This 1949 XK-120 Jaguar was driven by Emma Stone in the movie and was considered exotic in its day, making it an instant A-List Hollywood favourite. In fact the first car produced was sold to Clark Cable. The '120' in the car's model designation refers to its top speed of 120 miles per hour, which made the Jaguar the fastest regular production car at the time.
