This bright XK is the product of a decade-long restoration that cost about $136K total and comes complete with all the receipts. Only 800 miles have been put on the car since its completion, and it has been handled with the utmost care.

A cream white exterior has the feel of porcelain, and it features a contrasting red cockpit with genuine leather that complements it perfectly. A snug-fitting top can be put up to protect the driver from the elements. Although, this car may never see any elements if it ends up in a collection. The interior features Smiths gauges, and a trunk complete with a jack, full-size spare, and knock-off hub mallet. Stylish color-matching white wire wheels add to the cars classy ambiance and also help with brake cooling.

The heart of the car is a 3.4-liter inline six cylinder tucked inside the slim engine bay, and it is believed to be original to the car. Glance at the Type-C tag on the polished head that is telltale sign that this car has 210 horsepower, a bump from the 190 horsepower given to those without. A four-speed manual transmission shifts things into place, and a race-inspired front suspension keeps everything handling beautifully. 

Included with the sale of the car are Jaguar Heritage Trust paperwork, restoration photos, car cover, and receipts that detail the amount of money invested in its restoration. In fact, the cost of the car is close to the money spent to make this perfect Roadster what it is today. This perfect Jaguar Roadster is a turn-key classic ready to turn heads no matter where it goes. This car is listed at $149,999, so feel free to make an offer here to bring it to your garage!
