‘Undoubtedly the biggest surprise which this new Jaguar gives on taking the wheel for the first time concerns the matter of size. Its beautiful sweeping lines seen from the outside, and its spacious and luxurious interior sampled from within, both suggest the large car that it really is … yet it does not feel a large car to drive. The finger-light controls, the good forward vision and, above all, the taut “oneness” about the whole car all combine to place a driver immediately at ease.’ – Motor magazine on the Jaguar Mark X.

Launched in October 1961, the Jaguar Mark X had been developed to suit the North American market and was a large car by European standards. It was also technically more advanced than preceding Jaguar saloons and featured independent rear suspension similar to that of the E-Type sports car. The same unit as that fitted to the contemporary E-Type, its engine was the tried-and-tested 3.8-litre XK six producing 265bhp on triple SU carburetors, and for a car weighing around two tons, the 120mph Mark X was impressively quick, though inevitably the weight took its toll of the fuel consumption. The interior, like that of all Jaguar saloons, was exceptionally well appointed and comfortable, and the Mark X came with power-assisted steering as standard. By the time the face-lifted 420G version came along in 1966, the Mark X was being built with the 4.2-litre engine and (optional) all-synchromesh gearbox while incorporating numerous other improvements.

Over the years, some Mark X’s have been converted to drophead form to varying degrees of quality and success, with some off-looking 4 door convertibles. This car however, couldn’t be any further from that. Benefitting from the more powerful 4.2 engine being one of the very rare, last of line Mark X’s supplied with said engine before receiving the new 420G designation, our Convertible is a truly stunning car, finished to such a standard that it looks like a standard production car. Finished in Opalescent Gun Metal Grey over Crimson leather. The Jaguar Mark X in this configuration also looks truly brilliant as a 2 door, truly complimenting the sleek lines of the standard car with its low-slung coachwork. Not only is this a beautiful car in design but its complimented by true concours-standard paintwork and a stunning, rich interior too. Even the hood follows the sleek lines of the standard car, with so many conversions featuring ugly, cumbersome roofs, our Mark X is a breath of fresh air.

All in all, this Jaguar is an elegant, full-size luxury convertible and makes for both a stylish and unique alternative to contemporaries such as Mercedes SE Convertibles, Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Bentley S-Series Dropheads among others. One thing this car is is irreplaceable, we truly challenge you to find another, let alone one presented so beautifully as the car we are so proud to present to you today. Not to be missed.
