Description
 
- Jaguar MKII with amazing and very useful upgrades A total of 130.000,- euros spend 1 of the best examples we have owned to drive with restored to drive on a daily base According to sir William Lyons, well known as mister Jaguar is the MKII the maxim of grace, pace and space. Nowadays it is known as one of the nicest saloons which are classic but are very usable on a daily base as well. The MKII has two faces, one face shows a very fast sport saloon which make the car very attracting during it’s years for the police as well as for the thieves (think of the movies from Get Carter with Michael Caine and off-course inspector Morse). The other face showed an extremely comfortable, representative car which was mainly used as a business car for the “upper-class”. The space inside, the way of sitting in the chairs, the looks, but above all the way of driving make the Jaguar one of the greatest saloons to have in a collection. Approximately 6 years ago we were able to find a Jaguar MKII in a unique condition. We drove about 10.000 kilometers with the car in one summer. That specific Jaguar MKII was completely restored and upgraded in the Netherlands by a company which was specialized in upgrading Jaguar MKII’s. The so-called Roadster Group was specialized in making a classic car better then new. The goal of the company was to restore Jaguar MK2’s as perfect as possible and to do a restoration on such a way that the car could be as good in quality perspective as a new car. From the outside, the Jaguar had to look as classic as when it was newly coming from the factory, but the inner side had to become a more modern car. Therefore, this Jaguar MKII has been added with all different technical aspects to upgrade the car. Some of these upgrades are: an upgraded 4.2 litre XJ engine, which produces 208 horsepower the suspension of the wheels has been upgraded improved rear axle the steering has been upgraded the ventilation has been improved and added with air-conditioning the car has been fully packed with isolation so that the temperature in the car is perfect but also the sound an upgraded brake system has been installed superb stereo installation with cd-changer and so on and so on. The Roadster group mainly picked up the base of the MK2’s from California or Texas as they were without rust. Then the cars were completely stripped down. Every nut and every bolt were taken from the car and a full rebuilt started. A rebuilt which was done with keeping in mind that the Jaguar should drive at least 40.000 kilometers each year, so the quality level had to be rather high. This specific Jaguar MKII has been tailor made for a company named Network BV in The Hague in Holland. A total of 128.000,- has been spend on this Jaguar by this company. They wanted to have amongst the standard upgrades some extra options such as: a brake lock system with alarm and remote control extra leather inside the car different rear suspension improved automatic gearbox electrical seats head rests ad other things costing approximately another 25.000,- euro’s. When driving this Jaguar it is clear that this has been indeed a very impressive restoration. We have had quite a lot of Jaguar MK2’s but this specific example is qua driving not comparable with other Jaguars. It would be fantastic to drive this car on a daily base. As this car has been completely restored some years ago, it would be possible to find some minor details on the car, but overall the car is in a very impressive condition. ?The body is extremely nice with beautiful paintwork. The chrome is excellent with some minor scratches on the door handles. The interior is wonderful with beautiful leather and very comfortable seats. The wooden dashboard unfortunately show some small cracks but this we can easily replace as this is requested by the new owner. In short: this is an extremely nice Jaguar MKII and one of the best driving examples we have owned. A total amount of 130.000,- euro’s has been spend to make this car an amazing driving and looking example.
