The Jaguar XK140, successor of the XK120, was introduced in 1954 and sold from 1955 to 1957. Whereas the focus of the XK120 was mainly on speed, the XK140 was built for ease of driving and comfort, including more modern shock absorbers. Because the engine in the XK140 is placed about 10 centimetres further forward, the legroom was enlarged and the car became suitable for taller people.

With the transition from the XK120 to the XK140, the characteristic lines are preserved. Jaguar built the XK140 as roadster, convertible and coupe.

About Jaguar XK140
The Jaguar XK140 is a sports car that was produced by Jaguar from 1954 to 1957 as a successor to the XK120. It featured a number of improvements over its predecessor, including better brakes, rack-and-pinion steering, and more interior space.

Under the hood, the XK140 was powered by a 3.4-liter straight-six engine that produced up to 190 horsepower, giving it impressive performance for its time. It was available in three body styles: a roadster, a fixed-head coupe, and a drophead coupe.

One of the most notable features of the XK140 was its stunning design, which was updated from the XK120 with more refined lines and a larger grille. The car also featured a number of luxurious touches, such as leather seats and a wood-rimmed steering wheel, making it a favorite among sports car enthusiasts and luxury car buyers alike.

The XK140 was also a successful racing car, with notable wins at events such as the Monte Carlo Rally and the Alpine Rally. It was also used in endurance racing, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Today, the Jaguar XK140 is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts, thanks to its stunning design, impressive performance, and rich racing history.
