1966 Jaguar S Type (Mk2) 3.8L

The Jaguar S-type 3.8 litre appeared alongside the 3.4 version at the cars launch in 1963. The new S-type owed much to its Mk II stable-mates as well as the much larger Mk X saloon of the same period. The S-type was aimed at Jaguar drivers looking for slightly more sophistication than the Mk II could offer, the cars independent rear suspension and different styling cues highlighted the luxury side of the cars character and played down the sporty image of the Mk II. The 3.8 version of the S-ty...Share on FacebookShare on TwitterPin on Pinterest
