1955 Boano Loewy Jaguar XK 140 Coupe

This extravagant one-off Jaguar XK 140 was designed by the renowned 
American Industrial Designer Raymond Loewy and manufactured by Italian coachbuilder Boano. 
The car was first shown at the 1955 Paris Salon. In 1957, he was persuaded to sell the car 
to Archie Moore, then the light heavyweight champ. 
Unfortunately, it was destroyed in a fire later that year. (
