Jaguar Mark V Landaulette
Produced just for 1949 and 1950, the Mark V was Jaguar’s new postwar flagship and marked an important evolutionary step leading up to the XK-powered Mark VII that debuted for 1951. With its refined styling, independent front suspension and modern hydraulic front brakes, the Mark V retained the 2.5- and 3.5-liter OHV six-cylinder engines of its predecessor, as well as the luxurious appointments Jaguar buyers had come to expect.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in January of 2012 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort & Spa, Phoenix, Arizona.
102 bhp, 2,664 cc OHV inline six-cylinder engine, four-speed manual gearbox, independent front suspension with upper and lower wishbones and longitudinal torsion bars, rigid rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 120".
