The short simple easy description typical of the vague 2 line ones often seen on here would be: 2003 Jaguar S Type R - Rare car - White with Tan Interior - Good condition - nice car, runs good

Now if you want the more detailed description with specifics that can only be provided by those who are familiar with most every aspect of their car (unlike most sellers) read below

Jaguar S Type R - Supercharged Intercooled Fuel Injected Dual Overhead Cam V8 4.2 Liter 420HP, 6 Speed ZF Gearbox, 3.31 Rear Gear Ratio, Brembo Brakes, Huge Tires, CATS SuperSport Active Computer Suspension in a Light Weight good handling Car, Was the worlds fastest "Saloon" (4 Door Sedan) until the Bentley Continental Speed dethroned it - Platform is capable of 191 MPH in stock form - read below

This car has had NO MODIFICATIONS - not molested or beaten up - Adult owned - If you want one that a loser hasn't gotten their hands on yet here it is - NO check engine light or codes - has passed and will pass inspection

From the Jaguar Club - “The top speed was limited to 155 mph. With the electronic limiter removed, the S-Type R could reach 191 mph, and with simple supercharger pulley upgrades and ECU modifications, can be tuned to produce in excess of 500 bhp with a top speed in excess of 200 mph”

This is a VERY rare car - few even know about it - only 1100 produced World Wide for 2003 and a lucky couple hundred or so in the USA - Less than 8000 produced worldwide for the entire 7 year production run makes this an extremely RARE collector car by any standards - Less than half made it to the USA and a good number worldwide were soon written off by unqualified drivers - Many people selling base jaguar S Types nowdays in an attempt to increase comparable value list them as R (which they are not) thus skewing the common understanding of the rarity and value of these cars - I have only seen a couple true Supercharged R cars among the hundreds of S Types currently listed for sale as Rs

Extremely fast car - engine similar to Shelby GT or other Mustang Cobra Eaton Supercharged Cars - not for amateurs - no test drives without deal finalized - mild realistic demo with me at the wheel - cash only at my BANK during business hours

Car is loaded with every single option, sunroof, handling package with wide tires, everything including NAV and touchscreen that fully functions

Car is in very good condition but not perfect - minor wear and a few little dinglets - Clean Carfax, Clear Title, great maintenance history, US Air Force Pilot and American Airlines Pilot prior owners documented - car is in WAY better shape than most your will find - still has some typical minor Jaguar quirks - buyer should be familiar and aware of them before considering any of the specialty performance cars like these whether Jag or other brand - I am savvy and well versed on these cars but can't hold a buyers hand - I will relay all I know and point you in the right directions to learn more yourself - minor wear for age and especially for the type of car - 136K mileage and will go up as I love to drive it

Has had over $7000 of service and new parts in the last year or so as a measure of preservation and updating including ZF Factory Transmission service and electronics package, pan, filter and fluid, reprogram and road test and proper relearn procedures - the car screams and accelerates like it should with zero excuses - It is a serious and capable opponent to most on the road

Many recent suspension items including most everything that rolls, turns, pivots, or swings is new and has been gone through - and I have included simple pics of the suspension uprights to show the mirror finish in the bearing bores and condition of the aluminum - very clean underneath in all the tell tale places that gauge the conditions in which aluminum components have been operated and stored

Have Window Sticker - price was right at $70K in 2003 after fees - have documentation

This car is not perfect - anyone selling a car like this no matter what the year, brand, make or model and claims it is is either lying or a used car salesman - there are problems typical to these cars (and all others of this nature) that are well covered on forums - it is the nature of the beast - the difference between an abused POS car of this type owned by a person who doesn't care or can't afford to maintain it and a decent example, like my car, is in the continuous discovery, understanding and addressing of such issues - I will provide all info I have to a new buyer - I have owned many cars of this type so I have been through most of it and the current "condition" of a car like this is ongoing and not a static rating
Cash sale - no trades unless it is so far in my favor I could not possibly say no otherwise I would just keep this one - I have yet to see an offer like that on anything I have put up for sale, but who knows - maybe someone will surprise me - Thanks

Serious only please - provide phone for reply
