STORY

The Jaguar Mark V (MK V) was a luxury sedan produced by the British car manufacturer Jaguar from 1948 to 1951. The MK V was the successor to the Jaguar Mark IV and was produced during the late 1940s and early 1950s.

The Jaguar MK V was first introduced at the London Motor Show in 1948. The design of the MK V was characterized by traditional elegance and showed influences from previous models such as the MK IV.

The MK V featured a 3.5-litre inline-six engine that offered respectable performance for the time. Power was sent to the rear wheels via a manual gearbox.

The vehicle technology was advanced, with independent front suspension and hydraulic brakes.

The MK V was positioned as a luxury sedan and appealed to wealthy buyers who valued elegance and performance. Approximately 10,500 MK V cars were produced during its production run.

The Jaguar MK V contributes to Jaguar's history as a luxury car manufacturer and represents the company's efforts to offer stylish and high-performance cars. It was part of an era in which British luxury cars gained global recognition.

PERSONAL STORY

This historically very interesting MK V was first delivered to the then General Director of the Austrian National Bank, Wolfgang Stauber.
It had the registration number W-350. He owned it for 25 years and gave the car to his nephew Michael Klein, a good friend of ours, in 1975. At the time, he ran a luxury bathroom furnishing company called 'Poseidon' and supplied the Shah of Persia, among others.
In 1991 he was sold to an accident surgeon in Linz. Before he came to us, he spent the last 22 years in Steyr.
