Jaguar Mk II 3.8 Coombs (1960) in Grey (1:18 scale)
- The Jaguar Mk 1 had been successful in many forms of motor sport & so, when the Mk 2 was launched it attracted a lot of attention from the racing fraternity. In fact, the Mk 2 went on to totally dominate saloon car racing in the early sixties, having earned its first outright win in the hands of Sir Gawaine Baillie in 1960 at Snetterton. The two most successful privateer teams were Equippe Endeavour & Coombs Racing. Over the winter of 1961, the Coombs mechanics built up BUY 12 to be driven by its two leading drivers for 1962, Roy Salvadori & Graham Hill. That season, Coombs" pearl grey cars swept all before them. Hill secured first places at Oulton Park, Aintree, Goodwood, Silverstone, Mallory Park & Snetterton to become that season"s outstanding Jaguar driver. Salvadori also pulled in some good results, taking BUY 12 to first place at Crystal Palace in June. For the following season, Coombs Racing focussed on other projects, but their two 3.8 Jaguars, BUY 1 & BUY 12 stand as two of the most famous of all the racing Mk 2s. BUY 12 can still occasionally be seen today lapping at historic events around the world.
