Jaguar 1966  S Type 4dr Sdn Blk

In 1963 Jaguar decided to introduce a new variant of its popular Mk II model, the luxurious S-type saloon. The S-type came with either a 3.4 or 3.8 litre XK engine, however Jaguar decided not to offer a 2.4 version as it did not really fit the new cars image profile.

The S-type featured a modified version of the Mk II bodyshell with unique front and rear ends added. The front had its own distinctive grille, shrouded headlamps and a slim line bumper. The rear of the S-type looked very similar to the large Mk X saloon and had a similar independent suspension design which gave a class leading ride.

Most buyers opted for the more powerful 3.8 version, although the 3.4 was by no means under-powered. The 3.4 could set quite a fast pace and although not as quick as the Mk II 3.4, the car handled extremely well thanks to its new suspension layout.
