Article by Christian A., on September 4, 2014

Last Friday, we revealed you Ian Callum’s bespoke Jaguar Mark 2, a one-off vehicle built for Jaguar’s Director of Design. Apparently, the release of the custom vehicle made quite a buzz on the web and as a result, Classic Motor Cars Limited (CMC) announced that the will produce a limited edition run of cars.

The vehicles will not come cheap and CMC says that they will cost between 350,000 GBP ($574,000) and 375,000 GBP ($615,000). Buyers will have the opportunity to choose the body and interior colours. Each vehicle will get a 4.3-liter inline six-cylinder XK engine that develops 280 lb-ft (380 Nm) of torque at 5,000 and is bolted to a five-speed manual transmission.

As you can see from the photos, the vehicle is heavily modified and comes with new front and rear bumpers, widened front wings, rear wheel spats made of aluminum, a left rear wing that incorporates a vented panel that extracts air from the passenger compartment, removed chrome mouldings, remodeled exterior door handles, external mirrors and plastic inner wing shields fitted to front wings.

The nood badge was designed by Callum himself. In addition, the vehicle features heated front and rear windscreens, quartz halogen headlights and LED daylight running lights.

The interior receives new front and rear seats wrapped in Scottish leather, headlining in Alcantara, leather-wrapped sun visors, door casings in leather, dark oak trim with piano black edging, a signature of Ian Callum on the glove box, redesigned instrument cluster, a new rear view mirror, Wilton carpet, heat and sound insulation, electric time clock located in the centre of the instrument panels, stainless steel tread plates and as well as a modified heating and ventilation system.

Clarion will install its NZ502 ZE single DIN multimedia station, a rear view digital camera as well as new loudspeakers with a 350 watts output.

Regarding the comfort, there is a new front suspension designed and reengineered by CMC featuring adjustable dampers, solid subframe mountings and uprated coils springs, roll bar and wishbone bushes. Behind the new 17-inch Torrino split wheels there are new vented front discs with a 320 mm diameter, while the rear gets solid 280 mm discs. [source: Jaguar]
