Bill Steele: It was Peter Ingram who initially gave the UK registration OTS 999 back in 2012. However, I don't think this can be correct; the original distributor for the vehicle was Rossleigh, Edinburgh (source David Bentley, XK Gazette May 2000). The registration letters OT were issued in Portsmouth, so I think it unlikely that this vehicle was originally registered OTS 999.
David Bentley is a very knowledgeable source of information on all things XK; David, do you have any additional info?

Sorry, I've just realised my mistake! OTS 999 is a TS district code which is Dundee, not an OT district code. So this vehicle could have been originally registered OTS 999. I'm sorry for the error.
