Here's a V8 executive-level sedan with unique styling from one of the most prestigious luxury brands in the world. So it's surprising that this 2000 Jaguar S-Type can be so affordable.
The S-Type was a true hit when it first hit the scene in 2000. Its quad headlights, oval grille, sculpted hood, and horizon-like silhouette made for a design that was a cool reminder of the Jaguar sedans of the 1960s that established the marque as both fast and beautiful. But more than just a great looking sheetmetal, this first-year S-Type has seen some amazing care over the years. The original Spindrift White retains an amazing gloss and shine; the fenders and bumpers have not been subjected to parking lot battles; and the 16-inch allow wheels have avoided the curbs. So the overall appearance of this S-Type is exactly what you want in something interesting for today and collectable for tomorrow.
Inside is exactly what you would expect from Jaguar. The tan leather and blond wood paneling are the perfect combo to brighten up your drive even if it's a dreary English day. This S-Type is loaded with all the features you want in a modern car, including power seats, power windows, power locks, power tilt wheel, premium AM/FM/cassette stereo, power sunroof, cruise control, and dual zone climate control. A modern classic also means modern safety features like dual front air bags, side air bags, and ABS. From the driver's seat this is the perfect mix of sporting and luxury with many of your main controls mounted directly to the steering wheel, and your right hand gets the iconic J-gate shifter.
If you thought the interior was loaded, just wait until you see the engine bay. This S-Type came with the largest motor available in 2000, which means it actually came from its bigger brother, the XJ8. Under that leaper bonnet (hood) is a very tidy DOHC 4.0-liter fuel-injected V8. This motor is famous for combining the engineering talents of Ford with Jaguar's flair for driving passion. It purrs with buttery smoothness but can growl with the biggest cats when you plant your right foot. This luxury sedan was built to make your heart race like a sports car, and so the motor is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The European engineered fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes means this executive sedan is just at home on the backroads as it is on your morning commute.
Compete with owner's manual and averaging less than 4,200 miles annually, this affordable S-Type is at a crossroads. Do you collect this future classic or do you drive this modern luxury car? We recommend you do both. Call today!!!
