The Jaguar Mark VII was a large four door sports sedan launched by Jaguar Cars of Coventry at the 1950 London Motor Show.

The Mk VII chassis came from the Jaguar Mark V with which the Mark VII shared its 10 feet (3,048.0 mm) wheelbase. But for this latest offering Jaguar designed a modern and streamlined looking body, featuring fully integrated headlights and mudguards along with an increased rear overhang which gave the car enhanced presence. As on the Mark V, the upper part of the rear wheels was covered by the body work. In place of its predecessor’s flat windscreen, the Mark VII design included a two piece front screen, adumbrating the gently curved one piece screen that would become available with the Jaguar Mark VIII.

The predecessor model had been powered by an engine of prewar design, originally developed by the Standard Motor Company. The Mark VII featured the remarkable newly developed XK engine first seen in in production form in the 1949 Jaguar XK. The 3442 cc straight six engine provided the same 160 bhp (119.3 kW) power output in this application as in the Mark VII’s sports car contemporary. Despite its size, a top speed in excess of 100 mph (160 km/h) was claimed for the Mark VII.

The Jaguar Mark VII’s arrival coincided with some relaxation of the desperate economic situation that pervaded Britain after the war. Already in 1951 the enthusiastic reception of the Mark VII in the UK and US markets was given by the company as the reason for their relocation to larger premises, in a plant built for wartime production as a so called “shadow factory” and now available for immediate use. By the time of the Mark VII’s 1954 upgrade, 20,908 had been produced.

A car tested by the British magazine The Motor in 1952 had a top speed of 101 mph (163 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 13.7 seconds.

The Jaguar Mark VII had replaced the Jaguar Mark V. As there was a Bentley Mark VI already on the market, Jaguar decided to call the next model Mark VII. A high powered version of the Jaguar Mark V had been designated the Jaguar Mark VI, but it is thought that only two of these were built.
