Allmän beskrivning :
The final development of the successful XK range, the XK150 debuted in 1957 and was updated with a one-piece curved windshield and a higher beltline, among other revisions. The XK150 was available in either standard or Special Equipment tune, and by late 1959, the 3.4- and 3.8-litre engines could be ordered either with twin SU HD8 carburettors or as triple-carburetted “S” versions. As performance increased, with top speeds approaching 140 mph, so too did the demands for more effective braking, and accordingly, the XK150 became the first series-production car to feature power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes. The XK150 was truly a glorious pinnacle for the series, and today it remains very capable, attractive and desirable as ever.
We are pleased to present this 1960 Jaguar XK150 S 3.8 fixed head coupe in red with Soft Tan leather Upholstery. There were only 111 right hand drive 3.8 fixed head coupes produced in the “S” model, making this a particularly rare and desirable automobile. This matching number car with only 37802 miles since factory completion comes with a heritage trust certification to confirm its authenticity. The car was acquired by its current owner about 5 years ago. The Jaguar has since had the engine removed, disassembled and completely rebuilt. All mechanical components were sorted and restored by a marque specialist. Full photographic documentation of the restoration is available in the extensive file of history. This jaguar drives superbly well, as it should. This outstanding car will be perfect for touring or rallying. The interior is in excellent condition throughout. Jack and tools present.
This fine and rare example would be welcome in any collection of cars of exception.
Bespoke fiancial arrangements are available to assist in the purchase of this car.
