Jaguar's William Lyons had an innate, subjective sense of style and design which distinguished Jaguars from their earliest days. But nothing anticipated the reception for the postwar XK 120 and its successor the XK 140. Their engine, a 3.4 liter dual overhead camshaft six was nothing less than state of the art, a design that challenged cars like Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz and Ferrari costing two, three or four times as much. In the 210hp XK 140 MC like this, with the Le Mans-winning C-type cylinder head, Jaguar combined William Lyons' svelte XK body style with a competition proven drivetrain, one of the most desirable of all postwar sports cars. Freshly repainted in Red with Tan leather interior, this is an accurate and correctly restored example in the most desirable and lightest Roadster body style with complete weather equipment, five chrome wire wheels, Lucas fog lamps and tool kit with lead knockoff hammer. The engine, cylinder head and ID plate numbers all match. A svelte and voluptuous Jaguar roadster that needs no excuses, this is the right configuration and the right car.
