The Jaguar XK120 was released as part of the 'Cars of the Fifties' range in the closing days of Mettoy, April 1983. It is a decent model of a wonderful car presented as a closed cabriolet and an open roadster.

The open car is a rally version with Rallye des Alpes rally plates (804). This car was rallied by its owner Ian Applyard with his wife Pat (daughter of William Lyons of Jaguar) as co-driver. With this car he won the RAC rally twice, the Tulip Rally and the Coupe de Or in the 1952 Alpine Rally, he also competed in alpine skiing representing Great Britain at the 1948 Olympic Games. He went on to write books on ornithology. The closed cabrio was red with a black hood (803).

It continued to be released in new versions in the post-Mettoy Corgi company.
