JAGUAR MK X (1961-1970) CAR HISTORY

Car review on JAGUAR MK X

Broad in the beam, sumptuously curvaceous, the MkX/420G still holds the title of widest British production saloon, with 6ft 4in (1.93m) across its bulbous hips. It had and still has a chunky, slick elegance all of its own. A huge advance on its separate-chassis forefathers, this ail-independently suspended and power-steered saloon was half the price of its nearest true competitors in the tycoon luxury class of 1961.


British buyers were always resistant to the sheer bulk of the car — 51/2in longer than the big MkIX it replaced and a squat 8'/2m lower — yet if the scale of the MkX was very Detroit, the line was unmistakably Lyons.


The MkX was originally equipped with the triple-carburetor 3.8-litre XK engine from the E-Type. The 4.2-litre unit of 1964 brought more torque (2831b/ft - 384.9 N m - at 4000rpm) but an identical power curve (peaking at 265 bhp at 3000rpm), enough to push the 43001b (1950kg) saloon along at 120 mph (193 kph) even in automatic transmission form. In fact, through the gears, the automatic car was consistently faster than the manual, beating 10 seconds to 60 mph (96 kph); a hard- driven MkX wouldn't have been far behind the tearaway MkII 3.8 and is quicker than a 4.2 XJ all the way up to100 mph (160 kph). All this from a truly lavish five-seater saloon with a boot you could rent out as a bijou flatlet.


Yet buyers never took to this gentle giant of a car in the way they had to the Mks VII, VIII and IX before it. Interest had fallen away dramatically even by the time the 4.2 was announced, and it look a mid-term name change to rejuvenate sales in its final years. Thus, at Earls Court in 1966, MkX became 420G, causing instant confusion with its slimmer sibling, the new S-Type-based 420, that continues to this day.


Nobody really knows what the G stood for-there was no official line - but the general consensus seems to be "Grand", it’s the shape remained unchanged but an instant recognition point was a new bright metal beading which broke up the car's massive flanks. The front grille was changed too - with a thick central strip – as were the wheel trims with their new black centre badges. Inside the G, the skull-threatening timber dash rail was now padded (and equipped with a transistorized clock), while its seats were reshaped slightly to give more lateral support - something that road testers had consistently griped about. The last 420Gs were built in 1970 as the standard-setting XJ got into stride, but the model lived on, in a sense, as the big DS420 Daimler Limousine which used a stretched version of the same floorpan.
