PostHeaderIcon Jaguar XK 150 S 3.8 Drophead Coupe

The Jaguar XK 150 was the final evolution of the original XK launched in 1949 and, as such, it was the most refined and the most powerful of them all. The S version came with a 3.8-liter engine from the Mark IX that developed 265-horsepower, impressive for the year 1960.

Just like its predecessor, the XK 140, the XK 150 was larger than the original XK 120, but it received some aesthetic improvements to make it look more modern. It originally came with the 3.4-liter DOHC inline-6 XK engine which developed 182 horsepower thanks to the updated cylinder head. The first XK 150s were sold in FHC (fixed-head coupe) specification with the drophead coupes arriving in 1958.

The XK 150 was kept in production until the end of 1960 when the final XK 150s were built for the 1961 model year. The following March, the E-Type was announced, and we all know how that went. But the appearance of the E-Type does not diminish the importance of the XK 120, and its XK 140 and XK 150 brethren, and the fact that now there’s an increasing market for these lush sports tourers.

PostHeaderIcon Jaguar Scraps Plan To Develop XK Successor

Raise a toast for the Jaguar XK, people. The model’s lineage has officially been taken to the graveyard after Jaguar scrapped plans for a successor to the XK name out of concern that such a model would impede the growth and volume of the F-Type SVR.

Jaguar Land Rover North America CEO Joe Eberhart made the declaration to Car & Driver, saying that building a flagship coupe, the spot once occupied by the XK, isn’t a part of Jaguar’s plans anymore. According to Eberhart, Jaguar came to that decision after determining the F-Type SVR already fits into that category and having another model share in that space doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.

Eberhart’s explanation makes sense considering that the F-Type SVR already has the technological tools and performance capabilities of a flagship sports coupe. More importantly, the F-Type SVR’s $125,950 price tag is already steep enough that introducing another sports coupe in the same price range would only lead to the two models cannibalizing each other’s sales volume.

It could work under different circumstances, but since Jaguar is determined to double its sales volume this year, the margin for error is extremely thin and the company can’t afford to take too many risks that could be deemed unnecessary. It would’ve been nice to see the XK, or at least its successor, return after getting phased out in 2014, but such as it is in the auto industry.

Companies need to make compromises and understand the bigger picture of what they’re trying to accomplish. In Jaguar’s case, a successor to the XK would’ve been exciting from a buzz point of view. From a business perspective however, it just doesn’t make sense now that the F-Type SVR has effectively occupied its old spot in the lineup.

PostHeaderIcon Jay Leno Has Fun In A 1951 Jaguar XK 120 Hot Rod: Video

Jay Leno loves a good Jaguar XK, and there plenty scattered around his glorious garage. When it comes to restoring these historic machines and keeping them in top condition, Jay turns to Jason Len, one of the most respected XK restorers in the world. But this video isn’t about one of Jay’s cars, rather its about a car that belongs to Jason Len. See, when you spend your life working on restoring the same cars to the same factory condition over and over, you get a little tired of the monotony. To break up this never-ending stream of cars, Jason decided to create a one-off custom XK that is unlike any other on the road.

What started life as a 1951 Jaguar XK 120 has been converted into a custom speedster with a modified engine from an E-Type, custom bodywork and killer side-exit exhaust outlets molded into the front fender. Underneath is a custom tube-frame and a modern manual transmission, and the engine is fed from a race-spec fuel cell in the back. Most of the video is dedicated to a close in-shop look at the car and all of the modifications, but toward the end Jay finally takes it for a spin and it is glorious. The sound quality is a bit rough thanks to the wind noise, but hearing that straight-six engine bellow and howl as Jay drives around is the best. This is a rolling piece of modern art with a classic twist and a great noise. Press play and enjoy this great one-of-a-kind machine.
