Adhering to William Lyons' maxim of "grace, pace and space", the Mark II was a beautiful, fast and capable saloon car. It came with a 2.4 L, 3.4 L or 3.8 L Jaguar XK6 engine. The 3.4 is similar to the unit used in the 3.8 E-Type (XKE), having a different inlet manifold and carburetion (two SUs versus three on the E-Type in Europe) and therefore 30 bhp less. The head of the six cylinder engine in the E-Type was also different with its "straight port" layout as opposed to the slightly curved ports of the Mark II. The 2.4 was fitted with twin Solexes, of which three were used in US spec 3.4s and 3.8s in order to meet smog emissions legislation. This reduced power output over the equivalent SU carbureted examples. The Mark II model was raced successfully in the European Touring Car Championship.
