Lot 177 – Jaguar S Type 4.2 V8 (Non Supercharged R lookalike)
Estimated Value – £2,500 – £3,500
Just a ridiculous amount of car for no money at all. No not a classic yet I hear you say. Neither were Xk’s not so long ago and even XJS’s have only recently reached true classic status!
With its very retro looks this particular example benefits from having the later 4.2 V8 engine, this unit produces a quoted 280 Horse Power, more than enough to recapture the essence of Jaguars gone by, a proper “Sporting Saloon” and the likeness does not stop there, sit in its very well appointed leather and wood finished interior and the quality is apparent. Yes it has all the electrical extras you want but you are looking a two traditional clocks set in front of a leather and wood trimmed steering wheel.
Bodywork is very nice and at some point has had all the badging etc normally found on the even more powerful “Supercharged “ version, this car is not supercharged just to make sure no one makes that mistake.
Coming with both its keys and a new MOT this car will serve somebody well for years to come. Best of all though is all this power, leather, wood and prestige is available at the price of an average 5 year old Ford Fiesta!
