4610 Pet Lane
A sleek black European sports sedan that comes loaded with features and a supercharged V8 is rarely this affordable. So dig into all the details on a well-presented and luxuriously-appointed 2003 Jaguar S-type R.
This car is designed to remind us why Jaguars are both fast and beautiful. Its quad headlights, oval grille, sculpted hood, and horizon-like silhouette are a cool reminder of the Jaguar sedans of the 1960s. And the Ebony Black paint gives it a sophisticated shine while also infusing some attitude. The chainmesh front, bright dual exhaust tips, rear spoiler, and big 18-inch alloys are all part of the package that announce the high-performance R model. But what you'll love the most on this Jag is the overall quality that shows this car retains its a powerful and premium presence.
Inside is exactly what you would expect from Jaguar. The exterior black returns for accenting, and now its joined by a beautiful contrasting of tan leather and blond wood for a high-quality and thoughtful presentation. This S-Type is loaded with all the features you want in a modern car, including power seats, heated seats, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, power tilt wheel, cruise control, power sunroof, and dual zone climate control. Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo is also a modern touchscreen infotainment unit. 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 Jaguar's 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 across the Jaguar line: the 4.2-liter supercharged V8. It's the same 400 horsepower motor that made the full-size Jaguar XJR a legend, and so it's awesome to have in the smaller S-Type. It's a true performance heart, but it never loses that smooth Jag feeling. The same goes for the six-speed automatic transmission that has enough gears to always have you cruising comfortable, but it's instantly ready for a quick kick-down into serious power. While this will make you a BMW M5 contender, the fully independent suspension seems to know that a Jaguar owner demands that all situations remains comfortable. Power steering, nice tread of the Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, and four-wheel power disc brakes are all part of a package that knows how to balance true luxury with outstanding power.
Complete with owner's manual and averaging less than 4,000 miles annually, this affordable S-Type R 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!!!
