Jaguar XK150 3.4S OTS

Elegant, refined, and feline fast. When you come face to face with this Jaguar XK 150 3.4S OTS convertible, you'll be left breathless. The phenomenally streamlined design, powerful engine, and shiny wire wheels... everything is taken care of down to the smallest detail. This car is an icon of both style and performance. Completely restored, overhauled, and with matching numbers. In our opinion, undoubtedly worth being a protected species.

To look at the early childhood of this Jaguar, we must go back to 1960 when the XK 150 was produced in the English town of Coventry. Sir William Lyons, Jaguar's legendary and perfectionist chief designer, had produced a gem with this model that was ready to succeed the XK 140. Compared to its predecessors, the XK 150 was a true evolution. There were some important improvements; the wheelbase was extended, and the interior refreshed with more luxurious details and even more subtle finishes. The engine of the 3.4S variant, like this Jaguar XK 150, also received a higher compression and an improved aluminum cylinder head, which increased the power to 253 hp. This made the car much faster than its predecessors. And not just its predecessors... the XK 150 3.4s was considered one of the fastest production cars of its time.

Sir Lyons' model was available in three different body styles: the coupe (fixed head coupe), the two-door convertible (open two-seater or OTS), and the 2+2 coupe (drophead coupe). The XK 150 was incredibly well-received. In total, 9,382 Jaguar XK 150s were produced, of which 1,466 were of the OTS type. Most were exported to the United States, where they were very popular among the jet set of the 1960s. Among them too the British 'King of Cool' and often praised Bond actor Roger Moore, who swore by his XK 150. Hollywood wasn’t safe anymore...

Back to the present. After an extensive restoration process that lasted several years, this Jaguar is in amazing shape. Thanks to some revolutionary technical innovations, the XK 150 3.4S engine has always been one of the most highly regarded engines of its time, known for its reliability, flexibility, and performance. Not only does it have an aluminum cylinder head, which contributes to lower weight and better heat dissipation, but it also uses a dry-sump lubrication system (the engine oil is stored in a separate oil tank rather than in a crankcase under the engine, which provides better lubrication at high speeds and in corners). That, combined with the fact that this 3.4-liter engine has been completely overhauled by the specialists at Van Giersbergen, makes the Jag ready to rumble! And you can take that quite literally. Thanks to the unique exhaust system that was especially designed to produce a deep and powerful 'jaguar growl', you will recognize this car from miles away.

It doesn’t stop there. This Jaguar radiates from inside and out, from top to bottom. The new Maroon Red paint goes perfectly with the Dark Tan leather interior and the renewed chrome work. The dashboard, the original and restored items in the interior, the original armrests, and the dark red convertible top... everything is right. Even when you crawl under the car along the shiny spokes and Michelin Pilot X tires and look at the overhauled suspension and newly made chassis.

To top it all off, we are happy to announce that this Jaguar XK 150 3.4S OTS has 'matching numbers': the engine, body, gearbox, and chassis number all match the Heritage certificate and identification plate. The only modified feature is the newly installed 5-speed gearbox, with a modern alternator and 1-2-3 ignition. However, the car still comes with its original manual gearbox and therefore remains matching. This Jaguar is a beautiful example of a classic car that has been carefully restored while maintaining its original character.

This Jaguar has captured our hearts, but it's time to release it back into the wild. Do you want to feel as comfortable as this Jaguar soon? Then contact Peetclassics.
