A Vicarage Jaguar is like no other classic car.
It is much more than a straightforward restoration.
It can only be described as brand new.

Vicarage MkII side view Vicarage has been building and developing improved Mk II Jaguar's since 1984.

Each car is a testament to both the original Jaguar design by Sir William Lyons, dating back thirty years, and to the peerless contemporary engineering and coachwork skills of the Vicarage team.


Vicarage has continued to develop the Mk II, well after Jaguar ceased production of Britain's most elegant sporting saloon. When it first appeared, the Mk II was the fastest four door saloon in the world. With uprated engines, a new gearbox, the specially designed Harvey Bailey / Vicarage suspension system, weighted power steering and well ducted airconditioning, a Vicarage Mk II Jaguar has been adapted to cope with modern roads and driving conditions. For purists, Vicarage still offers a restoration service true to the original Jaguar design and specification. Vicarage MkII frontal

Vicarage MkII grille Developing a thirty-year-old design and working to the painstaking standards Vicarage insists on, demands a highly motivated workforce and professional management. Vicarage stands out in the classic car business by meeting these twin demands. A Vicarage car is the remarkable end product of an uncompromising approach to design, manufacture, engineering and business know-how.

This professional approach has allowed Vicarage to extend its peerless range of motor cars beyond its already legendary Mk II saloon. The new line-up includes a luxuriously appointed two-door convertible of the classic Mk II, The Vicarage E Type Roadster available in both Series I and III form as well as the XK model, XJ Coupes/ Saloons and the astounding XJ13 Le Mans prototype. Vicarage MkII front details

A Vicarage is no ordinary way of getting from A to B. Driver and passengers enjoy the experience of motoring in an uncompromised and sensual style. A Vicarage car is not a workaday machine, although it is engineered to be driven as hard as you choose to go. It is more of a prized possession, a highly collectable example of rolling sculpture, a car that recognises the taste, flair, ambition and driving force of its owner. Like all your most cherished belongings you will want to keep it for as long as possible. Vicarage's world-wide back-up service will ensure you are able to do so.

Vicarage MkII - details

But such special cars cannot be bought off the shelf. Vicarage exclusivity means that only a specific number of Jaguars are produced each year. Naturally there is a waiting list, yet a Vicarage Jaguar is a car well worth the wait, representing as it does a commitment to excellence in design, engineering, craftmanship, motoring pleasure and service. A car not just for special occasions, but one that makes every occasion special.
