The S-Type: The Jaguar Flagship of the 60s

In 1963, the Jaguar S-Type was presented at the London Motor Show. Even if the front body was visually closely based on the MK 2, the car was very independent. The completely redesigned rear adopted the independent suspension from the E-Type. With barely changed wheelbase, but visually based on the Mark 10 premium class saloon, the S-Type of the 1960s was a luxurious and dynamic car to drive. In this way, Jaguar company boss Sir William established a completely new vehicle class.

The familiar XK engines with 3.4 and 3.8 litre displacement were available as engine options. The S-Type was aimed at the upmarket competition from the continent and was primarily intended to appeal to Mercedes and BMW customers. The British classic also cost quite a bit: 22,750 marks had to be paid for the S-Type when it was launched in Germany in 1963 - about five times as much as for a VW Beetle. But a ride in the S-Type also gives you a trip back in time to the good old England of the Swinging Sixties!
