Discover the elegance and the English chic of the 1950s and 60s by getting behind the wheel of our 1961 MK2. Find the cosy warmth of an English parlour, sat in a Connolly leather armchair surrounded by intricate wooden marquetry. The Jaguar MK2, the most luxurious sporty sedan of the 1960s, had no match in its time. It was the most beautiful, the safest and the most stable of the compact Jaguars, a revolution in terms of performance, handling, comfort, driving quality and introduced an innovative 4-disc braking system. This model was the vision of its 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, 4 times winner of the “Tour de France automobile” between 1960 and 1963.
