The Jaguar Mark 2 built by Jaguar in Coventry, England was and still is a highly regarded sports saloon. Whether as a proper TV star in the hands of Inspector Morse or on race and rally circuits around the world, the Jaguar Mk. 11 certainly developed a reputation in line with Jaguars advertising slogan - Grace . . . Space . . . Pace. The Mk2 was and still is a fast and capable saloon.
In fact, here in Australia, Bob Jane won the 1962 and 1963 Australian Touring Car Championship driving a 3.8 litre Mk2 and an automatic Mk2 tested by Motor magazine in 1961 had a top speed of 119.9 mph (193.0 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 11.9 seconds.
For sale is a 1961 Jaguar Mk2 with 3.4 Ltr 210 bhp engine and factory manual Moss 4 speed gearbox with overdrive. The car was originally sold in the UK and was imported into New Zealand in the 1970s and then imported to Australia in 1982.
It had been laid up for a period of 25 years and was recommissioned by the current owner who purchased the car 3 years ago and undertook a full respray in Regency red as a tribute to the famous Inspector Morse Jag.
