Jaguar Mk 2 - Very High Specification - JD Classics
If you want an example of the absolute ultimate JD Mk11 Jaguar - the Willow Green example we have here is probably a pretty good starting point. This Jaguar Mk11 3.8 was built by JD Classics without any consideration to cost - the final build total was well in excess of half a million pounds and the brief was quite simple from the client who commissioned the car - "build me the ultimate modern interpretation of the iconic MK11 Jaguar." The full specification list of extras applied to this car is too long to list - but highlights include: Full spec 4.7 engine on Throttle bodies - advanced engine management - every component balanced - and hand assembled in our race engine shop on site. We have a hard won reputation for building the most powerful XK race engines in the world - the same race engine builders built this engine as a showcase of what probably represents the ultimate road/race Jaguar XK engine. To cope with the prodigious performance increase and to keep things cool - additional oil coolers for engine and transmission were installed under the front bumper in custom made shrouds, a custom made alloy radiator was fitted, the bonnet features custom louvers and in the engine bay - we installed extra inner wing engine cooling vents. We fitted Solid billet brake/clutch Reservoirs on the bulkhead and the car featured a hidden large capacity windscreen washer reservoir. This engine was paired to a bespoke 5 speed close ratio JD Gearbox, and this power was tamed by race specification Dual Circuit Brakes, Remote control Shock Absorbers, with Full electrical power steering and the car sits on Custom 16 Inch stainless steel period wire wheels. Other custom features include - a Wiring loom to F1 standard with old fashioned original style covering/Braiding and following racecar practice - the Battery was moved to the boot for better weight distribution. A neat idea was the use of a Photo cell on rear parcel shelf to enable constant charging of the battery! Naturally both front and rear screens were heated. The interior of the car included: JD custom seats with Hidden Rear inertia seat belts. Derrington Steering Wheel, with Period custom Switch gear to the left of the wheel. Custom Pedals, Ipod Dock Custom made in the centre console with Sat Nav above Radio and incorporating Hidden Speakers. Custom made Air conditioning fitted in the bulkhead with the switches in the Ashtray, Foot well lighting - Fully retractable Umbrellas fitted to front door pillars. For use in today's busy traffic conditions - Rear Headrests were fitted with Brake lights, Parking sensors were added, LED Fog lights in the rear brake light cluster were incorporated. Twin outside fuel fillers were fitted and for security - Central Locking including the boot and an Iso fix child rear seat fixing were incorporated - just in case you had to transport small precious cargo... Perhaps the most appropriate extra which is highly relevant to a car of this performance was the fitment of Radar in both the front and rear Number plates.... Whilst it would be naive to suggest this car did not suggest it had something a little "extra" under the bonnet - the discreet exquisite hand built body of this classic Jaguar belied the tremendous real world performance of this very fast and refined GT car - much to the astonishment of other road users who have been passed whilst driving their modern "performance" cars... JD Classics reputation speaks for itself - we build the best bespoke Jaguars in the world - and our wealth of experience, success on track, - together with our endorsement by Jaguar Cars Ltd as their worldwide Jaguar Heritage Racing partner - means that - when you ask us to build your ultimate specification classic Jaguar for use on today's roads - we confidently assert we can build the best and meet or exceed your expectations.

The previous Jaguar 2.4 and 3.4 models made between 1955 and 1959 have been identified as Mark 1 Jaguars since Jaguar produced this Mark 2 model.[

1965 Jaguar MK2 3.8 Manual
Back in the days of The Sweeney, Jaguar's MK2 was the choice of blaggards and felons in trying to out run Scotland Yard's Ford Granadas. But does the Jaguar MK2 meet the requirements of Sir William Lyons in providing Grace, Pace and Space? We took Great Escape Classic Car Hire's tidy example out and think it probably couldn't define it any better.





