The Jaguar 2.4 / 3.4 litre, which was later called the MK 1, was in no way a bad car: technically advanced, elegant and – at least in the 160 hp version – also sporty. With over 35,000 units sold, it was a clear success. And yet: In 1959, William Lyons decided it was time for a major overhaul. Essentially, the car was redesigned above the beltline, with considerably more glass around the passenger compartment, as well as minor modifications regarding the radiator grille and the arrangement of the lights.
Technical changes include, in addition to the more powerful engines, the rear track widening and the standard four-disc brakes.
The MK 2 is thus considered the model for all modern sports saloons. Unsurprisingly, this model was a great success for Jaguar, with over 90,000 cars sold, including the late 240 and 340 versions
