Jaguar Mark 2 by Ian Callum [VIDEO]
Jaguar Mark 2 by Ian Callum is a very special car as it visible from the pictures. The unique car was redesigned by Ian Callum, who is the Director of Design at Jaguar Cars, and reengineered by leading restorers Classic Motor Cars Limited. To accomplish the project, both parties needed 18 months. They have retained the integrity of the original Mark 2, whilst making it even more exciting in shape and performance.
The car boasts a huge number of aesthetic and technical modifications which make it more practical, reliable, enjoyable and exciting. For instance, the car is powered by the modified and uprated 4.3 litre XK engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. It also features unique independent rear suspension and upgraded front brakes.
Furthermore, the Jaguar is now 30 mm lower to the ground and runs on 17" split rim spoke wheels. The bumpers are now part of the overall form. Four louvres appear on the side of the car and add a sense of power and individuality.
CMC worked on the suspension. The front includes a bespoke power assisted rack, uprated coil springs, roll bar and wishbone bushes, adjustable dampers and solid subframe mountings, repositioned to improve anti-dive characteristics. Next, the independent rear suspension now features uprated coil springs, blade control wishbones, outboard disc brakes, an anti-roll bar and adjustable dampers.
Inside, the car has been fitted with Clarion's NZ502E single DIN multimedia station. It includes 16 cm flip-out touch screen and component loudspeakers in specially-designed housings. The car will make its first public debut at Salon Prive between 3rd and 5th of September at Syon House in Brentford.
