Description

The final rendition of the XK appeared in May 1957. Easily identifiable by its higher scuttle and door line, and much wider grille, the XK150 retained the mechanical layout of its predecessor; in 210bhp XK150 S form, however, it marked a Jaguar first in having all-round disc brakes, an asset with 0-60mph acceleration of 8.5 seconds and a 125mph maximum. For 1960, the penultimate year of production, the 3,781cc engine was fitted, which in S guise produced 265bhp, sufficient for 132mph and 0-60mph in just 7.5 seconds.

This close continuation of a 3.8L “S” was delivered new to London in the summer of 1960. Powered by a  reconditioned  3.8L “S” engine with overdrive,  the car found a new home at the Savoy hotel where it enjoyed an extensive restoration.  Coming complete with a detailed service history file along with bills and receipts, the car is described as being in ‘excellent condition’ and ready to enjoy. 

Cette descendante de la 3.8L « S » a été livrée neuve à Londres pendant l’été 1960. Propulsée par un moteur 3.8L à vitesse surmutipliée, la voiture a trouvé un nouveau foyer à l’hôtel Savoy où elle a bénéficié d’une importante restauration. Livrée avec un dossier historique complet, des factures et des reçus, la voiture est décrite comme étant en excellent état et prête à être appréciée.
