Jaguar's Classic Mark2 is Renovated and Revealed by Ian Callum
|   Wednesday, September 10, 2014
The Design Chief of Jaguar renovation project contains so many technical and aesthetic modifications. After a long one and half years of development, the Jaguar Mark2 is unveiled after redesigning it by Ian Callum, the Design Director of Jaguar.

After complete development this model was first shown off in the opening of new office of Classic Motors (CMC). CMC holds the key responsibility for the reengineering of Jaguar Mark2. However it should be clear to all readers that this car was renovated only for the personal use of Callum himself.


Callum modified this model according to his own ideas but kept the integrity of real Mark2 intact. For most of the fans, this change has brought a lot more excitement in performance and looks of it.

As per Callum, the originally made Mark2 is made with full care and making it even better was really a tough challenge. But he wanted to do it to bring even better shape to it and make it perform even nicer.

He kept the basic form same as before because he wanted to maintain the same purity in its newer version. Callum just wanted to add few modern supports which would make the design look and perform better. Clarity with simplification is what he wanted for.

The modified Callum's Mark2 car has got a new engine of 4.3 liter XK capacity, manual 5 speed gearbox, unique and separate rear suspension and a better set of front brakes. He made its form lower about 30mm than the original and changed the spoke wheels to 17 inch split set of rims.

Callum decided to add bumpers to the previous form to make it a balanced body. Because he likes traditional racing cars of older days, he modified those designs to a modern style and applied it to this model.

He made sure that four louvers would appear on car's sides to show its power and its different structure. But they also have works to do, that's why these are developed in a lower pressure area so that internal airflow would be much better from engine.

CMC has designed and done all the engineering works of this model. At the front there is a bespoke enabled rack, roll bar, upgraded coil springs, wishbone bushes, solid sub frame mounting and adjustable dampers which would help the driver more.

At the rear, the suspension is added with upgraded coil springs, outboard enabled disc brakes, anti rolled bar, blade controlled wishbones and adjust dampers. A high end audio system from Clarion is fitted in the interior for clean and real time music experience. It also has recording enabled specifications cables.

During the show time of this model top racers such as John Surtees, Formula One Champion and John Surtees, Motorcycle Champion were present. Norman Dewis, Jaguar's official test driver was also present in that show.

Jaguar's new Mark2 will be there in its first public outing in Salon Car Show in West London's Syon Park during 3rd and 5th September.
