Better known among enthusiasts by the more concise designation MK II, the Jaguar Mark II took up the legacy of the earlier 2.4 and 3.4 Litre in 1959, remaining in production until 1967. This luxury four-door saloon takes up the elegant bodywork of its ancestors, but it's more modern and much more sporty. The main differences compared to the previous models are larger windows; slimmer and chrome-plated door pillars; newly designed rear fenders and tail; wider windshield and rear window; new circular secondary front light clusters; freshly designed front grille. The interior is also revised with a new dashboard, new instrumentation and seats with a unique shape. Three engines are available (all straight-six and Jaguar XK-derived): a 120-hp 2.4, a 210-hp 3.4 and, at the top of the range, a 220-hp 3.8. The most powerful unit, capable of pushing this car over the 200 km/h threshold, is closely related to the six-cylinder in the Jaguar E Type, with which it shares the cylinder block, crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons.
