The XK150 was a luxury sports car produced by Jaguar between 1957 and 1961. Initially it was available in two versions, as a Coupé and a convertible.
The first was known with the acronym FHC (Fixed Head Coupé), while the second was DHC (Drop Head Coupé). The roadster version (OTS, Open Two Seats) was launched in 1958. The XK1520 belonged to the family of cars that included the XK120 and the XK140.
Because of this it is quite similar to the other models, even though it went through a strong modernization process. The engine was fitted as a six-cylinder dual overhead cam head from 3,442 cc engine dis-placement, with 193 horsepower. They first came with 205 mm Dunlop disk brakes on all four wheels.
