1955 Jaguar XK 140 SE Roadster For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 21 September 2019. Estimate:€80,000 - €100,000 Desirable SE variantAttractive blue-over-red colour scheme Reinventing the Jaguar brand in the post-war era, the XK 120 solidified the marque’s place in sports car history, and that car’s successor certainly had a tough act to follow. Introduced in 1955, the XK 140 was redesigned with larger torsion bars, better brakes, and rack-and-pinion steering. The engine had higher-lift camshafts, resulting in increased horsepower, which was now rated at 190. There were also some modest appearance changes, as the grille now had fewer bars that were spaced farther apart, the bumpers were made to full width, and flashing directional signals were located in the front wings just above the bumper.Differentiated from its C-Type-head-equipped brethren by the ‘A’ in its chassis number, this Jaguar XK 140 SE boasts the crankshaft dampener, wire wheels, dual exhaust, twin fog lamps, and windshield washers as delivered by the factory in the SE (or ‘M’ for North American specification) package. Presently, it sports an attractive blue-over-red colour scheme from an older restoration and is an ideal driver-quality car. Undoubtedly the most desirable body style for the XK 140, this is a charming Jaguar that has everything one could want in a British sports car—sophistication, performance, and timeless style. Desejada versão SESedutora combinação de azul com interior vermelhoReinventando a marca Jaguar no pós-Guerra, o XK120 consolidou o lugar do construtor na história dos automóveis desportivos, tornando a vida muito difícil aos seus sucessores. Apresentado em 1955, o XK 140 foi redesenhado com barras de torção maiores, pneus melhorados e direção por pinhão e cremalheira. O motor tinha uma árvore de cames que permitia maior abertura das válvulas, o que aumentou a potência para 190 cv. Havia também algumas tímidas alterações estéticas, com a grelha a apresentar menos barras, que tinham mais espaço entre elas. Os piscas estavam localizados nos guarda-lamas dianteiros, mesmo por cima dos pára-choques, que ocupavam agora toda a largura do XK 140.Distinguindo-se dos seus irmãos que estavam equipados com a cabeça C-Type pelo “A” no seu número de chassis, este Jaguar XK 140 SE tem, como equipamento de fábrica incluído no pack SE, um amortecedor da cambota, rodas de raios, escape duplo, dois faróis de nevoeiro e jatos de água para limpar o pára-brisas. Nos Estados Unidos, esta especificação era designada pela letra “M”. Atualmente apresenta-se numa atraente combinação de azul com interior vermelho, aplicados num restauro mais antigo, que o torna um excelente exemplar para conduzir.Inquestionavelmente, a mais desejada carroçaria para o XK 140, este é um charmoso Jaguar, com tudo aquilo que se pode desejar num desportivo britânico — sofisticação, desempenho e estilo intemporal.Please note that this car retains its original engine block, however the cylinder head was originally fitted to a different Jaguar XK.Por favor tenha em atenção que este motor mantém o bloco de motor original. No entanto, a sua cabeça estava inicialmente montada num XK diferente. To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at - details above.
