Although the standard XK-150 did not fall short when it came to traditional Jaguar high performance, the expansion of the range with the 150s in coupe, convertible and roadster form gave Jaguar another arrow in their quiver versus the competition, especially in the U.S. market that was so important to their sales. First introduced in 1948, the Jaguar XKs caused a sensation; race car performance on the road, and with an unsurpassed level of sophistication and timeless beauty. During the XK 150 model run (May 1957 through March 1961), a significant engine modification became available, the S engine which featured changes in the head and intake manifold design. Additional changes in the design and structure of the bearings, clutch and flywheel were made in anticipation of the additional torque and wear. The identification-plate engine serial number defined the engine as delivered from the factory. Externally, the S-type models can be identified by an S placed on the passenger door beneath the quarter-window. The XK150S roadster is highly appreciated by collectors who value its combination of luxury and performance with classic XK Jaguar style.
