The Jaguar Mark 2 was a medium-sized saloon car built from 1959 to 1967 in the Coventry factory. The Mark 2 gained a reputation as a capable car among criminals and law enforcement alike; the 3.8 Litre model being particularly fast with its 220bhp engine taking the car from 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds and to a top speed of 125mph with enough room for five adults. Popular as getaway cars, they were also employed by the Police to patrol British motorways. The Jaguar Mark 2 is also well known as the car driven by John Thaw in the popular TV series Inspector Morse. This image captures the classic design of the front grille, complete with Jaguar logo badge.
