In 1957, almost 10 years after the launch of the eldest in the family, the 120, Jaguar unveiled the XK 150 which was a radically different car from its predecessors.

The lines of the car were softened and the windshield was now in a single bulging plane.

Mechanically, the biggest difference was the introduction of disc brakes.

The engine was still the 3.4 L of 190 Cv.

First launched in FHC and DHC, the 150 saw the arrival of a roadster in 1958.
