This is the rare Galo Mateos XK140 as described in the Roland Urban book "Les M├ętamorphoses du Jaguar".
"It was in 1960 that Galo Mateos, a well-known Spanish coachbuilder, considered as an artist in his country, designed a body for a 1956 XK 140, chassis # S815518. Its owner, an American resident in Madrid, ordered it new but sent it inmediately to the States for the car to be tuned up.
The car returned with an extra 100 bhp and a supercharger. Due to the difficulties met in keeping the engine cool in normal operating conditions (due to the tight fit in the engine bay !), the owner decided to order a new roadster body, with quite exceptional results."

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
