1959 Jaguar XK 150

Launched halfway through 1957, the Jaguar XK 150 was Jaguar’s answer to the growing demand for a more comfortable and refined sportscar. The final car in Jaguar’s XK range and a progressive development of its predecessors, the XK 150 retained a resemblance to the original XK 120 designed by Willian Lyons.

Improvements included the one-piece windscreen, the wider body resulting in more interior space and more power from the 3400cc straight six double overhead cam engine. now with 210 BHP. The increase in power was due to the B type cylinder head which improved mid-range flexibility.

The biggest improvement and talking point was the introduction of four-wheel Dunlop disc brakes. These were developed in 1953 for the Le mans 24-hour race and it was the first-time disc brakes were fitted to a production car.

The XK 150 was a very quick car for its era and the boot badge is a reminder of Jaguar’s Le mans victories which undoubtedly led to improved Jaguar road cars.

It is an original right hand drive car with a non-matching upgraded 3.8 l engine (originally a 3.4 l) that was fitted to the car in the UK prior to it being imported around 1983 (first registration in South Africa). A restoration commenced around 2009 with various modern upgrades fitted such as air-conditioning and a modern audio system.

It is a quick sports car even by today's standards and being an XK model provides a direct link to the Le mans race winning heritage in contrast to similarly priced Jaguar E type Coupes.
