Write a review!
The performance-oriented Jaguar S-Type R receives a few minor exterior and interior design upgrades for 2008, but the real story remains its impressive 4.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, which produces a whopping 400 horsepower. Dropping all that muscle under the hood of the elegant S-Type R results in a truly distinctive super-luxury sedan.
In addition to its powerful engine, the S-Type R comes equipped with a number of unique features designed to set the vehicle apart from its siblings. Those features include leather-trimmed seats embossed with the R logo, a leather-wrapped R-Performance steering wheel, a chrome-and-leather R-Performance shift knob, R-Performance brakes, and 19-inch Barcelona wheels, as well as satin mahogany wood trim, stainless steel exhaust tips, and black window surrounds.
Drivers can also opt for an R luxury package that includes soft-grain leather seats, burl walnut wood trim, a wood- and leather-trimmed steering wheel, and premium footwell rugs.
Other high-end features in the S-Type R include a DVD-based navigation system, Xenon headlights with automatic leveling, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and a 10-speaker, 320-watt Alpine sound system with an in-dash CD player and a trunk-mounted six-disc CD changer.
Safety features include Dynamic Stability Control and an Adaptive Restraint Technology System, which makes adjustments to safety systems and air-bag energy depending on the position and weight of the driver and passenger. Also included are Forward and Reverse Park Control, which use sensors to alert drivers of objects in front of and behind the car when parking.
This overview covers the R trim only.
