For sale Jaguar XK150 S 3.4 roadster in the original colour Cotswold Blue with a gray leather interior, built on June 30, 1958 and then shipped on July 17, 1958 to America where the first owner lived in San Carlos, California. There is a Heritage certificate present. The present engine is not the original one but a Jaguar 3.4 liter engine with the original HD8 SU carburetors.

In May 1957, Jaguar introduced its new model the XK150 in two versions, the Fixed Head Coupe and the Droped head Coupe, both replacing the XK140 series. The Roadster (OTS Open Two Seater) came on the market in March 1958.

All models used the XK140 chassis but with a much more modern body and it had a curved one-piece windshield for the first time. The interior was also modified in such a way that the walnut veneer was replaced by leather upholstery. Mechanically there were also important changes, mounted were 4 Dunlop disk brakes and a brake servo, this in contrast to the drum brakes of the XK140.

The 3.4 litre engine was also further tuned and the SE specification with two carburetors delivered 190HP, there was also an S version available with 3 carburettors with a power of 250HP. This power was achieved by a new design of the cylinder head with straight ports. In 1959 a 3.8 litre engine became available with 220 HP in the standard form and 265 HP in the “S” version. The production of all XK150 models ended in 1961.

Between 1958 and 1961 a total of 9,382 XK150 models were built, of which 1,466 were equipped with an S specification. Of these, 888 were delivered in the OTS / roadster version.
