![CDATA[
In 1954, the XK120 was superseded by the mechanically updated XK140 fitted with the more powerful 190bhp XK engine which had been used in the Special Equipment 120's. The new models were visually similar to their predecessors differing in external details only. Overdrive was now an optional extra and the car could be ordered with a C-Type head in which case power output was increased to 210bhp. The price of the roadster, all but a handful of which were exported, was now £1,127.
This beautiful example is the 89th of a total of 480 right hand drive versions built by the world famous Coventry manufacturer. Built in April 1955, this XK140 presents immaculately in its original colour combination of British Racing Green with a green interior and a Mick Turley black mohair hood. The Jaguar Heritage Certificate, which is present in the file, confirms that this matching numbers example is fitted with manual transmission and features the all important overdrive. The stunning period looks of this Jaguar are maintained with the vehicles concept disc wheels and rear spats. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document, a comprehensive history file and original buff logbook, this XK140 also retains its original registration number. With only 215 of the original right hand drive examples remaining, RJJ 154 is a rare opportunity to acquire a piece of motoring history.]]
