Star Wars star buys S-Type R
Toronto, Ontario – Hayden Christensen, the young Canadian actor who starred in the recently released movies Star Wars Episode II, and Life as a House, as well as the West End play “This Is Our Youth” in London, England, has bought a new 2003 S-Type R.
Christensen took delivery at Budds’ Imported Cars in Oakville, Ontario, where owner and dealer principal, Terry Budd, handed over the keys personally.
“It’s exciting for us to have such a young, well-known star like Hayden driving the S-Type R,” said Budd. “This shows that our cars are appealing to a broader spectrum of customers. It’s a real pleasure to have Hayden as a Jaguar owner.”
The 400 horsepower supercharged S-Type R model is the most powerful production car ever to be produced by the Coventry, UK, manufacturer – It’s priced at $89,950.
