1058 Jaguar XK150S Roadster

Spotted in New  York is a 1958 Jaguar XK150S Roadster for $89,500 USD.  The Jaguar XK150S  is a British sports car built by Jaguar between 1957 and 1962.  It was the successor to the XK140 model.   These are such beautiful cars but I haven’t had the pleasure of driving one yet.  This is a numbers matching  example that has been under the same ownership since 1963.   It is red with red interior and would make a great restoration project for any enthusiast.

Does this XK150S use the 3.4 Liter Engine with Triple SU Carburettors?  Post your comments!
