Due to the many technical innovations, which have been gained in motorsport but also from the experience with the previous model, it is time to bring a successor model to the market after six successful years of production. 1954 at the London Motor Show on Earls Court, it is time again, Jaguar presents the XK140. The result surprises only a few, what one wants to change in terms of appearance, especially the optics were already part of the success concept with the predecessor. With the chassis and the body, everything with its elegantly curved sideline stays the same. The export, especially to America, continues even after 6 years and so one corresponds to the customer's desire for more Chrome, which is very popular in the 50's. It comes with large, one-piece bumpers, trims and only 7 wide, instead of the 13 narrow longitudinal struts in the radiator grille. In the future, a Jaguar emblem will be emblazoned on the trunk, reminiscent of the victories at Le Mans. Even today, many years later, it will be said that this decision was a great admission to the market. Due to the further development of the engine, driven by commitment in motorsport, the driver is now pleased with 190 horsepower. The sport version (SE version) is equipped with the new cylinder heads of the XK120C short C-Type, which increases the horsepower to 210. The removal of the battery and the installation of the engine block by 76mm forward provides additional space in the interior. Thanks to the won space, a Laycock de Normanville Overdrive is now also available, as well as a three-speed automatic transmission from the company Borg-Warner for coupé and convertible from October 1956. The model variants remain unchanged. There is also an "Open Two Seater" (Roadster), a "Fixed Head Coupé", as well as a "Drop Head Coupé" (Cabrio). The production time of the XK140 will take just over two and a half years.
