History of the event
The Jaguar Mark 2 or MK2 (which means series two) is a Jaguar car model marketed from 1959 to 1967. Very popular in competition (tourism category), the MK2 has notably won the Tour de France automobile four times in a row in the hands of Bernard Consten. "The most beautiful car in the world", the fastest production sedan in the world"... the Mk2 is no exception. She put sport within reach of fathers' steering wheel.
The Mk2 was available in three engines: 2.4, 3.4 and 3.8 litres, with manual transmissions, with or without overdrive, or automatic, especially for the United States
Version 2.4 was an honest, unpretentious sedan with a certain softness, which was no longer the case with the 3.4. The 3.8 was the most sporty, it ran, and won, many rallies including the Tour de France auto. She also distinguished herself in Monte-Carlo, but without winning it. It was the big MkVII at the end of her career that was the only Jaguar to win this event, despite the participation of the XK120, XK140, Mk2 and Type E.
The Mk2 has brought some significant technical innovations: it was the first self-supporting hull car, i. e. without a separate chassis, of the brand. It had an independent wheel suspension at the rear and disc brakes at all four wheels. The hull and XK engine were the same for all three Mk2 models and had the same finish. The wider rear track than the Mk1's improved the car's handling.
This magnificent sedan is in superb original condition, inside and out! Owned for more than 15 years by a collector in love with his car, it has been the subject of regular maintenance and monitoring. After its last release in 2018 in Ireland, it was completely overhauled, re-braked with a change of the mastervac (very rare to find), revised clutch, electronic ignition, change of cooling hoses, change of tyres and draining of all fluids. A complete file is at the disposal of the future purchaser, it is very complete with the inheritance certificate and the fact that this car is French in origin;
it should be noted that it was stopped a few years ago before being restarted about twenty years ago. The bodywork is in excellent condition, no corrosion treads (except for a pilot light frame), and the underframes are very healthy, which is very rare for a Jaguar MK2, the jack anchors will testify to this. The paint is original and has some small impacts but nothing serious, which gives a hidden authenticity to the car that is very pleasant.
The interior is very welcoming, with its very particular leather smell, and is in its original, exceptional condition... The dashboard is irreproachable, authentic and beautiful. At the wheel, you are in the most beautiful sedan in the world, and its red carpets change you from a user to a VIP; rear passengers can enjoy a small tablet of convenience to put their reading or tea cup on it!
Mechanically, the engine is alert and the fact of having added the overdrive gives its speed, a serenity to swallow kilometers! The gearbox is not synchronized in first gear, you'll have to get used to it. The braking is new, efficient and reassuring, which is a guarantee of safety because the car is heavy.
This is the ideal car to enter the world of collection: luxury, authenticity, beauty and a very attractive price, less than 30 000 €!
