Jaguar Mark V 1950


Specifications


Description

Everything about this car, the feel of it, the way it goes, the way it sounds and the way it looks has distinction. Its engine is as docile around town as it is impatiently fast on the open road.

Steering is light, positive, self centering and free from road shocks. These cars can corner like racing cars yet the springing with the extra long torsion bars for the independent front suspension gives a delightfully smooth ride.

In its heyday, this was a car that expressed the British way of doing things. It had an extraordinary ability to cover long distances at high speeds without tiring driver and passengers. Seventy miles an hour without stress or effort was something back in the day - even today it is a tonic traveling around in it.
