MG Magnette

MG Magnette

MG is famous for its sports cars, but the saloons have always had a fair following.

Most of them are badge-engineered models from the BMC stables (see Austin, Morris, Riley or Wolseley for similar vehicles).

Jaguar XJ6 saloons (from 1968)

1968 Jaguar XJ6

The XJ6 of 1968 was destined to survive for 18 years. It was a replacement for both the large Mark X and the Mark II saloons. It was low and sleek and exceptionally well refined. The 4.2 litre engine was essentially the same as the Mark X unit, but a new 2.8 litre engine was also offered. Most XJ6s were fitted with automatic transmission, although a manual gearbox was offered.

 

Jaguar XK 120 (1948-1954)

The sensational 120 was introduced in 1948. It shared its chassis with the Mark V, although the 120's was shortened somewhat. The XK120 was equipped with the new twin-cam six cylinder engine.
