This is a Jaguar XK150 S with a Bertone Coupe body designed by Franco Scaglione. Only three units were made. The slim tail and imposing front view are joined by smooth full wings. Close up the lateral ridges recall the styling of the Maserati 3500 GT. This was a car inspired by the style of the English aristocracy, with their love of luxury and speed, without ignoring the influence of the American school of design.
The red car resides in a nice collection in The Netherlands, but we do not know what happened to the other two.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
