This Jaguar XK150 is an original UK right hand drive 3.8 S model. It was delivered to Parkers in Bolton in 1960 and was finished in Pearly Grey with Red interior. The car was originally built as a fixedhead coupe but during an extensively restoration in the 1990s it was expertly converted to a drophead coupe. Much of this cars history since restoration is documented in an extensive history file.
The car has since been extensively upgraded with much of the work carried out here at Twyford Moors during the 2000s with bills running into the tens of thousands. This XK150 has been upgraded in a very driver focused way and features many performance modifications. The triple carburettor engine was rebuilt to fast road specification by Sigma Engineering in 2005/2006. The engine is matched up to a five-speed gearbox and the car benefits from four pot aluminium brake callipers and vented brake discs. The suspension is similarly improved to handle the increased performance with polyurethane bushes, adjustable shock absorbers and an uprated antiroll bar. The motorsport look is completed with bonnet and boot straps, a set of Dunlop Racing wheels and Yokohama tyres. To improve reliability and usability the car features electronic ignition, an alternator, electric cooling fan, expansion tank for the cooling system and power steering. Finally, the interior has been upgraded with a walnut dashboard, CD, radio and satnav, a Brantz rally meter and a pedal box.
Don't be fooled by the sporting look and impressive specification; this car is a very comfortable and civilised car to drive on the road and would be ideally suited to touring. Get the car on a track or a rally stage and you could really open her up and make the most of the performance.
This Jaguar XK150 3.8 S has had no expense spared in its restoration, improvement or subsequent maintenance. It is stunningly presented and, on the button, ready to go with no need for further improvements. A true driver's car.
