. The S-type was introduced as an additional model to the Mk II but with the benefit of the independent rear suspension from the Mk 10. It retained some of the character of the Mk II and had ample performance courtesy of the 3.4 or 3.8-litre, six-cylinder XK engine. The 420 was developed directly from the S-type but resembled the Mk 10 at the front and rear. The special version of the 4.2-litre engine gave the model its name. The equivalent Daimler, the Sovereign, bridged the gap between the 2 1/2-litre saloon and the big Majestic Major. This is a book of contemporary road tests, specification and technical data, new model introductions, driver's impressions, long term tests and buying used guide. Models include: 3.4 and 3.8 S-type, 420, 420 automatic.
