This work provides vital information on all XK120, XK140 and XK150 models - one of the most sought-after and cherished ranges of classic Jaguar performance cars. Responding to many requests from Jaguar enthusiasts and specialist motoring booksellers, MRP is bringing back into print - in a new softcover edition - one of the most successful books previously published in the company's Collector's Guide range. More than 30,000 examples of the three series of XK open tourers, convertibles and coupes were manufactured over a period of 11 years, and the majority which have survived have become highly collectable classics by discerning enthusiasts, who recognize their significance within the total Jaguar performance-car legend. For it was the original XK120, introduced to a car-starved world in the aftermath of the World War II, which earned for Jaguar its biggest ever headlines and steered the company to brilliant success, not only in the international marketplace, but also on the race tracks of the world, where Jaguar's competition record was capped by five victories at Le Mans by the XK series racing derivatives, the famous C-type and D-type sports cars. The author, renowned as one of the world's leading Jaguar experts, describes in turn each model's design, development and production history and their competition careers, and offers valuable purchasing and ownership advice, including spare parts sources. In a series of appendices he lists technical specifications, model identification numbers and engineering changes by model, date and number as well as original colour finishes, production numbers and performance figures. The result is a book packed full of useful information for prospective buyers and owners of an XK Jaguar and provides an enjoyable read for anyone wishing to recall the achievements of this remarkable range of performance cars.
