Jaguar XK150 “Leaping cat” Photo Print

Here is the finest incarnation of the classic XK coupe series of Jaguar. One can feel the fine leather dashboard while observing the Jag`s leaping cat mascot. Its author is Frederick Gordon Crosby who is one of the best British motoring illustrators in the first half of the 20th century.

That's how Coventry replies to the spectacular 507 BMW sports coupes and the 300 SL Mercedes-Benz. The late '50s is a time of fierce competition and Jaguar makes a spectacular statement. XK 150 is mainly based on Jaguar XK140 but has many improvements including interior, exterior, brakes, wheels and last but not least – engine. Power outputs are between 190 and 265 hp, depending on the version. They are enough for a max speed of 217 km/h and acceleration from 0 – 100 km/h in 7.0 seconds. Pretty impressive for the late '50s.

With his period-correct camera, David Pisani captures a moment of luxury and beauty. His shot is focused on the leaping cat mascot of Jaguar XK150 and you can have it in your place too. Order it now at Simply Petrol marketplace.
