Known History

The Jaguar MKII is the most characteristic Jaguar "Sport-sedan" in history. Almost everybody knows and recognizes the car as a Jaguar.

 

The MKII was a car with two faces: on the one hand, it was a very fast sport-sedan, which made the car favorite of British crooks as well as the police (a fact which was made full use of in many films and television series; think of Get Carter –1970-, featuring Michael Caine, and more recently, Inspector Morse). On the other hand, it was a very comfortable acceptable business car in which the ‘upper class’ would happily present themselves.

 

The MKII derived its power and speed from the famous Jaguar XK engine with which Jaguar had been able to win in Le Mans in 1951 and in 1953 (3.4-litre version). The XK engine in the MKII was available in three different cylinder capacities, namely 2483 cc/120 horsepower, 3442 cc/190 horsepower and 3781cc/220 horsepower respectively. The 3.8 version had a top speed of no less than 120.5 miles per hour (about 201 km/h). The Jaguar MKII was built until 1967.

 

Nowadays, the Jaguar MKII is a very popular classic. The MKII is very suitable for daily (business) use and will give the lucky owner much driving pleasure as well as a distinct image concerning the choice of car...
