S-TYPE buyers wanting a more racy exterior appearance can now choose to specify Jaguar’s exclusive range of body exterior styling products, known as the ‘Sports Collection’, which makes its debut at the Canary Wharf Motor Show next week (13 June, 2005).
With a ‘Sports Collection’ body styling package already available on the X-TYPE, this new addition to the range provides a stylish differentiation for the S-TYPE and adds yet another exciting dimension to Jaguar’s portfolio of body accessories.
Reflecting the dynamic qualities the S-TYPE offers, the body styling package gives the car a more modern, aggressive, and sportier appearance. Designed to reflect and accentuate the dynamic qualities and sleek, strong profile that the S-TYPE offers, the body styling package uses the cars existing flowing lines to project its athleticism and performance. This ultimately makes a dramatic but subtle impression on both passengers and passers-by.
Black front upper and lower grilles and a rear lower black mesh grille emphasise the S-TYPE’s sporty appearance. Lowered side sill appliqués and new front and rear lower valances ensure the more squat, purposeful stance is noticeable from all angles.
The ‘Sports Collection’ S-TYPE also gets a new front valance with chrome bezels around the fog lights, a more pronounced rear boot lid spoiler as well as new exhaust tailpipe finishers, giving the car an aura of self-confidence. Stylish, new 18″ Proteus alloy wheels complete the look.
As with all of the ‘Sports Collection’ body styling packages, engineering integrity has been maintained and the components have been developed for ease of installation onto vehicles and all parts utilise current fixings.
Jaguar Design Director, Ian Callum said: “We wanted to design a range of accessory products to visually emphasise the stance and presence of the S-TYPE. The enhancements we have made for the S-TYPE body styling package give the car a more aggressive and purposeful look by accentuating the sleek, strong profile of the S-TYPE and combining both classical characteristics of the car with new Jaguar design aspects.”
Available from September, the full ‘Sports Collection’ package can be ordered for all existing S-TYPE petrol and diesel saloon vehicles – or retro-fitted – for £2,000 excluding wheels.
