The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium-sized saloon car built from late 1959 to 1967 by Jaguar in Coventry. England. Twelve months before the announcement of the XJ6 the 2. 4L and 3. 4L Mark 2 models were renamed to Jaguar 240 and Jaguar 340 respectively. The previous Jaguar 2. 4L and 3. 4L models made between 1955 and 1959 have been identified as Mark 1 Jaguars since Jaguar produced this Mark 2 model.
Until the XJ. Jaguar's postwar saloons were usually denoted by Roman numerals (e. g. Mark VII. Mark VIII) while the Mark 2 used Arabic Numerals. denoted on the rear of the car as “MK 2. ”
Adhering to Sir William Lyons' maxim of “grace. pace and space. the Mark 2 was a fast and capable saloon. It came with a 120 horsepower. 2. 4L engine. a 210 horsepower. 3. 4L engine or a 220 horsepower 3. 8L Jaguar XK engine. The 3. 8 is similar to the unit used in the 3. 8 E-Type (called XKE in the USA). having the same block. crank. connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburetion (two SUs versus three on the E-Type in Europe) and therefore 30 horsepower less. The head of the six-cylinder engine in the Mark 2 had curved ports compared to the straight ports of the E-Type configuration. The 3. 4L and 3. 8L cars were fitted with twin SU HD6 carburetors and the 2. 4L with twin Solex carburetors.
Compared to the Mark 1. appearance of the car was transformed by an increase of 18 percent in cabin glass area. greatly improving vision. The car was re-engineered above the waistline. slender front pillars allowed a wider windscreen and the rear window almost wrapped around to the enlarged side windows now with the familiar Jaguar D-shape above the back door and fully chromed frames for all the side windows. The radiator grille was amended and larger side. tail and fog lamps repositioned. Inside a new heating system was fitted and ducted to the rear compartment. There was an improved instrument layout that became standard for all Jaguar cars until the XJ series II of 1973.
The front suspension geometry was rearranged to raise the roll center and the rear track widened. Four-wheel disc brakes were now standard. Power steering. overdrive or automatic transmissions could be fitted at extra cost. The 3. 8L was fitted with a limited-slip differential. The Mark 2 was more than 220 pounds heavier than the 2. 4/3. 4 cars
A Jaguar with the 3. 8L engine was capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 8. 5 seconds and could reach a top speed of 125 mph.
