AUTOSPORT June17th 1960 – John Bolster test drives the new 3.8 Jaguar XK150 ‘S
“It then became apparent that the 3.8-litre engine is in a different world from the 3.4-litre. Lets face it, the 3.4-litre Jaguar is a tremendous car, but the 3.8-litre has that extra torque just where it matters most. For example the acceleration from 100-120 mph is substantially noticeable from 80-100 mph and then continues to surge forward even after the overdrive has been engaged at 115 mph”
