This classic was restored in the 1990’s to a show level finish. It has been driven only 1400 miles since the restoration. The owner, prior to myself, owned it since 1972. When he passed, I was able to acquire the car from his estate.
It is a numbers matching car, with the venerable 3.4 liter inline six cylinder engine that was fully rebuilt during the restoration. It starts on the first turn of the key and idles perfectly. No smoke, no drama. She drives very well and shifts well – having a new clutch and a rebuilt transmission.
It features chrome wire wheels – including the spare.
The interior is in restored condition aside from vandalism done at a car show. Note in the pictures that the door panels (only) were sliced – both sides. I’ll have these panels redone before the new buyer acquires the car.
Also, I have new (wing) side view mirrors that will be installed prior to the acquisition AND new chrome bonnet trim (just arrived). There was a small ding on the old one.
The right rear turn signal has a dent – but, I ordered a new one – and will replace it.
Other than that, she shows very nicely. I’ve had a vast collection of cars and have been fond of XK’s for many years and have owned many. This coupe is – pretty. I was tempted to put white wall tires on her – but have not yet done so.
All of the chrome is in great shape, the grill is straight and very nice. The bumpers look great also, as the previous owner rechromed everything.
The odometer was reset at time of restoration. I do not know the original miles, but post restoration, it doesn’t really matter.
The tires look new with no dry rotting at all. The wire wheels are in great shape, but would benefit from a detail.
The interior leather is free of wear and tear and looks new. The wood dash was redone and looks beautiful.
The trunk compartment (boot) was restored also – and the engine compartment, although dusty now, was restored. The head is a correct light green color.
I am searching for a set of windshield wiper as the car mysteriously does not have them. Frankly, until I took the pictures, I forgot.
She is fine running car and a bit of a bargain really, as you can attend any car show and many rally events in an XK150. They are powerful and torquey and a pleasure to row through the gears.
She is ready for the new owner as I must reluctantly sell her to fund my technology company. (startups aren’t easy).
I’ve placed a best offer option on her so an astute buyer will get a great deal.

The Tax the Rich crew has a knack for indulging in automotive fantasies and capturing it all on video, such as a tug-of-war battle between two Ferrari F50s, drifting a Ferrari Enzo on gravel roads and even powersliding a Rolls-Royce Phantom on a field of wet grass. This latest video features a Jaguar XJ220 and a kid with an iPad, who somehow is able to control the old supercar with the Apple product.
No, there's no app for that (yet), and we lied - the boy isn't actually controlling the car - but it sure is nice to see the XJ220 in all its turbocharged, six-cylinder glory doing donuts and sliding across a grassy field. It jolts us to see the old Jaguar - capable of 217 miles per hour and once described by Jeremy Clarkson as having no brakes and massive turbo lag - thrown about like a rally car, but then we never imagined anybody would abuse a Rolls-Royce like that either. We'll continue to leave the high-stakes antics to Tax the Rich - we're just glad somebody had the guts to behave so badly in such a valuable machine. What else were they made for?
Be sure to check out the video below, if you have a pulse.
As it begins the rollout of the all-wheel-drive Jaguar XJ and XF models, Jaguar Land Rover has just announced that it has opened a new facility in northern Minnesota for winter testing. Located in International Falls, MN (on the US and Canadian border), the British automaker says it is one of the coldest locations in the Continental US. Jaguar's new Instinctive All Wheel Drive system was developed primarily to help sell more cars in the northern US, so it only makes sense to open a testing area in the US as well.
With temperatures that can drop to minus 55 degrees Fahrenheit, International Falls was chosen to mimic some of the worst weather a Jaguar or Land Rover will ever see. The grounds house testing chambers, various road surfaces and even a frozen lake. This new facility complements the hot-weather testing grounds in Phoenix, AZ.
The official press release is posted below.
Just a week after teasing us with the first image of the car, and mere hours before revealing it to the public at the New York Auto Show, Jaguar has pulled the wraps off of its 2014 XJR super sedan.
The British automaker has confirmed that the XJR will be kicking out a full 550-horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque from its supercharged 5.0-liter V8, affording the sedan a 0-60 mile per hour sprint of 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 174 miles per hour. A ZF eight-speed automatic transmission will still allow for respectable fuel economy, as Jag estimates ratings of 15 miles per gallon city and 23 highway.
Newly tuned dampers and stiffer spring rates, along with an electronically controlled differential should ensure that the massive power of the engine isn't wasted in transition to the road. Jaguar has also tweaked steering software and hydraulics, with the goal of increased road feel, response and overall feedback. 20-inch signature wheels carry wide Pirelli rubber (265-section up front, 295 in back) to keep the XJR planted.
