About the Jaguar XK Series
In 1996 the Jaguar XK8 was introduced as successor to the XJ-S. The XK8 was available from the moment of introduction in two body styles, a convertible and a coupé. The special design was immediately well received. The powerful and fluid lines was a subtle reference to the Jaguar legends of the past, such as the XK120 and of course the E-Type. Sports cars from Jaguar are known for their graceful looks in combination with comfortable and smooth driving characteristics. The XK8 clearly embroided on this and is therefore a real Gran Turismo.
With the XK8 also new 4.0 liters AJ-V8 was introduced. According to Jaguar, the 290hp strong power source provided the best combination between refinement, performance and fuel economy. The maximum torque of the engine is already available from 1400 rpm, resulting in a particularly smooth and relaxed driving experience.
It was to be expected that Jaguar would ever place the Supercharged V8 from the XJR sedan in the XK8 coupe and convertible. This resulted in the astonishingly fast XKR, the fastest passenger car, except for the XJ220, which Jaguar had ever made before. The XKR is immediately recognizable for connoisseurs by the wire-mesh grille, the louvres in the bonnet, the subtle spoiler on the boot lid and the larger rims and brakes.
In 2002 the XKR received a major upgrade, in which the highly developed second generation V8 engine with a capacity of 4.2 liters and 400 HP was mounted, in combination with a new six-speed automatic transmission from ZF. This change made the XKR even more powerful, faster and smoother than its predecessor. At a very hefty surcharge, the XKR was also available with a greatly improved chassis, Brembo high-performance brakes, quick steering, 22 "two-piece BBS rims and special Recaro sports seats. These so-called R-Performance options transformed the XKR in such a way that the performance level and handling of the car were brought to an even higher level. These R-Performance specimens are rare and sought after and form the pinnacle of the XK series.
About this specific copy
The XKR Convertible we offer is an original Dutch copy that is equipped with all R-Performance options. This means that the car has an R-Performance adaptive undercarriage in combination with an R-Performance fast steering gear. The ventilated Brembo brakes bring the car back to a halt with great force from high speed. The Recaro bucket seats grip on the driver, ensuring that the driver stays perfectly in place even on the fastest turns. The aggressive but still elegant appearance is enhanced by the 22 inch BBS Montreal rims. Aluminum finishes in the interior and the aluminum sports pedals add extra emphasis to the car's sportiness.
This original Dutch XKR is always well maintained, which in addition to the excellent technical condition is evident from all documentation that is present at the car. The Platinum Silver metallic paint in combination with the black shade make this convertible a beautiful appearance. A unique car in a unique state.
