The Jaguar XK150:

In 1957 Jaguar launched its final version of the successful and glamorous XK range, the XK150. Modern styling touches included a revised front grille, full width deeper bumpers appeared as well as a deeper one piece windscreen.

The car offered here is one of only 38 Jaguar XK150 S 3.8 OTS (Open Two-Seater), with only 24 being RHD. The ‘S’ model featured an uprated engine boasting no less than 265 BHP making it not only the fastest of all XKs, with a top speed of 136mph, but also the most expensive with a cost of roughly £2,200 in the UK market. The XK150 S was also the first XK to carry Dunlop disc brakes as standard following their lengthy and successful development on Jaguar sports-racing cars.

This Jaguar XK150 S 3.8 Roadster

The car offered here, chassis T 820078 DN completed manufacture on 09th May 1960 and was despatched to the London Jaguar dealer, Henlys Limited, four days later. This open two-seat, right-hand drive car was originally finished in cream with a red interior and black hood, the same specification as it is offered today. It was the 11th of only 17 RHD Jaguar XK150 S 3.8 OTS built in 1960 and was fitted with engine number VAS 1189-9, gearbox number JLS 45990 JS and body number F 17203, all of which it still retains today. The car was also ordered new with a manual gearbox and overdrive, an option which adds to this cars touring capabilities.

Although the cars first owner is unknown, the car passed to Mr John May of XK Developments. Mr May is a renowned expert in the Jaguar XK world, and with a lifetime of experience has built a company, XK Developments, specialising in the restoration and enhancement of Jaguar XK models.

By 2008 the car was offered by JD Classics whose description mentioned the car having received “a total chassis-off restoration 10 years ago, very little used since”. Having passed through another owner the car was inspected by Chris Keith-Lucas (CKL Developments) in the UK prior to purchase by the current owner. Mr Keith-Lucas’ examination report is included in the cars history file and confirms the car to be “clearly a genuine XK 150S.”

Today the car is presented in great condition, showing light signs of use since its restoration. The XK150 S 3.8 OTS is quite simply the ultimate Jaguar XK open two-seater, the most powerful and the fastest, a car for the true classic car connoisseur who wishes to indulge in the driving pleasure these great machines offer.
