The Jaguar MK2 was the saloon that filled Jaguar’s line-up from 1959 to 1969, it was not just any saloon being the fastest saloon on earth for a while. The MK2 was offered in three different engine configurations depending on the customer's needs and desires. The interior maintained the same classic British luxury, was finished leather seats and high-quality wood accents. Everything was in harmony, and this harmony was strengthened by the powerful six-cylinder engine under the hood.

In the sixties, Jaguar's slogan was ‘Grace...space...pace.’ The Jaguar MK10 was responsible for ‘space’, as it was really big. The E-Type claimed ‘pace’, which was understandable as it was faster than a lightning bolt. That left ‘grace’, which the MK2 delivered in spades. Its curved smooth lines, its chrome window frames, and its spoked wheels all contributed to a harmonious whole called the Jaguar MK2.

The long and stalwart hood covers a 2483 cc, 3442 cc, or 3781 cc in-line six-cylinder engine, depending on the customer's preference, which delivered more power the larger the engine and produced 120 hp, 210 hp, or 220 hp, respectively, which was nothing to scoff at.

In 1967, Jaguar updated the MK2, or rather, discontinued it, at least by name. Production of the 3.8 stopped, the 2.4 and 3.4 continued under the respective model codes 240 and 340. The new models were cheaper, and the 240 was 13 hp more powerful and faster than before, thanks to SU carburettors that replaced the earlier Solex carburettors. The leather seats were redesigned and were now made from cheaper yet high-quality materials.

Jaguar Mark 2 3.8

For people who settled for nothing but the best and desired not only luxury but also a dose of serious horsepower, there was the 3.8 version of the Jaguar Mark 2. Equipped with a 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine delivering 220 horsepower, it exceeded expectations at its era. Proudly displayed both at the front by the Jaguar emblem and at the back on the trunk emblem was the 3.8-liter engine capacity, providing visual distinction from other models.

The 3.8 was the flagship model in the lineup; from 1959 to 1967, just over 30,000 3.8 models were sold. It remains a coveted family classic car, and given its high power output, it's a choice for those unafraid of some British old-school power.
