By the late 50s Jaguar was at its height, having conquered Le Mans in 1951, 1953, 1955, 1956, and 1957. With European rivals like Porsche beginning to catch up, in 1959 the XK150S was launched as a roadster aimed squarely at the American market. At its heart was a race-bred engine featuring a straight-port cylinder head. This was matched to a competition clutch and lightened flywheel. The result was a car with a top speed of 218 km/h. Disc brakes were also fitted.

This fabulous example left the Browns Lane factory in March 1959 finished in Carmen Red with a matching red leather interior and fawn soft top, fitted with manual overdrive. It was destined for Frank Caveys dealership in Dublin and sold new the following month. Cavey had a close working relationship with Sir William Lyons assembling cars in Ireland his factorys XK120 achieved 3rd at the 1951 Monte Carlo rally. The first owner was J Goodman of Dundalk. Today the car retains its original engine and bodywork and has been restored to a gorgeous colour scheme of dark blue over beige leather. Presented in wonderful condition, it would surely be a thrill to drive and enjoy.
