1968 Jaguar 340 MKII
Location: United Kingdom
Launched in 1955 the MK1 extended Jaguar’s domination of the high-performance car market in Britain, slotting neatly into the Coventry firm’s range alongside the big MKVIII saloon and the XK sports cars. The medium size newcomer broke new ground for Jaguar, being its first model to employ unitary construction of the chassis/body. The MK1 was progressively updated throughout its life before it was relaunched with some minor changes as the MK2 in October 1959. The MK2 offered a choice of three engines including the 3.4 litre six cylinder unit which propelled the car form 0-60mph in just over 11secs and onto a top speed of 120mph.
