The medium-sized Jaguar MK. II saloon was built between 1959 and 1967 in Coventry as successors to the Jaguar 2.4 liter and 3.4-liter models manufactured between 1957 and 1959. Retrospectively, these models became known as the Jaguar Mk. I, following the introduction of the Mk. II in 1959. Adhering to Sir William Lyons’ maxim of ‘grace, pace and space’, the Jaguar Mk. II was an elegant, stylish, fast, and capable saloon. The 3.8-liter model was particularly fast with its 220bhp engine giving a standing start of 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds and to a top speed of 125mph. It was considered to be the fastest saloon of its time.
The 3.8 was similar to the one used in the 3.8 E-Types (known as the XKE in the United States), with the same block, connecting rods, pistons, and crank but its carburetor setup and inlet manifold were different.
Four-wheel disc brakes provided the stopping power and provided additional performance compared to the previous drum brake setup.
