In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the legendary Mark 2 Sedan, Jaguar has unveiled a new clothing and accessories range.
Featuring the "exceptional attention to detail Jaguar cars have always been renowned for", a choice of 3 heritage art prints capture the spirit of the original sports sedan, while a set of four espresso cups feature graphics inspired by the Mark 2’s distinctive twin headlamps.
The Mark 2's role in popular culture is celebrated on a T-shirt with the ‘Ultimate Getaway Car’ printed on the back. Available in three colours, it also has an instantly recognisable graphic of the car's shape. A zip-up cotton jacket features the same stylised image on the inner lining while a cap showcases a second design.
Zip-up jacket features image of "the ultimate getaway car."
Joe Sinclair, Jaguar Land Rover Director of Branded Goods and Licensing, said: “We wanted to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the legendary Mark 2 in a way that allowed enthusiasts to show their admiration for the car. It’s such an iconic vehicle that this collection will appeal to anyone interested in enduring design and classic vehicles.”
The Jaguar Mark 2 was launched in 1959 at the Earls Court Motor Show, London, and became an overnight sensation, embodying all three attributes from William Lyons’ famous advertising slogan: Grace, space and pace. It was available with a choice of powerful XK-derived 6-cylinder engines, including the top-of-the-range 3.8-litre that delivered 164kW and a top speed of 201km/h.
Prints, t-shirts, espresso cups... there's a lot of Mark 2 style to choose from!
Along with its reputation for its exceptional on-road performance, the Mark 2 was also part of Jaguar’s motorsport success story, with Roy Salvadori and Graham Hill among the greats to drive it to victory in saloon car races.
