A twin-turbodiesel V10 derived from the Ford Modular or Volvo Modular family would have worked better to accommodate for the S-Type's steel frame. It was a heavier car and poorer handler than both the aluminum XJR and the original XJR.

FUN FACT: No S-Type Rs ever actually made 390-400 hp. It was just a marketing ploy made by Jaguar to compete in the M5/E55 crowd. The fastest ones did around 13.8-14.0sec in the 1/4-mile at around 102mph average. The most powerful ones made around 330-360 hp at the crank. Not one acceleration test showed that the STR could rev to 6100 rpm, it was more like 5250-5500 rpm.

What was "supposed" to be an E39 M5 and W210/W211 E55 AMG rival, was really an E60 545i and W211 E500 Mk1 rival

You are referring to the pre facelift. The facelift had more power. Also in 1st and 2nd gears it shifts but in all other gears it revs to redline.

In EU these cars are declared as pure 400 HP machines.
