"1958 JAGUAR XK150 3.4L S OTS Chassis... - Lot 65 - Osenat
"1958 JAGUAR XK150 3.4L S OTS Chassis number S830583DN Rare "S" version Jaguar Heritage Trust American circulation title Dedicated - 846A Last born of the XK generation, the 150 was born in 1957 after the 120 and 140. Modernized, redesigned, more imposing, it is easily recognizable from its two big sisters by its full windshield and less baroque body lines. Innovation, the car is proposed with two engines; a 6 cylinders 3,4L which made its proofs in competition under the hood of Type-C and Type-D and a new engine 3,8L more powerful both being able to decline in version "S" with 3 carburetors SU. Available in 3 body styles like its two predecessors, the 150 is an example of automotive beauty that allowed a large number of lucky people to have a real sporting experience in a particularly luxurious and well-built car. Replaced in the early 1960's by the mythical Type-E, the XK range will remain a reference among collectors with a driving pleasure still intact 70 years later. The model we present is a rare 3.4L "S" roadster first registered in June 1958 in New-York, USA. In its original aesthetic configuration, the S version gives the car a clear increase in power thanks to 3 SU HD8 carburetors, those that allow to send 250 horsepower to the rear wheels and to make the roadster a real racy sports car. Particularly well restored, this XK 150 "S" is not to be missed and corresponds to the holy grail of the XK range that allowed Jaguar to count as a solid competitor to sports car manufacturers.
