The acquisition of Jaguar by Ford in 1989 reinvigorated the desire to develop a smaller saloon to complement the large XJ and challenge the likes of BMW’s 5-series. This finally came to fruition with the launch, 10 years later, of the S-Type. Named in homage to the 1963-68 S-Type, the car featured the retro-inspired styling that was in vogue at the time, while actually being an all-new and thoroughly modern car. Available with a range of smooth and powerful V6 and V8 engines, the car was highly praised on launch for its luxurious interior, refinement, composed handling and superb ride. Indeed, it was considered by many experts to be the class-leader – no mean feat when competing against the long-established might of the German giants. The most desirable S-Type was launched in 2002 – the 400bhp R. Powered by a hand-built supercharged 4.2-litre V8, the car was blisteringly quick and had handling to match, and like the less powerful models, gained much acclaim from the motoring press.
This 2002 automatic R is in good all-round condition. However, although with a current MOT, it has been in storage for some time, so some light recommissioning and servicing would be advisable before much use. It comes with a service book with eight stamps, two keys, some bills and a V5C.
