Description:

The Jaguar Mk.II was a medium size saloon built from 1959 to 1967 as a successor to the 2.4 and 3.4 models, manufactured between 1957 and 1959. The Mk.II was handsome, powerful and a good handling saloon which was offered with a choice of three six-cylinder twin cam engines, 2.4, 3.4 or 3.8 litre. The 3.8 unit used for the Mk.II was similar to the 3.8 E-type unit having the same block, crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburetion, twin SU''s instead of three on the European specification E-Type with 30bhp less as a result. The head of the six cylinder engine in the Mk.II had curved ports compared to the straight ports of the E-Type.The Mk.II 3.8 litre is a quick car even by today''s standards. The engine produced 220bhp and was capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds and could reach a top speed of 125mph. Therefore, when the car was new, it was unquestionably one of, if not the fastest saloon car on the planet.The Mk.II has enjoyed great success on track and can still be a very competitive historic race car. Campaigned by all the top drivers of the day including Graham Hill, Roy Salvadori and Michael Parkes, the Mk.II scored victories throughout saloon car races in the sixties and was also raced across Europe in the Tour De France and Monte Carlo rally. Furthermore, Mk.IIs gained an infamous reputation as a capable ‘getaway car'' among the criminal underworld and the police also used them as motorway patrol cars. These capable and robust Jaguars had seating for five adults and in 3.8Litre specification could outrun almost any other car on the road.This car was originally manufactured in December of 1963 and sold to its first owner in Italy in 1964 and was registered in a small village close to Milan. We don''t know the early history of the car but for most of the 1990''s it was registered to an Italian resident in Monaco. The car has been comprehensively restored and presents beautifully. Still in its factory supplied colour scheme of gun metallic grey with a contrasting red leather interior, the car drives particularly well.Price£39,950
