After Sir William Lyons saying
of "grace, pace and space", the Mark 2 endured a good-looking, wild and
capable car. It began through a 120 bhp 2.4 L, 210 bhp 3.4 L or 220 bhp
3.8 L Jaguar XK6 machine.
The 3.8 is similar to the module used in the 3.8 E-Type (XKE), having
the similar bloc, crank, linking rods and pistons but changed inlet
manifold and carburetion (two SUs against three on the E-Type in
Europe) and then 30 bhp fewer.
The head of the six cylinder engine in the Mark 2 had curled ports
related to the old-style ports of the E-Type design. For markets other
than the US the 3.4 was fitted with twin SU carburetors and the 2.4
with twin Solexes, but three Solexes were used in US spec 3.4s and 3.8s
in order to meet SMOG reliefs rule.
