Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this stunning 1957 Jaguar XK140 Roadster. Following hot on the heels of Jaguars sensational XK120, the XK140 debuted in 1955 featuring several improvements designed to address customer complaints with the 120. Thankfully, Jaguar was able to retain the arresting good looks of the original design, while allowing for more room and better-balanced handling. The XK140s larger full-width bumpers and thin chrome strips on the bonnet and boot lids were the first giveaways, however, the most significant changes came under the skin, with major improvements made to the handling and braking. A more precise rack and pinion steering system replaced the 120s worm-and-sector steering box, and the old-style lever-action dampers were ditched in favor of modern telescopic dampers. The four-wheel drum brakes were improved with new lining materials and an upgraded master cylinder. As with the XK120, customers could choose between a fixed-head coupe (now with a pair of tiny back seats), a luxurious drophead coupe, or the sporty and sparse open two-seat roadster. The standard XK140 now featured the 190-horsepower engine from the XK120 SE, with the option of upwards of 210 horsepower available with the SE package and C-Type high-flow cylinder head. The XK140 was only in production for a short period before the heavily revised XK150 replaced it. As a result, fewer than 9,000 were built between October 1954 and January 1957, making it the rarest of all three variants of the XK. Todays collectors appreciate the XK140 since it retains the pure beauty of the XK120 while offering superior on-road ability and comfort. This gorgeous 50s two-seater embodies all of what it means to be a true European roadster. Its Bright Blue finish pairs amazingly well with the Saddle Brown leather interior speaks to its class as well. The curves on this Jag will have any car enthusiast drooling. Powering this sport luxury vehicle is a 3.4L double overhead cam, inline 6-cylinder engine that produced a very pleasing amount of power for its time. These cars make great weekend cruisers and they are an absolute blast to drive. Stand out at your local car show with one of these rare classic beauties. They are becoming harder and harder to find in this condition. Do not miss you chance to own one! Call us today.
