    This is Jaguar XK150 S with a Bertone Coupe body designed by Franco Scaglione. Only three units were made. The slim tail and imposing front view are joined by smooth full wings. Close up the lateral ridges recall the styling of the Maserati 3500 GT. This was a car inspired by the style of the English aristocracy, with their love of luxury and speed, without ignoring the influence of the American school of design.The B.A.T. experiments were to make their presence felt in successive years too. Alongside the Aston Martin DB2/4 and the Maserati 3500 GT, the same year saw the unveiling of a Jaguar-based prototype, the XK 150. As in the case of the other experimental models, the English number also stood out for its sporty personality and simple, tight styling. The slim tail and imposing front view which conceals a powerful Jaguar engine are joined by smooth full wings. Close up the lateral ridges recall the styling of the Maserati 3500 GT.

  5. I hate that front end.
     
  6. If I did'nt know that it was a jaguar, I would've sworn it was an alfa romeo, especially from the view of the front.
     
  7. the midle grill is definitely jaguar.
     
  8. #$%# ya american influents
     
  9. Exactly. Looks bit like Lambo 350. Lambo 350 design was totally extraordinary. After all it was designed to challenge Ferrari sports cars in the arena.
