INFO NEEDED!
Ghia has allegedly produced 3 Michelotti-designed XK 140's, see http://www.coachbuild.com/2/index.php/encyclopedia/coachbuilders-models/item/ghia-jaguar-xk140-coupe. Two of them are shown in our Encyclopedia (two-tone/ex Aga Khan and the red one).
QUESTION: any info on the third car?

Also, in 2018 a 1955 Jaguar XK 140 Coupe allegedly also designed by Michelotti emerged in Belgium, see http://www.coachbuild.com/2/index.php/encyclopedia/coachbuilders-models/item/jaguar-xk140-se-michelotti-coupe-1955.
On this car there are no references visible to Ghia; the only emblem shows "M AG Torino".
QUESTION: does anybody have information on this car, and could this car actually be built by Michelotti himself?

Your help is much appreciated!

Isn't this the same car that have been posted in the Michelotti forum with the caption "X140 from 1959. Made for Brigitte Bardot. So say the caption. Can anybody confirm this?".
