The MKVII Jaguar was launched at the 1950 London Motor Show. A big, confident-looking four-door sports Saloon, it was a clever blend of old and new. Old, was the chassis, which was borrowed from the outgoing MKV model. New, was the streamlined body featuring fully integrated headlights, removable rear-wheel spats and a two-piece, V-shaped windscreen. Gone too was the MKV's pre-war engine and in its place came a 160bhp 3.4-litre version of Jaguar's stunning new DOHC XK straight-six unit. Manufactured from 1954-1956, the MKVII M boasted a further 30bhp and a top speed of almost 105mph. The newcomer was most easily distinguished by the chrome intake grilles beneath the headlights.
