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 MKII stable-mates as well as the much larger MKX of the same period. The S-type was aimed at Jaguar drivers looking for slightly more sophistication than was offered by the MKII and 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 MKII. The 3.8 version of the S-type provided sparkling performance and could reach a maximum of 125mph. The S-type used a modified Mk II bodyshell, which had unique front and rear styling and included a sumptuous interior. Production of the S-type ceased in 1968 when its replacement, the 420, arrived.
