Beacham MK2 Jaguar
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."

Позиционирование автомобиля на
российском рынке - главный вопрос,
который Сергей Стиллавин и Рустам
Вахидов задали себе во время "Большого
тест-драйва" машины Jaguar XF. Кто купит этот
автомобиль за почти 3 миллиона рублей,
учитывая неплохой экстрерьер, спорные
моменты в интерьере и наличие достойных
конкурентов в этом ценовом сегменте?
