Introduction

Darren Rungasamy
Automotive Editor, Photographer and Consigner

Intoxicating style with brutal power, the XKR offers rush with hush.

Oddly overshadowed by more recent models, the XKR unstated talents present a buyer with one of the genuine modern sports car bargains. The XKR is the supercharged version of the standard XK but the distinction between the two go beyond different body fittings and an extra 125bhp, it runs deep in the heart of the car. The XKR really makes you feel special, the punchy 4.2-litre V8 is incredibly refined and rudely powerful. Combined with British craftsmanship and famed Ian Callum styling, the XKR also has a spacious cabin with huge concessions to practicality and comfort.

When released in 2007, Jaguar had worked hard to banish the reliability issues of its predecessor, the XK8. The XKR didn't disappoint and has proved to be as durable as its German rivals. Considered the first of the modern age Jaguar GTs, out went the walnut burr trim and in came the advanced aluminium construction. The physical benefits of a weight-saving bonded and riveted aluminium chassis and body, combined with a supercharged engine, an elegant high-quality interior, muscular good looks and precise handling places it as one of Jaguars greats.

We present to you this low mileage example with a full-service history. The current owner has used it as a weekend car, meaning it has seen something of a charmed life in recent years, only covering 5,000 miles since 2017. Finished in subtle silver, kitted out with the desirable 20” wheel option and quad exhausts, this XKR is something of a rare commodity - a genuine Grand Tourer for the price of a mid-range hot hatch.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Darren Rungasamy after meeting Mark the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

I bought the Jaguar as a 50th birthday present to myself.

Mark has owned the Jaguar since 2017, following a recommendation from a friend. Bought as a treat to himself after his kids had all fled the nest, he was hooked by the power and V8 engine tone of the XKR, combined with its subtle style. It has been mostly used for weekend drives, resulting in just 5,000 miles being added to milometer during his ownership. However, the car is not being used as much as it should be and he's decided to sell the car.

Exterior

The XKR is everything a GT should be, an elegantly styled and well-built car.

Wheels and Tyres

The 20-inch 'Cremona' option fit wheels look amazing and really suit the car's already good looks.

We did notice they would benefit from a light refurb, as there is light scraping and peeling lacquer evident on all four wheels, but are not too unsightly.

The tyres are all legal, although the near-side front tyre would benefit from a replacement in the near future. All the other tyres show even wear.

Bodywork

The panels are all straight, with no uneven panel gaps or evidence of poor accident repair. The bumpers hang correctly.

Again, being picky, there are two very minor corrosion spots on the off-side panels, one placed on the bottom right of the drivers' door and the other below the rear side window.

Paint

The paint coverage is very good, with a decent lustre and even match throughout the whole car.

There is evidence of a light impact on the right-hand side of the front bumper, possibly the result of the lightest of car park mishaps, but has caused the paint to crack.

Glass and Trim

The glass is in good overall condition with no major scratches or laminate damage, but it has to be pointed out the windscreen has a crack on the driver's side. It doesn't impede the vision as it doesn't obstruct the driver's view. As a result, it is flagged as an MOT advisory rather than a major flaw. All the rubber trim is in good condition, with no damage or rips - there is no evidence of leaking. The front light lenses have oxidized somewhat but can be easily resolved by using a dedicated polishing compound.

Interior

The interior has aged well, both in terms of build quality and visual aesthetics.

Seats and Carpets

The interior is in very good condition. The heated and cooled front seats have been cared for, with limited evidence of wear or significant damage to the leather. This corresponds with the cars low mileage and recent gentle use. The right rear seat has a couple of indentations, which has marked the seat, perhaps the result of a heavy object resting on them over a period of time. The carpets (both in the cabin and boot) and mats are in very good condition. The headlining is unmarked and as new, with light scuffing on the footwell plastic.

Dashboard

The condition of the dashboard is in a similarly good condition, with no significant issues that catch the eye. All of the controls are said to be functional. The controls are in decent condition with very little signs of ageing.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

The steering wheel has a couple of minor age-related marks, in keeping with the use and age of the car. The gear knob is in good condition. Both items have generally worn the years well.

Mechanics

The performance is astonishing but doesn't compromise the ride.

Engine and Gearbox

The engine started with no issues after a particularly cold night. The engine purred nicely, with no unwanted noises and the engine came up to temperature without any issues. The six-speed electronic automatic gearbox is said to be functioning well with no slippage. There was no evidence of fluid leaks.

Suspension and Brakes

The car is said not to present any creaks or knocks from the suspension components and dampers, the brakes didn't squeal but the front discs and pads were flagged up during the last service as items for a replacement for the near future. The rear discs, sensors and brake pads have been subject to a recent replacement.

The Drive

The long bonnet, sumptuous interior and civility of the design betray its potential to crack 60mph in less than 5 seconds. The car has attracted genuinely positive opinions since it was launched, with its comfort, handling and good looks being singled out, but the XKR has also proved to be reliable with accessible running costs. It comes into its own on the motorway but is docile enough around town. The Jaguar XKR offers a homegrown alternative in this fiercely competitive sector of the market, but none of them offers so much for so little.

Electrics and Other

All the electrical items are said to be functional including the seven-inch touchscreen, although the central right park sensor has been reported as faulty during the last service.

History and Paperwork

The XKR comes with excellent service history and careful usage.

Registered at Rybrook Jaguar in Chester, the car has seen four keepers in its lifetime. The service history has been kept up to date, with the most recent service being carried out in October 2019, which also included a set of rear discs and pads, as well as engine belts.

Key Bidding Facts

What is your reserve policy?

A reserve is the minimum price that the seller will let the car go for. We work with sellers to set realistic reserves in line with market pricing – we don’t take on vehicles with unrealistic pricing. Reserve met / not met labeling may or may not be announced during the auction – this is just like a traditional auction house, i.e. bidders may only know when they’ve been successful at the end of the auction.

If the reserve hasn’t been met at the end of the auction then we work with the highest bidder to try to work out a deal with the seller.

Why shouldn’t I leave bidding to the last minute?

Auto-Extending Bidding – we’ve developed auto-extending auctions that mimic traditional auction house bidding; it’s a key feature to make sure classic vehicles achieve their true worth. Bids placed in the last one minute automatically extend the auction by two further minutes. So there is no need to leave bidding to the last second.

Security – we operate higher levels of security, so you may need to enter further authorisations against your stored card after you select ‘Place Bid’. All this takes time and may mean you miss the end of the auction by the time the authorisation passes. To guarantee your bid, we recommend at least five minutes are active on the auction when you place your bid.
