The MK2, also known as the Mark II, is a luxury car produced by Jaguar from 1959 to 1967 exclusively in a sedan version. The MK2 succeeded the 2.4-litre and 3.4-litre, produced from 1957 to 1959.
The MK2 was a fast, spacious and pleasant-line car defined by Sir William Lyons, founder of Jaguar "grace, peace and space", where pace was defined as brilliance.
It was offered in three different engines per displacement. The smaller engine had a displacement of 2,483 cm³ (2.4 L) and delivered 120 hp of power, the average of 3,442 cm³ (3.4 L, 210 hp) and the most powerful of 3,781 cm³ (3.8 L, 220 hp) the same used on the E-Type, but with some diversity, not least a much lower power.
The 3.8-liter version with 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive, mounts the self-locking differential as standard. Disc brakes on 4 wheels. Connolly leather interior and dashboard and doorgear luxurious. The MK2, with an engine of 3.8, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds and touches a top speed of 201 km/h. This car was an incredible commercial success for Jaguar, also for the winning move to keep the price of the base version very low. It is said that the London ring road, inhabited by the wealthy bourgeoisie of the English capital, was nicknamed the 'Jag Belt' for the large number of Jaguars that could be encountered on this important artery. A curiosity: thanks to the high performance of the three thousand versions, this Jaguar, became the favorite of the English mala, although soon, to counter this phenomenon, the MK II also came into force with the British police.
The deterrent power of these Jaguars was such that in pursuits, as soon as the criminals saw the MKII appear in the rearview mirror, they spontaneously slowed down with no chance of escape.
30,141 Jaguar MKII 3.8 were made.
