Walking along Dovehouse St this evening, I heard a glorious, rumbly growl coming from the King's Road, at least 100 yards away. I looked up but couldn't see anything. Then, a couple of seconds later, I saw the umistakealble silhouette of a dark-coloured XK150 in the distance as it passed the end of Dovehouse St. Definitely a car that you hear before you see it... It occured to me that it must have been the same one that I'd added to my Spotted in London thread after seeing it parked in Marylebone last week (below). This was confirmed about half an hour later when I saw (and heard ) it again, this time turning into Knaresborough Place. I've no idea what has been done to the engine, but I doubt it's still the same 3.8 litre straight six that it had back in 2003, when it was auctioned by BCA with an estimate of less than £15000. Perhaps the XKMotorsports.com badge on the bootlid is a clue to its having been seriously fettled (and, it seems, restored) since.
