When Jaguar resurrected a mid-1960s nameplate to design the Jag of the new millennium, it took several styling cues from the Mark II and original S-Type, giving the new model a stunning heritage as well as a sleek and luxurious look.
Even though it shares the basic foundation as the highly rated Lincoln LS, the fine engineering and careful tuning – along with its classic design – mark it as a true Jaguar and one beautiful, quick cat!
There is no mistaking this stunning S-Type as anything other than a Jag. In addition to the iconic jaguar hood ornament, the design features two large headlamps with two smaller ones flanking them and the signature oval radiator grille that extends prominently forward.
Of course, everything is original, including the beautiful paint of MDV Seafrost Metallic, as evidenced by the body tag attached to the door jamb. The car inside and out is in exceptional condition. There are no scuff marks anywhere, including the alloy wheels.
And it’s just as beautiful on the inside as the exterior, sporting smart original Ivory Leather Connolly upholstery accented by light-colored wood trim and an especially beautiful combination of leather and wood steering wheel. The interior is in excellent condition, as is all the rubber, brightwork and carpets.
It’s easy to see why this vehicle sold new in 2002 for $49,580. You’ll find all the features expected in a premium luxury car, including the standard equipment and sport package additions:
But it’s not just another pretty face; the ride is smooth and powerful, thanks to the 4.0 L V8 and 5-speed transmission that translate into 281 hp and 6,100 rpm.
Even more exciting is the fact that the car has been in the same family since new, as evidenced by the service book and title. The car carries a clean Carfax and was only driven in good weather. Especially note the undercarriage photos in the photo gallery showing virtually no dirt and definitely no signs of wear, tear or corrosion.
The spare tire and tools have never been out of the trunk, and the original Jaguar CD comes with the car, as are all the original manuals from the Jaguar dealership.
There cannot be a better Jaguar S-Type in existence. This striking car is ready to drive and show for many years of excitement and pleasure.