BEACHAM JAGUAR MK2 HD ( New Music )
This video is now available for you in full HD ( New Music ). Please select the HD button in the bottom right hand corner to view this video in full HD. Beacham Jaguar Mk II "A Mk II Jaguar, on chrome wire wheels, is a favourite of many classic car lovers. But this is no ordinary Mk II. Beacham™ Jaguar has created a Mk II-bodied XJR - thunderous supercharged V8 and all. It's an exquisite work of art." SPECIFICATIONS - Modern Jaguar V8 4.0-litre engines / matching transmission - Supercharged ­ 370bhp / Normally-aspirated ­ 290bhp - Air Conditioning / Total Climate Control - Air Bags (SRS) - ABS, Traction Control and Anti-Dive System - Premium Jaguar Audio (Multi-CD, AM/FM, Cassette) - Full Power Equipment: Power Windows, Wheel Adjustment, Seats, Mirrors, (with Memory function), Remote Locking, etc. - Power-operated Sunroof - Available integrated GPS The Mk II Jaguar was perhaps the world's first luxury/performance sedan. Fitted with 4 doors and with room for a family, the Mk II soon became the transport of choice for gangsters and police departments alike in its native Britain, as well as the unbeatable champion in UK and European sedan racing. Beacham™ Jaguar made its early reputation as world-class restorers of these cars, gradually upgrading them with the more modern technology of newer Jaguars. Indeed the initial development on the Supercharged V8 cars was carried out using the Mk II base units. To date more than 200 Mk IIs have been delivered to customers by the company. The Mk II is a timeless classic - its looks are totally unconventional. It has a unique shape that owes nothing to anything else - except the Mark I. It is a mix of traditions with its vertical oval grille, rounded lines, and a clubhouse interior that could only be British. Gorgeous in the 1960s, still gorgeous today. So the notion of stuffing a 4.0 litre, supercharged XJR engine and drivetrain under the elegant coachwork of a classic Mk II Jaguar seems like the stuff of dreams. Introducing the Beacham™ MkII "You have to come to grips with this car emotionally. It may look "old" but it's been re-engineered, re-developed and completely rebuilt so that it is, to all intents and purposes, new." Externally it looks very familiar, the only real giveaways for the sharp-eyed are the louvres from the XKR sports car in the bonnet, the air scoops under the front bumper, and the bigger Jaguar competition tires and chrome wire wheels. However it is beneath the skin, and inside the cabin where the most obvious visual changes are to be found. Under the bonnet the Beacham™ Mk II is crammed full of technology: ABS brakes, traction control, anti-dive suspension geometry and more. But it is the interior where the achievement really hits home. Trimmed in supple new leather, the modern seats have all the power controls from the current Jaguar. Included is a full complement of comfort and safety systems: Power Windows and Locking of course; Power-adjustable Steering Wheel, Side Mirrors, all with Memory Function; Climate Control and a Power-operated Sunroof of course, even the SRS/Airbag Systems. Topped off with a premium sound system and GPS, all is joy set into a bespoke polished wood veneer dash. The result is a revelation to drive. Yes, the Beacham™ Mk II is fast, very: 0-60mph in around six seconds fast. Yes, it steers, handles and drives extraordinarily well. Yes, the car has been re-engineered from the wheels up and the workmanship is exceptional. Yes, if you put preconceived notions aside and approach the car with pragmatism, you can successfully merge today's technology, electronics and trim with 1960s styling. The integration of the mechanical components has to be considered a remarkable engineering feat. The quality of workmanship is stunning, with a level of fit and finish well beyond that of most new cars - it is, after all, a thoroughly handbuilt vehicle. Close the doors and they close easily, but firmly - that's another advancement, modern air-filled, hollow door seals with holes to let the compressed air out. A small detail but which adds to the modern feel of the car. But the real delight is supplied when the throttle pedal is introduced to the floor. It's easy to drive, fast, flexible and comfortable. "The Beacham™ Mk II is a brand new car with impeccable breeding - and with performance to match."

Two Mk2 Jaguars In Need Of Restoration
This shows in detail the inside and outside of two Mk2 Jaguars which are in need of restoration and are in a secret location in Guernsey, Channel Islands.These two Mk2 Jaguars have been in the same place, on some wasteland, right by the sea for at least a year as I filmed most of this a year ago and needed to redo some stuff on the 8th April 2011 and they were still there. A couple things had been damaged on the Mk2 Jaguars since last year but they were in much the same condition despite being a few feet from corrosive sea water. Someone obviously paid to have these Jaguars imported into Guernsey, as one still has a UK number plate 526 XUB and had left them with some doors unlocked, just to rot away and at risk being vandalised.

Made as part of the Leviathan campaign to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Mark 10 and 420G, this resulted in 27 of these cars attending our National Day at Rockingham Castle on August 7th, almost certainly a record showing. It's a great time to join the Jaguar Drivers' Club. Membership from just £30 per annum. For information on the Jaguar Drivers' Club, go to: www.jaguardriver.co.uk We've been looking after the needs of Jaguar owners since 1956. Look out for our other Jaguar movies. Do please leave some comments on the video or the event if you have time - thank you.
