mécanique, elles ne souffrent pas comme la Type E de problèmes de refroidissement ; de plus, elles sont de conception simple avec un essieu arrière rigide et sont donc relativement peu coûteuses à entretenir. - The XK Roadster the most sought - Same owner since 1963 - Never restored In 1957, almost 10 years after the launch of the eldest of the family, the 120, and after the 140 with its rack and pinion steering, Jaguar unveiled the XK150 which is a car whose line is radically different from its predecessors. The car's profile is softened and the windshield is now a single curved plane as the rear window coupe. With the 150, Jaguar launches a version S of the 3.4 liter engine with cylinder head straight ports in gold painted and
fitted with three SU HD8 carburettors with the power to 250 hp against 190 hp for the base version. Bought by the father of the family in 1963, this beautiful Roadster S, the latest in production has had only two owners. It comes in beautiful condition, a nice patina bodywork and upholstery. Very valuable for the future buyer, the folder of invoices and technical controls is extremely provided all stages of its maintenance during his life. Thus we learn that the engine had been completely redone in 2008 by Carmania (Bagnolet): block and cylinder head machining, replacement connecting rods, crankshaft and pistons, valve replacement ADM and ECH, guides and seats, change to unleaded transition. Similarly, the brakes went through the hands of Carmania in 2007. It is equipped with two additional electric fans. Maintenance bills are numerous
until 2014 and she has her « Jaguar Trust Heritage » certificate! Steeped in family histories, this roadster so loved took the four children of the family and friends, for their weddings, thus the car traveling from Rotterdam to Perpignan through Bordeaux, northern France or the The Massif Central. Currently, the XK150 roadster, including S models are the most sought by collectors and the most expensive of all XK on the old car market. These are cars with a reliable engine, with a modern behavior and braking, which can be used on the roads and in the current traffic. With a correct size of radiator and a large mechanical ventilator, they do not suffer as the E-type of cooling problems; moreover, they are simple in design with a rigid rear axle and are therefore relatively inexpensive to maintain.
