1998-2008 Jaguar S-type specifications Classic and Performance Car

The S-type's retro styling wasn't a hit when it was new, but is starting to gain a classic status of its own.


A car that was styled to evoke the classic Mk2 and S-type Jags of the 1960s is now of an age where it is starting to gain classic appeal all of its own. The earliest ‘New S-types’ are now almost 20 years old, and with a choice of lusty 240bhp V6 or 281bhp V8 petrol engines and lashings of wood and leather, the best are excellent value right now, while the 390bhp supercharged R (0-60mph in 5.6sec) launched in 2002 is a real Q-car. The first cars suffered engine bore wear and patchy build quality, so buy the newest you can afford.
