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
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
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
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

In 2005 I done some rust repairs on a MK2 Jaguar for a friend, I done the
rapairs in my garage where I was renting at the time, the paint work was

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.

Jaguar Mk 2 4.0 - JD Classics
JD Classics are the worldwide Jaguar Heritage Racing partner for Jaguar
Cars Ltd. We effectively look after and maintain the most valuable road and
race Jaguars for the manufacturer and through hundreds of race preparations
and restorations of Mk. II Jaguars - we have an unrivalled experience of
upgrading this particular Jaguar model.
This special Jaguar Mk11 that JD Classics has for sale has benefited from
approximately 3000 hours' work - and represents the pinnacle of the classic
Mk11 Jaguar style with the benefit of 50 years' worth of development and
We started off with a 1962 Jaguar Mk. II and treated the car to a full JD
Classics restoration to JD Sport specification 5 years ago - since then the
car has been subject to an annual no-expense spared maintenance programme
and is in exceptional condition.
The specification includes:
Fully restored, rustproofed and strengthened body shell - fitted with
Coombs rear wheel arches and finished in Opalescent Dark Blue.
The interior has been trimmed with grey hide throughout with matching
carpets, JD Sport electric adjustable and heated seats, steel electric
sunroof, power windows, tinted glass, heated rear screen, inertia reel
front and rear seat belts, custom made rear baby seats in matching grey
leather with ISO fix fittings. Modern refinements include our latest zoned
digital air conditioning and electric adjustable power steering has been
fitted in last the few months.
The fully rebuilt, balanced and hand assembled 4.0 AJ6 fuel injected engine
- provides very strong power and torque - with figures well in excess of
the most highly tuned 3.8 engines from 50 years ago. This particular car
with its advanced engine management and upgraded cooling system - drives
exactly like a modern GT car - fuss free in traffic - without overheating -
not something which can always be said of an original Mk. II Jaguar!
When it comes to driving - the modern 5 speed gearbox fitted to this car is
a massive advance over its period Moss fitment - not just in ease of use
and shift quality - but also with the additional 5th gear - relaxed high
speed cruising now becomes the cars forte. In addition - whilst we'll
concede economy is hardy the rationale behind this car - the fuel injected
modern engine together with the improved gearbox provides a welcome and
practical benefit in fuel economy - and provides the car with a usefully
longer range than it's period counterpart.
These significant performance upgrades are tamed by AP 4 pot racing brakes
with ABS - together with the security and stability of our JD Sport
suspension and the car runs on strengthened competition specification
chromed wire wheels with period sympathetic modern performance tyres.
If you are looking to make an emotional and financial investment in the
very best Jaguar Mk. II available anywhere - this car presents a marriage
of classic Jaguar style with a thoroughly enjoyable and exhilarating modern
21st century driving experience - amply capable of coping with today's more
arduous traffic conditions.
