2014 Jaguar Mark 2 by Ian Callum

This re-engineered Jaguar Mark 2 is a joint venture between Jaguar’s Design Director Ian Callum and Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth. The revised Jaguar Mark 2 has been 18 months in the making and will be used by Callum personally. The modifications are extensive, stretching far beyond the obvious cosmetic changes in a bid to make the car even more “exciting in shape and performance”. 

The personalized Jaguar Mark 2 no longer has the original engine - instead, it is powered by a revised inline-6 XK engine increased to 4.3 liters producing 260 hp (against 220hp) and torque of 380 Nm. To be able to derive the extra power adequate to the rear wheels, a five-speed manual gearbox and a new rear suspension was installed. In addition comes on the front axle, a new brake system used.

The Jaguar Mark 2 was lowered by 30 millimeters and stands or rolls on 17-inch alloy wheels. The wheelbase also grew. A number of modern aesthetic twists have been added, such as the integrated bumpers and four (working) louvres. 

Inside, the roof lining is in Alcantara. For the entertainment, a Clarion Multimedia Station with a retractable 16-inch touchscreen monitor displays GPS or a backup camera. Furthermore, among other things, a chrome tachometer including "IC", the initials of the chief designer. ( &

Update: March 2015, currently a limited production of twelve cars is underway at Classic Motors Cars (CMC), the company which was also responsible for the production of the initial car. For a rumoured price of £350,000-£375,000 ($516,000-$553,000, €487,000-€522,000) you can be the owner of a unique Jaguar Mk 2 tailored by one the world’s finest car designers. (
