Jaguar XK150 DHC (1950)
The successor of the XK140.
"Although having a family resemblance to the XK120 and XK140, the XK150  was radically modernised. For the first time a one piece windscreen was  used and the wing line no longer dropped as much over the doors. The  bonnet was widened and opened down to the wings and on the OTS the  bulkhead was moved back to make it about 4 inches longer.
The standard engine, the same as fitted to the XK140, was the 3.4 litre  DHC Jaguar straight-6 rated at 180 bhp at 5750 rpm but most cars were  fitted with the SE engine that had a modified cylinder head with larger  exhaust valves rated at 210 bhp at 5500 rpm.” — source
