More Power for the 2006 S-Type R

Source: Jaguar | Published: Wed Dec 21, 2005

In keeping with all of Jaguar’s 2006 sedan line-up, the S-TYPE features stylish, new chrome mesh grille inserts. Additional, new features include a one-touch power moonroof for the S-TYPE 3.0 (previously an option); front park control for the VDP Edition; and navigation, Bluetooth wireless connectivity for mobile phone and front park control for the supercharged S-TYPE R.

Like the exterior, the new interior sees further improvements in material and build quality. Sporting luxury is the key-note here, in a cabin infused with Jaguar quality, from the cleverly engineered, driver-orientated ergonomics to the satisfying feel of the controls and trim. The new S-TYPE also offers an even broader catalogue of comfort and convenience features, from new alloy wheel styles to advanced cruise control.

The S-TYPE's 4.2-liter four-cam 32-valve V8, with Variable Camshaft Phasing, is mechanically supercharged in the range-topping S-TYPE R. It is very light due to the extensive use of aluminum, but extremely strong. Its best-in-class stiffness minimizes engine noise and increases reliability, while direct-acting aluminum bucket tappets need no adjustment for the life of the engine.

The supercharged S-TYPE R version develops 400 bhp at 6100 rev/min and 413 lb-ft of torque at only 3500 rev/min. At least 86 percent of the peak torque figure is available all the way from 2000 rpm through to maximum engine speed - and that massive flexibility remains a defining characteristic of S-TYPE R performance. ...Jaguar S-Type R: Page 2
