pre production 1999 S type can anyone confirm this?


Recommended Posts

We have inherited a Jaguar S type which my father-in-law had made notes that it was registered 4 months before the Browns Lane production line started building the S type.

It was owned by Jaguar for over a year and he thinks used as a prototype test car at Jaguar.

The VIN is SAJAC01FXXGL20900  he noted the X means The Whitley Engineering Centre in Abbey Rd.

Can anyone confirm this? and have any further info please?  The car is now for sale.

Welcome to the club, Ivan.

The s type was designed in 1999 and 53,000 were sold in 1999  ---  this could mean that the 1999 model could have "overlapped" over the year as often happens.

The book below covers the S Type and there was a lot of research done inspite of the 1989 instead of the correct 1999.  Otherwise the research was exact and I say that because I wrote the book and spent 2 years doing it.

If you want to buy the book look at "Transporterama"
