„Jaguar XK 140.“

from the gallery of Mike Jeffries

When Jaguar cars introduced their XK120 range of sports cars in 1948 the effect was electric, all previous cars immediately looked very dated and it set new standards for the industry. It performed even better than it looked thanks to it’s brilliant ohc engine and superb, for its day, road-holding.

It was also relatively inexpensive costing under a £1000 new when most comparable cars were three or even four times as much, truly one of the all time classics but at one time in the 1960s one could be picked up for a few hundred pounds. The XK140 was its updated replacement in1954.
