The Jaguar XK140, successor to the XK120, was introduced in 1954 and sold from 1955 to 1957. Where in the construction of the XK120 the focus was mainly on speed, the XK140 was built for ease of driving and comfort with, among other things, more modern shock absorbers. Placing the engine in the XK140 about 10 centimetres further forward increased legroom and made the car suitable for taller people.

The characteristic lines have been retained with the transition from the XK120 to the XK140. Jaguar built the XK140 as a roadster (OTS, Open Two-Seater where the soft-top folds away behind the seats and the windshield can be removed), convertible (DHC, Drop Head Coupe where the soft-top remains visible when folded down) and coupé (FHC, Fixed Head Coupe).

This chic Jaguar XK140DHC (Drop Head Coupe) was produced on February 8, 1956 and delivered new by Jaguar Cars New York to the first American owner. This is one of the 2,310 original left-hand drive copies that Jaguar of the type XK 140 DHC built.

This Jaguar XK140 was imported from America to Italy and restored in 1995. Since 2011, this XK140DHC has been registered in the Netherlands and in the possession of the current owner. The sales file of this car includes invoices, (Italian) registration certificates and a Heritage Certificate. This XK was recently completely checked by a Jaguar specialist, invoices are available in our sales folder.
