Jaguar XK150 3,8 l. Coupé 1959 LHD Chassis: S 836561 DN Engine: VA 1304-8 Looking at this XK150 Coupé, one has to admit that Jaguar boss, William Lyons, had a very good eye for styling. His initial Coupé design in 1951 on the XK120, which styling seems to be inspired by some of the Bugatti T57 Atalantes lines, was considered a masterpiece. William Lyons great talent was demonstrated in 1957 when he designed the XK150 Coupé which made immediately clear that an evolution model could evenso be well balanced, very attractive and in tune with late 50-ies coachbuilding. After the SS100 and the XK120, the XK150 Coupé was yet another Jaguar masterpiece! In my opinion, some colours enhance the beauty of a car-design. For this particular XK150 Coupé, finished in dark maroon (Aubergine), this is certainly the case. Complemented with a nice cream colour leather interior and a fresh set of carpets, the inside-out presentation is very attractive. All the chrome is sparkling and the engine bay super clean and nicely detailed. Another positive point is the fact that this particular Jaguar XK150 Coupé is the most powerful 3,8 litre variant. This Jaguar is matching numbers for chassis and engine, and a higher compression cylinderhead (9 instead of 8) was installed for just some extra power. This Jaguar XK150 Coupé is a real delight to drive on the road. Perfect seating position (even for tall drivers), all the power you-wish-for readily available and relaxed touring thanks to the overdrive and for its time very modern disc brakes. Inspection on the ramps shows a very clean and 100% sound structure, which obviously has been taken care of on a very regular base. Intelligently fitted with an electric Kenlow fan and an extra cooling water reservoir for piece of mind touring in modern traffic.
