2004 Jaguar XKR 4.2L Convertible
Engine: 8 cylinder 4200cc
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.
Offered for sale we have one of the last of the original X100 shape XKRs. This black convertible car has only 53000 miles from new backed up with a service book containing 8 stamps, last of which carried out in our own specialist workshop. It possibly the highest spec XKR's we have ever seen here at Beaulieu Garage, freshly refurbished 20 inch Montreal alloy wheels, factory upgraded black recaro heated leather seats (A very rare option!), rear parking sensors, CAT's suspension system and Jaguar sat nav.
Good low mileage examples of these cars are highly collectible and represent excellent investments.
