This 1961 XK150 Roadster is a left-hand drive car and is one of just 42 XK150 Roadsters that left the factory fitted with the dual-carbureted 3.8-liter engine.

The VIN (S832142DN) indicates that it was built very near the end of XK150 production in late 1960. The 'S' prefix indentifies it as a Special Equipment model which included standard wire wheels, overdrive transmission, fog lights, and twin exhaust.

The 'DN' suffix indicates a Laycock de Normanville overdrive was fitted.
