And in doing so, they came up with one of the ugliest versions of an already relatively ugly British creation, the Jaguar S-Type R.

Panzani Design is an Italian tuning firm, one that’s not very successful or popular and somehow we can see why that is.

As a general rule of thumb, whenever you talk about Italian styling of various vehicles you’re thinking about some gorgeous looking vehicle.

Not so this time, The Jaguar S Type R was an esthetically challenged vehicle to start with and it’s now become something much worse.

If and once you get past the truly hideous appearance, you will find out that the underpinnings are mostly unchanged apart from the widebody kit.

That’s because you get the same gearbox, the same 400 horsepower 4.2 liter supercharged V8 engine.

No alteration has come to the suspension system of the Jaguar S Type R and if you were hoping that the interior is still as sumptuous as it was before and features wood or something classy, you’d be wrong there too.

In turning it into the Vitange GT, the chaps at Panzani Design turned the Jaguar S-Type’s interior into something filled with carbon fiber and hideously quilted leather everywhere.
