In our opinion, the Jaguar XK remains one of the great trendsetters in British automotive history. Firstly, the car always looks very attractive in all its variants with its curving lines, and the combination of reliable, very good performance technology makes the car the classic for many. The different bodywork variants, the OTS (Open Two Seater), the DHC (Drop Head Coupe) and FHC (Fixed Head Coupe), ensure that every enthusiast can make their own choice.

The XK 140 that we now offer is the Drop Head Coupe. So it is equipped with a beautiful, in this case blue, soft top that is very quick and easy to store, after which you can drive in a wonderfully sheltered position, because it has retractable side windows. The interior offers plenty of room for two people, while behind the seats there is an excellent storage space for the extra luggage in case if the large trunk is already full.

This concerns the most powerful XK 140 version, the SE (Special Equipment) with the 3.4 Liter in-line six that delivers 213 HP. According to the supplied Heritage Certificate, the car still has the original “matching numbers” engine, but the gearbox was changed. An automatic gearbox was originally fitted. But you really shouldn’t want that, because the torque-rich engine character will not show his potential and the car feels much slower that equipped with a manual gearbox. That is why an original 4-speed manual gearbox with overdrive has been installed, exactly as it should be. This overdrive option makes the car a even better driving at a higher speed, because with the overdrive engaged the speed drops by about 600 rpm and it all becomes even more comfortable.

The owner bought the car in 2013 and subsequently completely restored it. Everything is recorded in photos, documents and invoices. The major and specialistic work such as sheet metal, painting and engine overhaul were outsourced to the professionals who worked on this on a daily basis. The owner did the rest in his limited spare time. In his profession, accustomed to striving for perfectionism on a daily basis, it was only logical that the XK should be restored in detail according to the same standards. And it certainly worked out that way. Even details like the original tool kit, which is often missing, is present in the trunk.

The car has been optically and technically in new condition. We can make an extensive list of all the things that have been carried out, but we can also summarize it in one word: everything. Nothing was left to chance and we would like to emphasize the beautiful bodywork. Why? Well, because this immediately shows the attention and quality standard they have worked with. The body of an XK is not the easiest car to restore due to its large surfaces and tight fits. Craftsmanship is absolutely necessary to achieve a result as this XK 140 shows. The beautiful dark blue paint, called Pacific Blue, further emphasizes the “tightness” of the body and the beautiful paintwork. But the finish of all chrome parts is also impressive, as is the interior, which clearly shows that the superb way in which the upholstery and leather is processed can hardly be surpassed.

According to the owner, the time has now come to say goodbye to his hobby and has therefore asked us to find a new “custodian” for this piece of British heritage. Of course, that has to be someone with a “Jag” heart. Someone who has gasoline flowing through his veins and wants to make the long-cherished wish of owning a perfect XK 140 Drop Head Coupe come true. Someone who does not intend to have to wait for a restoration to be completed, much less spend the money to do so. Because a restoration often costs more than the market value of the car. This car is ready, has been run for only a few thousand kilometers and is very attractively priced. Do you see yourself riding the most beautiful tours at home and abroad? Sometimes “pedal to the metal” driving when possible and at a relaxed speed when the view is so beautiful that it should also be enjoyed. However, the question is whether that view comes close to the beauty of this Jaguar XK 140 SE Drop Head Coupe. It is your honor to experience that.
