2002 Jaguar XKR 4L Convertible
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.
This car has spent almost all it's life living on the south coast. The previous owner to ourselves bought the car in 2005 and only used it during the summer months. The car has been kept garaged since new and the body work is in exemplary condition with no rust to be found anywhere. The service book displays 10 stamps exclusively from Jaguar main dealers last carried out by Westover Jaguar less than 500 miles ago in 2018. The car was treated to a new air conditioning condenser 3 years ago (£950!) and blows ice cold as a result.
The car comes with it's original 3 keys and will be supplied to it's next owner with a full MOT for piece of mind.
