The Jaguar Mk VII saloon and the XK sports car dominated two sectors of the high performance car market in the early 1950s. In order to increase this share further, Jaguar developed a sporting medium-sized saloon. The resultant design was to be one of Jaguar’s most successful cars, the Mk I of 1955, which was subsequently updated to the Mk II in 1959. This car, with the optional 3.8 litre 220 bhp engine was to be the ultimate Jaguar saloon. The Mk II range encompassed many important changes; larger windows enhanced the car’s appearance, the interior was vastly improved, the rear axle was widened and disc brakes were a welcome addition. There was a warning badge on the rear bumper denoting the exceptional stopping power these offered.
