The Jaguar XKR was a more powerful, sporting version of the Jaguar XK8 and first appeared in 1998, 2 years after the XK8 made its debut. The XK8 replaced the long-running XJS model and the styling harked back to the E-Type of the Sixties – swooping body lines and large, forward-hinged bonnet. It was available in both coupé and convertible form. The XKR used the same 4.0 litre, 32-valve V8 engine as its sister model but added a supercharger – boosting the claimed power output to 370 bhp which, mated to its Mercedes-sourced 5-speed gearbox, allowed the car to reach its top speed (limited to 155 mph) with alacrity (0-60 mph in a little over 5 seconds). Visually, the XKR gained cooling louvres in the bonnet, a mesh grille, small bootlid spoiler and 18” alloy wheels. The interior was typically Jaguar - sumptuously furnished with leather and wood trim. This car was first registered in September 1999 and spent much of its life in the UK, prior to being exported to, and re-registered in, Jersey. With only 2 owners, the second has had the Jaguar since 2002. It has seen limited use during its life with just 64,000 miles showing and has been well-cared for throughout. We have the Jaguar service record from purchase up to 2015 and invoices for subsequent work.
A 1990’s high performance Jaguar – and it will not disappoint in that respect even today. Well maintained and with a good service record, this is a very clean and well-presented car, ready for regular use with a new owner. The car is currently Jersey registered and we can assist with overseas shipping and importation processes if required, but any import duties and transport costs would be additional to the price listed.
Very good condition – the bodywork is almost unmarked and the bright red paintwork gleams. There is some very minor paint chipping on a couple of the alloy wheels.
The XKR cabin is a luxurious place to be and very well finished. The leather and wood trim is in very good condition throughout – the leather seats showing just a little patination. There are two rear seats – but these are best considered as optional accommodation.
This is a very fast car! As might be anticipated, given careful ownership, this car is in excellent mechanical fettle. It drives very well, with everything working as it should.
