Jaguar design boss Ian Callum, has teamed up with a British restoration shop called Classic Motor Cars for his newest automobile, a unique Jaguar Mark 2. Designed by Callum himself, the car took 18 months to build and boasts a huge number of aesthetic and technical modifications.
“This is a very personal statement. A long held notion that, although the Mark 2 has always been a beautiful car, it could be even more exciting in shape and performance. Whilst maintaining the purity of the car’s form, I wanted to add a number of modern twists to the design. Simplification and clarity was my objective,” Callum said in a statement.
This car isn’t as extreme, but it’s been lowered by 30mm, and sits on 17″ split rim spoke wheels, featuring a new independent rear suspension designed and reengineered by CMC. The interior is marked by a wood texture dash, while the seats, center console and door panels are all upholstered in bright red leather. Powering the car is a modified and upgraded 4.3 litre XK V8 engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission. What do you think of? YAY or NAY?
