Introduction

Alan Stuart
Professional Consigner

Elegant and dazzling, this Ultimate Black example is extremely powerful with its 5 litres supercharged V8 and aerodynamic body.

A stunningly beautiful car, the Jaguar XK8 first hit the world stage at the Geneva Motor Show in 1996. The Fergus Pollock styled sports car held true to tradition and reflected a modern take on Jaguar sports cars of the past with more than a nod to the E-Type. Available in convertible or coupe form, 91,406 cars were produced with many exported to the US market.

Sharing a platform with the Aston Martin DB7, the XK8 replaced the long running XJS range.

This 2009 facelift was introduced with minor alterations to the front and rear lights, as well as bumper design, along with a brand new 5.0L V8 under the hood, with this being an 'R', a supercharger is also installed. It was optioned with cream leather interior which pairs well with the 'Ultimate Black' paintwork.

This lovely example is coming to market fresh after 4.5 years of ownership with Jeff.

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

Meet the owner

What a car - wait till you hear this 5.0L V8 in action; it simply flies down the road with a fantastic soundtrack.

Jeff thoroughly loves his performance cars and after owning this XKR for the past 4.5 years he will be sad to part with it. He's kept the car stored in the garage most of the time, and Jeff has been very careful throughout his ownership, always taking the car to his local Jaguar specialist garage just a few miles away.

Jeff will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have in the comments below.

Exterior

This 'Ultimate Black' car is every inch Jaguar with its sweeping body lines and elegant road presence.

Wheels and Tyres

The car sits on its original 20-inch alloy wheels and wrapped in Laufenn tyres on the front with Dunlop SP Sport Maxx on the rear.

The wheels appear in good condition, the alloys all have some very minor curb marks on the edges - the tyres appear in good condition with plenty of tread left on them.

Bodywork

The car stands straight, shut lines appear good and doors, bonnet and boot all open and close cleanly and precisely; exactly as they should. We could see no obvious signs of damage, dents or dings, and overall this XKR presents very well.

Importantly, we have taken hi-resolution images and videos of the car for you to assess the condition of the bodywork for yourselves.

Paint

Stunning 'Ultimate Black' paintwork which looks even and consistent with a deep shine. Jeff has just had the car detailed prior to sale.

If we are being really picky, we noticed some slight paint missing along the edge of the driver's door and convertible hood cover (offside).

The images taken are from different angles and reflections to show the car as you would see it if you were standing there for yourselves. Please take the time to fully assess the condition.

Glass and Trim

The glass looks in excellent condition across the car, along with the trim.

All the window rubbers and seal appear tight with no signs of excessive wear or degrading. We did notice a little humidity in the nearside front headlight.

Interior

Redesigned in line with the facelift to feature an XF style rotary gear selector mated to the new ZF auto transmission.

Seats and Carpets

The Jaguar sports seats look great in this example and show signs of care throughout previous ownerships.

On our visit, we didn't notice any major signs of wear and tear - just some light creasing to the front leather, as you would expect.

The carpets and door cards also tell a similar story, deep plush clean carpets with the Jaguar logo.

Dashboard

The dashboard and instrument dials appear as you would expect; in excellent original condition.

A center digital screen is fitted between the speedometer and rev counter and Jeff reports that the screens, dials, and gauges are working to his knowledge.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

An elegant and classy three-spoke Jaguar wheel is fitted - there's plenty of buttons to play with - dials for the cruise control and radio.

The automatic gear selector is found on the centre column and is in line with the rest of the condition of the car.

Mechanics

Incredible power delivery to the rear from the supercharged 5.0L V8 - eye watering acceleration with the wind through your hair.

Engine and Gearbox

An all-new direct-injection 5.0-litre motor – a 503bhp supercharged beast that powers the rear wheels.

The car starts from cold with no issues and drives well with its smooth auto gearbox powering the rear wheels. Take a look at the mechanical video to see the car starting from cold, and for a closer look underneath.

Suspension and Brakes

Jeff reports both are working very well with no unusual knocks or noises coming from either, and a smooth but performance-focused ride is always offered.

The Drive

Jeff loves to get out in the car when he can, mentioning it is a supercharged beast, different to anything he's driven before.

Electrics and Other

Fitted with all your mod cons from 2009 - fully adjustable seats with memory settings, dual climate control, navigation, USB, and iPod connectivity, and upgraded Bowers & Wilkins surround sound stereo system.

Jeff reports all the electrics are working well to his knowledge.

History and Paperwork

A timeless high-performance GT and future classic - this facelifted Supercharged XKR is the one to have.

The facelifted Supercharged XKR comes with a decent history file dating back to when it rolled off the production line. Jeff reports dry storing the car and carrying out specialist mechanical services when required.

The car comes with stacks of paperwork, along with many clean MOTs. Jeff is more than happy to answer any questions you may have in the comments below.

We’ve done all our usual checks; Seller ID, V5C, HPi.

We've summarised our own view on the car based on information gained from the seller in the listing above, however, and as you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in hi-resolution detail - this has been done for you to make your own assessment from the comfort of your sofa. So please sit back, have a cuppa and take your time to review everything on this listing in order to make your own assessment on the vehicle's condition. Viewings are also welcomed with all our listings, so please get in touch with us to arrange a suitable time - we just need to speak to you first and receive a valid photo ID before confirming.

If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please first ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bid/s, as bids can't be retracted and form a binding contract if you win the car - just like a traditional auction house.

Hi Jeff
It’s a bit rough underneath has it lived near the sea at some point?

Hi Jeff

So it hasn’t been serviced since 2017? Shouldn’t it be every year regardless of mileage?
