What you see pictured here is the creation of a relatively unknown Italian tuning firm called Panzani Design. Named the Vintage GT, it’s an extreme take on the Jaguar S-Type R, which was the flagship version of the series powered by a 4.2-liter supercharged V8 kicking out 400HP.
Whether you like Panzani Design’s styling approach or not, one thing is for sure: there’s no way you can ignore it. The tuning company starts with the exterior of the Jaguar S-Type R by adding a new wide body kit with prominent wheel arches that house 20-inch alloy wheels shod in tires size 255/35 R20 up front and 305/30 R20 at the back.
The car also gets a new front end with a carbon fiber bonnet and bumper trim, and side air vents from the XKR. At the back, Panzani Design eliminated the bumper adding a massive rear diffuser, new circular LED tail lamps and a new carbon fiber boot that incorporates a spoiler. The race-spec mirrors, exposed fuel cap, side skirts and the matte grey paint finish complete the look.
There was a lot of work done in the interior, which is swathed in leather and Alcantara with contrasting seams. The cabin also features a pair of sports seats, carbon fiber trim and a newly styled three-spoke sports steering wheel.
Pangani Design did not say if there are any modifications under the hood nor did it release pricing info on the Vintage GT.
