1959-1967 JAGUAR Mk2 3.4 specificationshttp://www.classicandperformancecar.comClassic and Performance CarClassic and Performance Car
Previously, the 3.4-litre XK engine had been enough to top the compact saloon range, but all that changed with the arrival of the Mk2. But for 1959, the mid-range car had been significantly improved, thanks to a raft of small, but significant improvements. With more than enough power on board, the adoption of a wider front and rear track improved road manners, optimising a car that was hardly lacking in the first place. Heavier than before, the Mk2’s performance was slightly blunted, but that was addressed by the arrival of the 3.8.
