Jaguar Mark 2 redesigned by Jamia 'Ex Student Syyed Sahil Agha

Delhi :Now A unique Jaguar Mark 2 redesigned by Jamia Millia Islamia University Ex Student Syyed Sahil Agha, and reengineered by leading restorers at his workshop.

After launching this car,sahil has successfully represented it at The Statements Car relly.

Sahil's workshop complex for restoration of vintage is one of the biggest of its kind in the Okhla New Delhi. Fitted out to the highest standards and with new paint and trim facility, it provides good  reproduction space, allowing engineers to cover every aspect of a car’s restoration in-house, except for chrome plating.

This exciting 18 month project has endeavoured to retain the integrity of the original Mark 2, whilst making it even more exciting in shape and performance.

Sahil said: “This is a very personal statement. A long held notion that, although the Mark 2 has always been a beautiful car, it could be even more exciting in shape and performance. Whilst maintaining the purity of the car’s form, I wanted to add a number of modern twists to the design. Simplification and clarity was my objective.”

The car has been redesigned by me for my personal or professional use, it now boasts a huge number of aesthetic and technical modifications that make this a practical, reliable, enjoyable and exciting everyday vehicle.

Commenting on the specifications, sahil said: “The stance of the Mark 2 is already excellent, but I wished to make it even better. The car’s form is now 30mm lower and sits on 17” split rim spoke wheels. The bumpers are now part of the overall form. It is a fine balance of extracting and adding.

“I have always loved traditional louvres as seen on many older cars. Four louvres appear on the side of the car to add to that sense of power and ‘something different’. Of course they had to work, so they have been designed in a low-pressure area for a better internal airflow from the modified engine.”

The suspension has been designed and reengineered by me and my team. The front incorporates a bespoke power assisted rack, uprated coil springs, roll bar and wishbone bushes, adjustable dampers and solid subframe mountings, repositioned to improve anti-dive characteristics. The unique independent rear suspension now includes uprated coil springs, blade control wishbones, outboard disc brakes, an anti-roll bar and adjustable dampers.

Sahil’s cars have won many awards and the sahil has been responsible for restoring many of Jaguar’s most historic cars in recent years. 

Sahil especially proud of his apprenticeship work with young people learning their trades in trimming, auto electrics, bodywork, paintwork and general mechanical skills.
