HISTORY OF THE 1960 JAGUAR MARK 2 220bhp, 3,781cc double overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine, five-speed manual transmission (T5), four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Wheelbase: 187.75 Adhering to Jaguar founder William Lyons’ maxim of “grace, pace and space,” the Mk2 series set new standards of style, comfort, and, above all, performance. Presenting discerning buyers a luxurious, wood-trimmed alternative to a more conventional family car, and in a sportier package, it is rightfully known today as the worlds first sport sedan. For 1960, the 3.4 Saloon was officially renamed the Mk2 and was offered with an optional new 3.8 liter engine the same powerplant as the 1960 XK150 and the largest displacement the Mk2 would ever carry. A tachometer, limited-slip differential, four-wheel disc brakes, and four-speed transmission with overdrive were all standard. In road trim, the 220-horsepower Mk2 3.8 was capable of 125 miles per hour top speeds and zero to 60 times of just 8.5 seconds. These cars were equally impressive at long-distance racing and in 1961 broke four world records in the 35 liter class, averaging 106.58 miles per hour over 10,000 miles. The Mk2 would go on to dominate saloon car championship racing, delighting crowds at such legendary tracks as Brands Hatch, Oulton Park, Goodwood, and even the Tour de France, at which it proved victorious from 1960 to 1963. It was no wonder then that the Mk2 quickly became the preferred getaway car for London gangsters (matched in short order by the police in their stripped 3.8s) in the Swinging Sixties.
