"Sitting at the top of the Jaguar performance range in 2006 was the thunderous second generation XKR, the supercharged version of the standard XK. A very special car with stunning performance, great muscular looks and an elegant interior, the XKR is right up there with the best, a car with true presence and performance. Much of that feel comes from the superb, incredibly refined interior with its high quality craftmanship and stylish design which also translates to the rest of the car. Power comes from a supercharged 4.2-litre V8 engine which produces an impressive 420bhp and can carry the XKR to a top speed of 174mph and 0-60mph time coming in at 4.9 seconds. A wire front grille mesh, red exterior emblems, quad exhausts and subtle rear spoiler all indicate it to be an XKR.
This beautiful Midnight metallic black, first year of production, XKR Convertible with Ivory interior was ordered new by the vendor as a retirement present to himself after a long career as Chief Executive for a major national property company. Among the comprehensive paperwork still remains the vehicle order sheet which reveals several expensive optional extras on top of the already generous standard specification package, which included sat-nav, active headlights, front parking aids, premium sound package, 20-inch Senta alloy wheels, luxury weave convertible hood and tracker were all fitted. With six service stamps in the car’s service book, all of which were done at Guy Salmon in Thames Ditton, all show that since its initial three year service in 2009 this car has been serviced every year regardless of mileage. In fact over the past four years the car has covered only around 6,500 miles. This fastidious owner has never let the car want for anything and has had any issues dealt with immediately by the main dealer. Whilst it may be possible to find a lower mileage example, it would be near impossible to find one that has been cared for as well as this and with such high specification.
The car is supplied with a full main dealership service history, service log book, V5C registration document, MoT test certificate that expires in November 2018, private number plate, many receipts, two keys, owners pack and manuals.
