The Jaguar XK140 was introduced at the 1954 Earl's Court Motor Show in London. For the XK140, slight modifications were made to the original XK140, including more substantial front and rear bumpers with overriders and flashing turn signals. As with the XK120, a few of the coachbuilders of the day designed their own coachwork on the XK140. Guido Modiano commissioned Zagato to build this coupe body for his Jaguar XK140 after the car's original body was badly damaged in an accident. Upon its completion, Zagato showed the car on its stand at the 1957 Paris Auto Salon. Plans were made for Zagato to body several more Jaguars, but it is believed that he only completed one more, on an XK150 chassis.
