Thousands of vehicles go through ADESA auction lanes every week, and every so often, we have the pleasure of offering unique and exotic inventory. This month, the car that sparked Jay Leno’s collectible car passion will be passing through one of our auction locations.

This 1954 Jaguar XK120 will hit the lanes at ADESA Phoenix on April 24, 2013. It is a rare factory two-seat roadster. Built to compete in road rallies and hill climb competitions, it features an upgraded, high-performance power train. The car also is a former Jaguar Clubs of North America National Race Car Class winner.

Take a quick tour with the video and slideshow below to see (and hear) this beautiful classic up close. Registered ADESA dealer customers have the opportunity to participate in the auction at the ADESA Phoenix location or online via ADESA LiveBlock.
