Yep i know, thats why i asked for that. This car was made with aerodynamics in mind. The flat bottom may not look like much for anybody else, but could have made the car's picture complete.

The Gorgeous evocative XJ 13.
Beautiful cars - wish I could afford the real thing though!
Enjoy!
Hi shankar.balan, Lovely cars both, in British Racing Green !!
We all feel that way, how fantastic it would be to possess these
great machines. I suppose scale model collections are so satisfying to us as real cars are not available leave alone affordable .

Default The British cat, now with an Indian master-The Jaguar.

Here are two 1948 Jaguar XK120s from my collection, one a
Coupe and the other a Roadster both in British racing green.
The Jaguar XK 120 was the first post war production car
from Jaguar succeeding the SS100. The XK 120 name referred
to the car's impressive 120 MPH top speed and at the time of
its launch it was the world's fastest standard production car.
These are Bburago 1 : 24 Scale.

I really dont like these Maisto Bike models. They are flimsy and are just plain and simply toys....
