  • The XK140 was introduced as a 1955 model in late 1954. Like its predecessor, the XK140 nomenclature referenced the vehicle's top speed of 140 miles per hour. Improvements over the XK120 were evident everywhere and included improved braking, suspension and steering. Customers appreciated the increase in interior space, while sporting drivers were quite fond of the retuned 3.4 litre XK engine, which was now good for 190 horsepower. The XK140’s most coveted option was the “Special Equipment” package. Referred to as the “SE” model in England or the “MC” model in the United States, this performance group offered the standard XK140 engine block with upgraded C-type cylinder heads for better flow, improved carburation, stronger suspension, and dual exhaust. These improvements raised the power output from 190 to 210 horsepower as drivers hailed that the XK140MC was one of the finest sports cars of its era.

    The 1955 Jaguar XK140MC Roadster featured here is finished in stunning Carmen Red with a beautiful red and biscuit leather interior. This beautiful Open Two Seater was previously the subject of an extensive body-off frame restoration and recently received some cosmetic refinishing to bring it back to show-worthy standards. An incredible array of documentation accompanies this motorcar, with registration paperwork from the 1960’s, service and parts invoices, a Jaguar Heritage Certificate, period advertisement, tool kit and more. A stunning classic Jaguar Roadster that is still powered by its numbers matching MC specification engine, this XK140 is ready for years of enjoyment at car events and would be the perfect example to participate in a vintage rally or tour. We are proud to offer this Jaguar XK140MC Roadster to the most particular collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates the rarity of this classic British sports car.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
