The Jaguar XK140 was introduced in late 1954 and sold as a 1955 model. With the XK 140 Jaguar put the focus on creating amore confortable car, away from the harsh XK120. Exterior changes that distinguished it from the XK120 included more substantial front and rear bumpers with overrides, and flashing turn signals above the front bumper which were operated by a switch on the dash. The grille remained the same size but became a one-piece cast unit with fewer and broader vertical bars.

The Jaguar badge was incorporated into the grille surroundings. A chrome trim strip ran along the center of the bonnet and boot. The Jaguar XK140 was powered by the William Heynes designed 3.4 liter Jaguar XK double overhead camshaft inline-6 engine. This engine is rated at 193 PS which made the XK140 approximately 195 KM/h fast and the acceleration time from 0-60 miles( 97 KM/h) was approximately nine seconds.
