The 1957 Jaguar XK140 had a lot to live up to when compared to its world-renowned predecessor the Jaguar XK120. While the car was very similar visually, there were a few notable differences between the two models. Not only were the bumpers larger, but the XK140 also had a heavier cast grille. Providing additional protection to drivers, many critics of the day did not care for the changes, as they thought it took away some of the cars grace. The Jaguar XK140 also had increased power over the XK120; offering a 3.4-litre, twin cam engine. These additions gave the 1957 XK140 more than 190 horsepower in the base model. Buyers also enjoyed new rack and pinion steering, which was said to improve handling substantially.
