L'une des voitures les plus facilement reconnaissables des années 1960, grâce à ses innombrables apparitions dans des films à la télévision, la berline Mark 2, modèle-phare de Jaguar, a fixé les nouvelles normes de sa catégorie tout au long de sa carrière et reste encore aujourd'hui très prisée des passionnés. Avec l'avènement de la Mark 2 en octobre 1959, la version 3, 8 litres du six cylindres XK à double arbres à cames de Jaguar était proposé pour la première fois chez Jaguar sur une berline de milieu de gamme qui, en configuration 3, 8 litres, avec boîte manuelle et overdrive, devenait une berline capable d'atteindre un authentique 200 km/h et les 100 km/h en 8, 5 secondes, des chiffres éblouissants pour une berline de cette taille encore aujourd'hui. Avec 220 ch sous le pied et un couple de 33, 1 mkg dès 3 000 tr/min, la 3, 8 litres était à peine moins rapide avec la transmission automatique Borg-Warner proposée en option, atteignant les 100 miles à l'heure à peine trois secondes plus tard que la version manuelle, jusqu'à la vitesse maximale de 193 km/h. Il n'est pas surprenant que la 3, 8 litres automatique ait été un choix de plus en plus populaire, particulièrement en Amérique du nord.

Cette Mark 2 à transmission automatique a été livrée neuve au Canada et a passé la majeure partie de sa vie en Californie par la suite, avant de revenir en Europe en 2013. Elle a bénéficié d'importants travaux de rénovation, le moteur ayant été refait en 2013, la partie avant du châssis remplacée en 2014 et la peinture refaite la même année. Décrite par le vendeur comme étant en bon état général, la voiture est vendue avec un dossier historique, son certificat Heritage, le manuel d'origine, son certificat d'immatriculation UK V5C et un MoT valide.

1960 Jaguar Mark II 3.8-Litre Saloon
Chassis no. 210572BW

•Delivered new to Canada
•Long-term resident of California
•Automatic transmission
•Recent extensive refurbishment
•Registered in the UK

One of the most readily recognised cars of the 1960s thanks in part to countless appearances in films and on television, Jaguar's seminal Mark 2 saloon set the standard for the class throughout its entire production life and today remains highly prized by enthusiasts. With the advent of the Mark 2 in October 1959, the 3.8-litre version of Jaguar's XK twin-cam six became available for the first time in the company's medium-sized saloon, which in 3.8-litre, manual/overdrive configuration was a genuine 125mph car capable of reaching 60mph in 8.5 seconds, outstanding figures for a saloon of its size even by today's standards. With 220bhp on tap and a whopping 240lb/ft of torque available at a lowly 3,000rpm, the '3.8' was only marginally slower when fitted with the optional Borg-Warner automatic transmission, reaching the 'ton' a mere three seconds adrift of its manual sibling on the way to a top speed of over 120mph. It is hardly surprising that the '3.8' in automatic configuration was an increasingly popular choice, particularly in the North American market.

This automatic-transmission Mark 2 was delivered new to Canada and subsequently spent mots of its life in California before coming to Europe in 2013. It benefits from considerable subsequent refurbishment: the engine being rebuilt in 2013, the chassis front section being replaced in 2014, and a re-spray carried out that same year. Described by the vendor as in generally good condition, the car is offered with a history file, Heritage Certificate, original handbook, UK V5C Registration Certificate, and a valid MoT.
