1954 Jaguar XK140 Aluminium OTS

A most superb and unrepeatable XK140 built very similar to the first XK120’s with bespoke aluminium bodies this XK140 has had a full aluminium body hand crafted in Germany at vast expense, built by LARO Sportwagen and reportedly cost over €200k some 15 years ago

The car has a hand built Aluminium boot lid, bonnet, doors, & wings……

It has a whole host of upgrades to make this XK140 one of the finest driving cars in existence and a very fast road car……it weighs nothing.

The late owner was a tall Gentleman so to achieve his perfect XK140….a few years after the car was restored and rebuilt he then sent it to Stevies Garage Germany for the drivers foot well and pedal box repositioning, the complete process is on file and photographed, we have spoken to Stevie’s Garage, they knew the car well and have done so for some 15+years it cost the then owner 20k to do this modification, it now suits people who are long in the leg far better then a standard car and is probably the only XK140 in existence with such a unique feature. Personally being 6’5in I can drive this car with ease.

It is a far cry from a standard XK, looking utterly beautiful with its long louvered bonnet & going like a rocket.

Offered at a very realistic price thus XK140 will definitely take some beating in both looks and performance.
