What makes this car special?

  • Introduced in 1959, the MK2 was an evolution of Jaguar’s MK1 and featured the following updates:
    • Larger front and rear screens with larger side windows too
    • Wider track
    • Four wheel disc brakes were now standard on the MK2
  • The engine was very similar to the 3.8l E type – same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburation (two Su’s vs. three)
  • The Jaguar Mark 2 (especially the 3.8l version) was a very fast car for its time which was noted by bank robbers and was the getaway car of choice until the police ordered their own. It also had a successful competition history
  • This is a South African built example of high quality with the desirable 3.8l straight six engine and the 4 speed manual gearbox with overdrive
