The MK series from Jaguar
As a successor to the formally very classic Jaguar MK 5, Jaguar launched the MK 7 saloons in 1950. For the first time, the luxury class saloon got along without free-standing wings, and the engine was more than ample with the 3.4-litre XK engine. The rear wheels were driven up to a top speed of 165 km/h via a four-speed gearbox with a middle gearstick.
The MK 8, available from 1956, shared the bodywork with its predecessor but was even more powerful. It enabled the limousine to reach a top speed of 180 km/h. However, this was only opposed by 7 miles of motorway in England in 1958. It differed from the MK 5 as follows: The radiator grille was adorned with a wide chrome surround, the windscreen was now slightly curved, the centre bar was omitted and the interior was made a touch more luxurious.
The MK 9 was the last evolutionary stage, which went into series production from 1958. Equipped with the 3.8-litre engine, a three-speed automatic and disc brakes were now available for the first time. The saloon reached a top speed of 185 km/h. The MK 9 was the most successful model in the series, featured power steering as standard and is still an impressive and technically appealing car today.
