The Jaguar XK 140 was produced from 1955 to 1957. This is a unique car with chassis number 814537 and it received its body at Carrozzeria Zagato near Milan in 1957. Zagato was famous for styling all its cars with aluminium bodies. Ugo Zagato had founded his coachbuilding enterprise after the First World War and he believed that weight was the enemy of the automobile. The pontoon shape of the Jaguar XK 140 coachbuilt in Italy and the headlamps integrated within the wings offereda completely different line for this car. The wrap-around bumpers are also unusual with two horizontal and cylindrical elements at front and rear. They prevented “direct contact” with the car in front when engaged in parking manoeuvres. The Jaguar made its debut at the Paris Motor Show in 1957.
This Jaguar XK140 Coupé by Zagato was entered at the 2015 Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este by William Pope from the USA.
