Introduction

Tom Brett
Content Editor

To mark the arrival in Formula One in 2000, Jaguar initially produced a limited run of 100 'Silverstones', a highly optioned with performance package version of the XKR.

Fitted with Jaguar's supercharged 4.0 litre twin-cam 32 valve aluminium V8 (engine code AJ-V8), producing 370BHP and 387 lb-ft of torque, the XKR was capable of 0-60MPH in 5.4 seconds. The Silverstone had an improved transmission, suspension, braking and steering.

A stunning shape with the 'E-Type-Esque' bonnet line, a modern classic in its own right. This example, an original "Phase One", comes with a stamped service book and has covered just ~75,000 miles since new.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Bill, the owner, having photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

This car belonged to a friend of mine that I knew for 25 years, a lovely XKR Silverstone.

Bill has been in the trade for over 40 years now. His close friend John, who bill used to go to car shows with, bought the car in 2016. When John passed away last year, Bill decide to buy the car from his friends estate and has used the car for some local trips since then. Owning a number of cars, Bill has decided that it's time for this one to find a new home where someone will get further use, and so it is now up for auction.

Exterior

Finished in the Silverstone exclusive colour of platinum, with Silverstone specific touches across the exterior.

Wheels and Tyres

Large 20" 5-spoke BBS alloys provide the XKR with a unique stance. Wrapped in tyres maintaining a good level of tread, a mixture of brands across the car, their low profile (255/35ZR20 front, 285/30ZR20 rear) makes turning that much sharper.

The wheels themselves are in good condition, the outer rims showing sign of corrosion which would benefit from refurbishment, take a look through the images for a view.

Bodywork

The classy, slender body is always a delight to see on the road, a design which is starting to mature gracefully.

Looking through the images, we observed no dents across the body and no signs of rust / corrosion. As expected, all panel gaps and shut lines are tight / correct. In the mechanics gallery, you'll see pictures of the underside of the car when up on a ramp, areas like the front cross member looking corrosion free.

Paint

Set in a platinum colour exclusive to the XKR Silverstone, a testament to the previous owners and Bill who have managed to keep the car in top condition.

In line with the age and mileage of the car, you might notice some stone chips along front of the car, but generally it is in very good condition.

Glass and Trim

All look excellent on this XKR with no issues. The car features "Silverstone" badging front and back that was of course exclusive to the limited edition run.

Interior

A unique styled interior, leather with custom red stitching across the entire cabin and contrasting silver birds-eye maple wood trim.

Seats and Carpets

Sumptuous leather seats with red stitching add to the pedigree of the Jaguar XKR Silverstone. The seats show a little signs of age but generally in good condition. Both heated and electrical functions service both driver and passenger.

All carpets are clean and prepared for sale by the owner.

Dashboard

All dials and gauges are clearly legible, sitting in the unique silver birds-eye maple wood trim, a real contrasting centrepiece for the Silverstone.

All of the centre console area and the top of the dash look in very good condition, the red stitching in place across all the leather trim.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel features simple and intuitive switches for the cruise control and stereo. Like the rest of the cabin, wrapped in the black leather with red stitching.

The automatic gearbox controls on the centre console finished with the unique wood trim, looking in excellent condition.

Mechanics

Jaguars tuned XKR 4.0L Supercharged V8 pushing out 370BHP, through a performance chassis set-up with the Silverstone.

Engine and Gearbox

The supercharged XKR, 370BHP vs 290BHP for the standard XK8, a considerable increase in performance. Having been regularly been serviced, we are assured by the seller the car starts without any problems.

The Silverstone also came with an improved automatic gearbox over the standard XKR, the seller Bill reports no issues with the changes etc.

Suspension and Brakes

Improved suspension and brakes on the Silverstone ensure you're in control of the performance you have. Brembo 4-pot brakes with aluminium callipers and adaptive suspension. You'll see from the pictures of the engine bay what looks like factory finish on all of the suspension mounts etc.

The underside looks free from corrosion and as such looks to be stored correctly over ~79,000 miles.

The Drive

A phenomenal car that epitomises a modern classic in performance, rarity and style. This car offers everything and is a perfect blend of class and sheer torque.

Electrics and Other

The Silverstone edition came with almost every option possible included as standard, the only options that were actually optional were the telephone and navigation system. Climate control is included with the XKR along with radio and CD Auto-changer.

History and Paperwork

A "Phase One" Silverstone, one of the original one hundred that were built, a well cared for example.

This particular example comes with a host of provenance, a stamped up service book documenting the mileage etc.

We have actioned our usual checks; seller ID, V5C, HPi clear.
