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

340. The previous Jaguar 2.4 and 3.4 models made between 1955 and 1959 have

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 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
- 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
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
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.
