In total, 2,672 XK150 Drophead Coupes were produced, while the most popular body style of the time was the Fixed Head Coupe with approximately 4,445 models having been released. A variety of colors were also available to buyers of the time including Red, Pearl Grey, Mist Grey, British Racing Green, Sherwood Green, Indigo Blue, Claret and White. The 1958 XK150 was able to blend stunning curvature with power to become one of the most desired sports cars of the 1950’s, yet was reasonably affordable when compared to the Ferraris and Mercedes Benz of the day.
