Jaguar 'Mk1', 2.4litre, 3.4litre
There was no 'Jaguar Mark One', although that name has now been given to the Jaguar 2.4 and 3.4 built from 1957-59. Jaguar introduced its smallest car in 1955 as the 'Jaguar 2.4litre', giving it a new 2,483cc version of the 6-cylinder XK engine. With a new factory and spare capacity Jaguar set out for volume sales. The compact body was Jaguar's first monocoque shell, and even though it was designed for a lower price market it was still well trimmed. In 1957 Jaguar introduced the 'Jaguar 3.4litre' which was the same car plus 3,442cc engine from the Jaguar MkVIII, and disc brakes became optional. 3.4litre cars were given cutaway rear spats so that they could wear wire wheels. In 1959 Jaguar replaced these cars with the 'Mk2', and the name 'Mk1' was retrospectively given to them.
