1998 Jaguar XKR 4L Coupe
Engine: 8 cylinder 4000cc
The release of the XK8 in 1996 was big news for Jaguar enthusiasts- if you wanted a new 2 door Jaguar before now you would have to settle for the XJS, which while cutting edge when first released in 1975 had aged significantly by the mid 90’s. At first it was only available with a naturally aspirated 4L but in 1998, the XKR was released. This added a super charger and 70 extra horsepower to the already adequate 300 found in the XK8, bigger brakes and a different suspension set-up.
Cosmetically, there is more than just a hint of E Type in the XKR- the wide mouth front grill and shapely bonnet complete with power bulge and louvres- many journalists said at the time it was the true successor to the E- Type.
Available for purchase we have this Jaguar XKR coupe with only 54000 miles and 2 owners from new. Finished in Sapphire blue with Ivory leather interior, this is a very early car was first registered in October 1998- just 4 months after the beginning of production. The car is in lovely condition both inside and out, and has been used as a second car throughout the last keeper’s ownership. We have a whole file filled with invoices and receipts for works done, the seven stamps in the book is backed up by paperwork including a number of further services not represented by stamps. The car has just had a fresh MOT and 2 new tyres on the rear. This must be one of the lowest mileage early cars out there so don’t miss out on this real investment opportunity.
