As classic Jaguar specialists, Marreyt Classic Cars can truly acknowledge that the XK140 SE OTS (Open Two Seater) is one of the finest British classics around. Beyond its strikingly beautiful and incredibly curvaceous body, this is a sports car that was built to be driven.
Driving a car like this classic XK140 will quickly make you appreciate any of the countless advancements offered in modern sports cars. But modern sports cars have also sterilized the driving experience, solving everything with equations rather than emotion.
Think of the XK140 as just one step closer in Jaguar’s sports car evolution toward the transcendent E-Type. With a 3.4-liter straight-six nestled under its elongated hood, the optional C-Type cylinder head pushes out a claimed 210 horsepower at the flywheel, which was plenty of power for the day! A four-speed manual gearbox + overdrive (for more relaxed touring) manages power transfer and a set of drum brakes at all four corners are at your disposal when it comes time to bring the Brit to a halt.
This XK140 was delivered new in the USA in 1955 in Pearl Grey. Now painted in the iconic colour 'British Racing Green’, and together with an original black leather interior and trim, it makes for a very classic and pleasing color combination. In addition, the slightly smaller mounted steering wheel offers more legroom for the taller drivers among us.
In conclusion: a very sharp steering & well sorted LHD XK!
