Finished in special order Botanical Green metallic with Ivory leather and front park aid, ‘YR57 ZYX’ was sold to its only registered keeper by Hatfields Jaguar of Sheffield on 29th November 2007. A lifelong marque enthusiast, the XKR was the last model he purchased and cost £68,500. Warranted to have covered just 4,500 miles from new, the 2+2-seater’s original book pack shows it have been main dealer serviced at 1,686, 2,016, 2,507, 4,105 and 4,482 miles. Always kept garaged, 'YR57 ZYX' was taken off the road in winter 2013 due to its late owner’s ill health. Due to be serviced and MOT tested prior to sale, the Jaguar presents very well indeed except for a minor scuff to the rear bumper (above the offside exhaust pipes) and small marks to the alloys.
Introduced at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show, the second-generation Jaguar XK range (codenamed X150) was styled by Ian Callum. Deliberately evoking the E-Type via its oval grille, speeding teardrop glasshouse and muscular haunches, the newcomer featured bonded / riveted aluminium construction, all-round independent suspension, power steering and four-wheel disc brakes. Powered by a supercharged 4.2 litre V8 engine developing some 420bhp and 413lbft of torque, the range topping XKR variant was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds and 155mph (limited). The standard fit six-speed automatic transmission could either be left to its own devices or made to swap cogs by the steering wheel mounted paddle shifts. A rival to the Porsche 911 (997) and Mercedes-Benz SL (R230), the Jaguar (X150) XK / XKR remained in production until 2014 by which time a mere 54,000 had been sold (compared to 212,704 Porsche 997s and 169,443 Mercedes-Benz R230s).
