Re: Alfa WILL use a Jaguar platform...
There seems to be no end of confusion here. I was under the impression that the S-type carried the same suspension componentry as the Lincoln which was created in Dearborn. Not sure there was much Jaguar adaptation.
The other combined effort with other parts of the Ford empire was the X-type which is indeed a Mondeo underneath.
The current XK and XJ models share their suspension, drivetrains and some of the under stucture, both being aluminium. I think the old XK was more S-type. I understand that in terms of performance and road manners the new XK has benefitted substantially from this change.
Doesn't say that in the manual
