MB1094 : 1956 Jaguar XK140 Roadster
|Matchbox Catalog Entry:
Another classic enters the 2021 basic range at #84 and in steel blue it really looks nice. At first I wasn’t too sure about the chosen wheels as I quite like the traditional wire wheels of the real thing and thought the double 10 spoke wheels used on previous versions represented this well, but the more I look at the ringed disc wheels the more I think they do actually suit the car and are what I would think are a good period correct example.
Again we see some great detail on the headlights and grille courtesy of the vastly improved tampo process and on the read the ‘Jaguar’ license plate is a nice touch as well.
