The 1960 Jaguar XK 150S 3.8 liter Drophead coupe is the ultimate XK-series Jaguar. Fitted with the triple carburetor 250hp 3,781cc inline six-cylinder engine with which Jaguar would power its revolutionary XKE at its introduction in 1961, only 19 left-hand drive XK 150S 3.8 Dropheads were built, making this probably the rarest of all variants of the XK series. This beautiful example is all matching numbers as it was created in Coventry a half century ago and is presented in particularly attractive and unusual metallic Imperial Maroon with inviting tan leather upholstery and a beige cloth top. The engine's performance is enhanced by the four-speed gearbox with electric overdrive for relaxed high speed cruising, one of thirteen left-hand driver XK 150S 3.8s with this desirable feature. It rides on chrome wire wheels tastefully mounted with blackwall radial tires. European headlights and Lucas fog lights and fender mirrors complete its dramatic visual presentation and emphasize its purpose as a serious driver's car. $150,000 was spent on this example's restoration and the paint, chrome, upholstery and top are witness to the restorer's efforts. The XK 150S 3.8 Drophead Coupe is the most coveted of all XK Jaguars, sought by informed and experienced collectors who appreciate its rare combination of performance, comfort and style. Rarely seen and even less often available, the 1960 Jaguar XK 150 S 3.8 Drophead Coupe is a rare opportunity for aficionados of esoteric, powerful, comfortable sports cars.
