    Auction description:
    Nurburgring Date: 8th August 2015

    Estimate: €150,000 - €200,000
    Registration Number: EU Taxes Paid
    Chassis Number: A818030

    Manufactured on the 19th October 1955 this fine example is described by the vendor as being untouched and unrestored example, boasting its original matching numbers engine and original colour scheme of Pastel Blue with its original red hide interior, which is reported to be in good condition. The car has not been modified in any way and comes complete with its sought after original tools. All electrical systems work without any faults and everything works very well with the engine and transmission described as being excellent. Showing a fine patina throughout, this condition is extremely rare, and the vehicle is all the more desirable because of it.

    Supplied with a Heritage certificate, this iconic British sports car is as exciting to drive today as it was in the 1950s, and still turns heads.

    To be auctioned on Wednesday, February 3, 2016

    Offered in unrestored condition; matching-numbers engine and gearbox
    Original paint, interior, and toolkit
    Just two registered owners from new

    The XK 140 offered here is a highly original example of the desirable drophead variant. Delivered to its first owner, Eugene Ferrand, in the US in 1955, it was originally finished in the tasteful pastel blue with red leather combination. Mr Ferrand would go on to own the car for an incredible 46 years. Over its life, this XK 140 has been subject to on-going maintenance, negating the need for a full restoration. It is presented in its original paint and interior, as well as with its tool roll, and is a fully matching-numbers example throughout, retaining all of its original major mechanical components. The Jaguar is also offered with a recent German TÜV certificate and is currently registered in Germany.

    With only 72,000 miles from new and just two registered owners in its lifetime, this highly original XK 140, complete with Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, is an excellent entry into the world of Jaguar's most beautiful roadsters.

    The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

    What disease did Lucas succumb to?
