In the 1990s and early 2000s, legendary cars such as the Aston Martin DB7 and the DB9 as well as the Le Mans racer Nissan R390 were born from the pen of Jaguar’s chief designer Ian Callum. In 2005, the second-generation Jaguar XK was presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the design of which utilized the marks history with the E-type, for example in terms of the sayer nose.
Two years later, the more powerful XKR with a Supercharged V8 followed. The mechanically supercharged V8 produced 420 horsepower and reached 100 kilometres per hour in 5.2 seconds. The transmission was a ZF 6-speed automatic, which could also be controlled with steering wheel paddles. The changes in the design of the body were restrained, mainly the more aggressively shaped front bumper, the air intakes in the bonnet and the four outlets of the exhaust spoke of the increased power resources.
This 2007 XKR in question was sold on May 29, 2007 from the official Jaguar dealer in Florence. The car came to Finland from Luxembourg in 2015. The car has been regularly serviced at Jaguar specialized services since new, and the original service book and user manuals as well as many of service receipts kept. The last scheduled service was performed at 135,000 km / 2022, when the engine and transmission oils and filters were changed.
The car’s equipment includes xenon headlights, mobile phone equipment, electrically adjustable seats and XKR’s original 20-inch rims with Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The car’s Liquid Silver paintwork is in excellent condition, and the black leather upholstery and wood trim are neat and tidy.
