One of the best things about going to classic car shows is the chance to see very rare examples of well known marques. I was lucky to see this Jaguar XK150S 3.8 DHC at the Classic Car Show held at the NEC last month.
A very rare sight
The XK150 was introduced in 1957 and was seen as a competitor for the BMW 507 and Mercedes-Benz 300 SL. It was updated with a higher belt line and the first four wheel disc brakes fitted to any production car. About 2,600 XK150 drophead coupes were built before production ceased in 1961, with only 69 cars being the RHD 3.8 S drop heads as this one is.
This example has had four owners from new and is in Sherwood Green with a suede green interior. The current owner uses it regularly in classic car rallies.
Lovely isn't it?
