AUCTION RESULTS: Car was Sold at a price of $113,300

250bhp, 3,442 cc dual overhead cam inline six-cylinder engine with three SU carburetors, four-speed manual transmission with overdrive, independent front suspension, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 102"

All told, 1,466 examples of the XK 150S were produced until 1961, of which less than 1,000 were Open Two Seaters. In fact, the Jaguar on offer is one of just 361 left-hand drive XK 150S cars assembled and, according to the vendor, was previously owned by a former owner of the New York Daily News. It was eventually acquired by Mr. Nicolas Juncadella of New York and Florida; a Ferrari, Porsche and Jaguar collector who noticed the car during the purchase of a farm he acquired in Stanfordville, New York – and then insisted that it become part of the overall transaction.

The car was recently serviced by Donovan Jaguar of Lenox, Massachusetts and subsequently acquired by the vendor. It benefits from an older but very correct restoration, and has accumulated less than 1,000 miles since, remaining in exceptional condition throughout. A straight, no-nonsense example, the car is finished in red with a black cloth top, interior and carpeting and is equipped with the aforementioned four-speed gearbox and chrome wire wheels. What’s more, it is complete with its original spare, tools and factory jack. Well serviced, its condition and drivability reportedly speak for themselves.

While the original XK 120 was a tremendously capable sports car, for many enthusiasts the XK 150 represents the ultimate and most refined iteration of the series. Of course, the XK 150S remains unquestionably a most desirable specification and with a 250-horsepower twin-cam six-cylinder engine it offers the enthusiast the performance to complement the timeless design so emblematic of Jaguar’s XK roadsters.
