BEACHAM MK2 V8
Beacham Mk II
"A MK2 Jaguar, on chrome wire wheels, is a favourite of many classic car lovers. But this is no ordinary MK2. Beacham Jaguar has created a MK2-bodied XJR - thunderous supercharged V8 and all. It's an exquisite work of art."
The MK2 Jaguar was perhaps the world's first luxury/performance sedan. Fitted with 4 doors and with room for a family, the MK2 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 racing.
Beacham 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 MK2's have been delivered to customers by the company.
The MK2 is a timeless classic - its looks are totally unconventional. It has a unique shape that owes nothing to anything else - except the Mark 1. 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.
