The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium-sized saloon car built from late 1959 to 1967 by Jaguar in Coventry, England. Adhering to Sir William Lyons' maxim of "grace, pace and space", the Mark 2 was a fast and capable saloon. It came with either a 120 bhp 2,483 cc, 210 bhp 3,442 cc, or 220 bhp 3,781 cc Jaguar XK engine. The 3.8 is similar to the unit used in the 3.8 E-Type, having the same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburation.
The Mark 2 gained a reputation as a capable car among criminals and law enforcement alike; the 3.8 Litre model being particularly fast with its 220 bhp engine driving the car from 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds and to a top speed of 125 mph, with enough room for five adults. Popular as getaway cars, they were also employed by the police to patrol British motorways.
The vendor has owned this Jaguar MK2 2.4 for 35 years, and he describes the car as being in lovely condition. It is said to drive very well, and there is no known rust. There have been many parts replaced over the years but there are a few small jobs that the car would benefit from to bring it back up to scratch.
