Jaguar unveiled the XK 140 in 1954 as a successor to the XK 120 and as their top-of-the-line convertible. The XK 140 brought several enhancements to the table, such as roomier interiors, better braking systems, rack-and-pinion steering, and telescopic shock absorbers, which replaced the earlier lever-arm setup.
These improvements made the car a hit and it sold nearly 9,000 units during its three-year production run. The XK 140 remains a highly desirable collectible car even today.
