I've just returned from Retromobile in Paris and saw a dark green XK120 on a dealer's stand purporting to be the original 170+ mph Jabekke car.

Priced at 4 million euros it was in beautiful condition and slightly out of my price range but to me it looked too good; over restored and probably nothing like the hastily, dare I say cobbled together, streamlined special the factory built. Lovely though but it should really be in a suitable museum.

Anyone know any more about its JD Classics' restoration about 11 years ago? Is it genuine or a recreation/replica or something else?
