Jaguar XK 140 OTS

About this car

The XK140 was introduced in October 1954 at the London Motor Show as the successor to the XK120; it was easily distinguishable from its predecessor by its more substantial front and rear bumpers, a radiator grille with fewer slats, and a chromium strip which ran along the centre of the bonnet and boot. A major improvement was to lengthen the cockpit to make the car more comfortable for taller drivers. Under the bonnet the 140 had the superb six cylinder XK 3.4 litre engine, basically the same as the Special Equipment XK120 unit, producing an impressive 190bhp at 5,600rpm.

Winning spirit

The new model sold very well indeed, with orders flooding in for two main reasons: firstly, the proven excellence of the old XK120, and also because of the enormous success Jaguar was enjoying in international motor racing, winning Le Mans in 1951 and 1953 with the C-Type and in 1955, 1956 and 1957 with the D-Type.

Perfect spec 


Our car presented here left the Jaguar factory in July 1956. Originally ordered in British racing Green over a Cognac leather interior, just as the car presents today. The car is matching engine number and color combination. It has been thoroughly restored during 10 years (!) in order to achieve the actual pristine condition. No cost was spared to reach the highest restoration results…

Best in class


The car comes with bills and some history even as with a German valuation report in which the car receives the quote “1”, being the best one…

This is no doubt the perfect example for whom willling to buy this beloved and successfull model in the most british configuration ever!
