1958 Jaguar 2.4 Mark I Saloon

In 1955, Mark 1 saloon, which was relatively small, was launched. It was the first "monocoque" or unibody car from the Jaguar Company. Mark 1 Jaguar car used a 2.4L, a short stroke version of Engine XK.

The car was improved in 1959. Jaguar Company made the new version to have wider windows and with larger engine.

The XK series engine of Mark I are the XKR and XK8. They were produced by a British Jaguar automaker since 1997. The XK8 engine was the first 8-cylinder car produced by Jaguar, when the engine AJ-V8 Jaguar was launched.

The XK series eninges of Mark I are limited to a top speed of 250 km/h or 155 mph. And through the years, the XK8 engine made a change in direction for the company and produced the X-type and S-type enginie.
