"A Jaguar isn’t a copy of anything", Sir Lyons
Step into our 1961 MK2 and discover all the English elegance and chic of the ‘50s and ‘60s. Experience the cozy warmth of an English parlor, seated in the plush comfort of a Connolly leather armchair surrounded by intricate marquetry woodwork.
The most luxurious sports sedan of the 1960s, the Jaguar MK2 had no match during its era. It was the safest, most beautiful, and stable of all the compact Jaguars; a revolution in performance, handling, comfort, and driving quality, even introducing an innovative four-wheel disc braking system.
This model was the brainchild of charismatic creator Sir William Lyons, knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1956. It proved itself in competitions and international rallies in the hands of Formula 1 drivers such as Stirling Moss, Mike Hawthorn, Graham Hill and even Bernard Consten. The latter was a four-time winner (1960-1963) of the bygone Tour de France Automobile race, held annually.
