The Appeal


The S-Type was a more sophisticated development of Jaguar's MK2 - a more luxurious, comfortable car with adapted suspension taken from the decidedly top-of-the-line Mark X. It hit the market in 1963, and for the next five years continued to sit comfortably as Jaguar's mid-market motor. 

This Italian market example was laid down in April 1965, and has gone on to have only 3 former registered keepers. For the past two years, it has been located in Athens, Greece, where it has been used exclusively for shows, photoshoots, and video clips. The result is a top-notch example of a distinguished 60s-style classic.
