Benefitting from recent full professional detailing and machine polish, the XKR now gleams from its factory Liquid Silver paintwork. Having the overall appearance of a car half the age and mileage, the standard of the bodywork is far superior to the majority we have seen, testament to careful and diligent, long term ownership. All panels are straight, and thankfully, dent or scratch free. Subtle chrome highlights remain bright and elevate the appearance of the much-admired Sir Ian Callum original design. Low and sleek, with more than a glance back to the seminal E-Type, having the wide gape front grill, the XKR manages to be sensuous, purposeful, yet still muscular and aggressive. Rear twin chrome exhausts, R Design designation highlights to brake callipers and boot, large boot spoiler, front lip splitter, chrome edged front brake cooling ducts, Supercharged etched twin bonnet “nostrils”, and rear LED light clusters are instantly recognisable as a statement of intent and advancement in Jaguar production, all clues to the XKR’s capabilities.
Full Warm Charcoal leather interior with contrasting silver sticking remain in superb order throughout. The high standard extends to dashboard top, centre console, door cards and caps. All surfaces, including the leather steering wheel are in a fine condition. The perforated leather front seats are extremely supportive with a multitude of adjustments, showing little, or no wear and capable of accommodating even the tallest driver in comfort. Even the vulnerable driver’s seat bolsters are not crushed or damaged, evidence of light and careful use. Rear seats are as new. The Alcantara headlining and all floor covering are again in top condition. All instruments and switch gear operates correctly. The A/C climate control efficiently provides a chilly breeze when required. Being the later model, the interior benefits from a design update, with Piano Black and machine aluminium surfaces, sloping centre fascia with touch screen operations, and rising rotary gear selector lifted from the XF model, a vast improvement. The red glowing push-button start is a nice touch, while the heated leather multi-functional steering wheel is full adjustable. Cosseted and comfortable, with a Bowers and Wilkins surround system, the cabin exudes quality.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE
Jaguars epoxy-bonded and riveted aluminium monocoque construction, is 30% stiffer, but more importantly, 100KG’s lighter than previous XK. Weighing in at just 1753 KG’s. With new adaptive precision suspension system, using Bilstein dampers and active differential with variable 0-100% lock-up, known as Jaguar active differential control system, spring rates are increased by 30%, and steering rack ratio is 10% quicker. The all new AJ – V8 Gen 111 R, direct injection, Roots Style Supercharged engine, develops a monstrous 510 bhp, propelling the XKR from 0-60 mph in just 4.6 secs and a top speed limited to 174 mph. However, this doesn’t tell the whole story. With 461lb ft of torque on tap from 2500 /5500 rpm, the jaguar fires from 50 to 70 mph in just 1.9 secs. Driven through the rear wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission, known as the Jaguar Drive Control System. Speed sensitive power steering assists the driver while parking and manoeuvring, then adds a positive security at higher speeds. A car with a schizophrenic personality, calm soothing and benign, until provoked, when it becomes demonically quick and visceral. The accompanying sound-track has few, if any, peers, certainly in this prices bracket. The more hard-core version of the XKR is a pleasure to own and drive, whether negotiating town traffic or un-leashed where it belongs.
Still representing, what must be, one of the greatest every day, usable Super-GT bargains available on the market today. Costing over £75k new and having been discontinued in July 2014, and not replaced, could the Jaguar XKR be the next collectable Modern Classic? Strongly recommended before everyone catches-on, and prices subsequently rise.
The Supercharged lightweight XKR 5.0 V8 Coupe, was described by Autocar Magazine as “A revelation, turns what is an extremely good GT into both an excellent and extremely fast !!”
