Few things are equally loved by both bank robbers and policemen, but the Jaguar Mk2 is an exception. Launched in 1959, it was the epitome of the “Grace, space and pace” that marque founder Sir William Lyons said should define a Jaguar. Gorgeous bodywork, a smart wood and leather interior plus engine choices including a 200bhp 3.8-litre straight-six meant that the Mk2 could hit 125mph with five people on board. That made it the first choice as a getaway car – and for the police who were chasing the crooks.

Modern-day Jaguar Mk2 fans are more likely to know the classic saloon model as the car that was driven by an on-screen policeman – Inspector Morse.
