Jaguar Classic, the official source of authentic cars, expert services, and genuine parts for classic Jaguar enthusiasts worldwide, has reintroduced it’s legendary 3.8-litre XK engine block.
The new engine will be the very same as the famous XK unit that was fitted to many coveted Jaguar saloons and sports cars of the 1950s and 1960s, including the legendary E-type. Unavailable new for more than 50 years, these are the only brand-new XK engine blocks available.
