race wins, though not sure whether XK 120/140/150 now. Anyone know from the badges?

Sub-Zero

A stunningly beautiful piece of car design - look at the line from the front wing to the rear haunches, it actually looks like the leaping Jaguar
