Jaguar XK 140 Drophead Coupé
To many specialists, this model is the finest vehicle Jaguar ever built. The line and the sweeping curves convey an almost erotic overall impression. Jaguar also began achieving sporting success with the XK series. All the same, in the year 1951, ’53, ’55 and ’56 won the Le Mans race with this car. Although the type designation of the XK 120 could actually also be assigned to its speeds (120 mph), this is not quite true with the XK 140, for according to the works specification it can only reach 194 and not 224 kilometres an hour.PHOTO: ORF42670 – FRÖHLICH GESCHIEDEN / P.
