The Jaguar XK150 was produced between 1957 and 1961 by Jaguar Cars in Coventry. Classed as a sports car and with minimal rear seating, it came as a 2-3 seater coupe, 2-3 seater convertible or a 2 seater roadster. The standard engine was 3.4 litres but most often, the car was fitted with the SE engine which boosted the power - in keeping with the image! The XK150 differed from its predecessors in that it had a one-piece windscreen, a wider bonnet that opened down to the wings and the roadster featured a longer bonnet. Colourwise, the XK150 came in a distinctive range of different schemes during its lifetime, including Black, as modelled here. In 1961, it was superseded by the equally iconic E-Type, another of the prestige marque cars of the era .
