Jaguar Classics Offers Legendary 3.8-Liter Engine Block for First Time in 50 years.

TGR Staff

Jaguar Classic has reintroduced the brand's legendary 3.8-liter inline-six cylinder XK engine block. The engine was fitted to some of Jaguar's most iconic cars of the 1950s and 1960s including the E-Type. New blocks haven't been offered for more than 50 years and these are the only new 3.8-liter engine blocks available today.

Built to original specifications, the cast-iron block is a direct replacement for the 3.8-liter six-cylinder engines originally fitted to the Jaguar XK150, XK150 S, MkIX, Mk2, MkX, E-type Series 1 and S-type.

Subject to providing documentation that confirms proof of vehicle ownership, customers can choose to retain the serial number from their original engine block, which will be stamped on the new casting with an additional asterisk denoting the new block is a replacement item. Alternatively, the new block can be stamped with a new unique serial number.

The new 3.8-liter Jaguar XK engine blocks are priced at  $17,914 and come with a 12 months Jaguar parts and accessories warranty and certificate of authenticity, exclusively from Jaguar Classic.
