The Jaguar XK140 SE Roadster we are offering here is chassis S811180. The car left the works on 18 March 1955 before it was dispatched on 4 April to the US market. As a factory left hand drive example, this car was originally black with grey, red-piped leather interior. Supplied new in Honburg in the Los Angeles area, S811180 will remain in the United-States for the next couple of decades before being re-imported in Europe during the mid-80s.
In 1989 the car was briefly registered for a year in the Paris area before it was acquired by Philippe Lauriat in 1990, another Paris-based enthusiast. At that time it was decided to take S811180 down to bare metal and perform a ground-up restoration by marque specialist Harper, of which most invoices and photography documentation are still available in the file.
At the same time Mr Lauriat decided to have the car repainted in very dark green with beige hide trim, a livery which the car still remains with today.
In 2000, S811180 was acquired by its current owner who had the car maintained continously and regardless of costs during nearly 20 years ! Today S811180 benefits of a thorough mechanical maintenance and is ready for immediate enjoyment.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
