“Grace… Space… Pace… A special kind of motoring which no other car in the world can offer…”
These are the words that were used in advertising to describe probably the most famous British car from the 1960’s, the Jaguar MkII.
The Jaguar MkII 3.8 Litre model embodied classic elegance, space and speed with enough room for five adults. In its heyday, it was the fastest production car in the world.
Sitting in one today, with beautiful leather seats, highly polished walnut dashboard and door cappings and facia packed with gauges and aero style toggle switches, it is easy to see why the Jaguar MKII was such a success.
When driving a MKII with its powerful engine and distinctive induction snarl, you know you are in the presence of a very special creation!
With its 220 bhp (164 kW) engine driving the car from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 8.5 seconds and capable of reaching a top speed of 125 mph (201 km/h) on the then, speed limit free motorway. Accordingly the MKII enjoyed great success on the race track, in the newly found production saloon car series and as further endorsement of its capabilities, was driven as a road car by many racing drivers.
However, it is probably most famed as the favoured ‘blaggers’ get away car, due to its spacious boot (for the bounty), room for five and tremendous turn of speed. Rear wheel spats were removed so that if the car were rammed by a police car, the bodywork would not foul the rear wheels.
The Mark 2 is also well known as the car driven by fictional TV detective Inspector Morse played by John Thaw.
