In the summer of 1939 an early Mk I K9788 was fitted with a new version of the Merlin, the XII. With the success of the trial it was decided to use this version of the Merlin in the Mk. II which, it was decided, would be the first version to be produced exclusively by the huge new Nuffield "shadow" factory at Castle Bromwich.
Chief among the changes was the upgraded 1,175 hp (876 kW) Merlin XII engine.
