Jaguar’s Design Director Ian Callum Creates a Reinterpreted Classic Mark 2
Styling basically every Jaguar car since the mid ’00s has its rewards and Ian Callum enjoys them by being able to get any model he desires. For his newest automobile, he decided to reach back into Jaguar’s illustrious history and thus he has commissioned a custom, rest0mod Jaguar Mark 2. Designed by Callum himself and built by Classic Motor Cars in Shropshire, England, the car boasts a 4.3-liter engine, which has been pilfered and modified to pair with a five-speed manual transmission. The suspension has also been altered to result in a ride that sits 1.18 inches closer to the ground along with a new power steering system.
Callum had this to say about his latest endeavor: ”This is a very personal statement. A long held notion that, although the Mark 2 has always been a beautiful car, it could be even more exciting in shape and performance. Whilst maintaining the purity of the car’s form, I wanted to add a number of modern twists to the design. Simplification and clarity was my objective.”
