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).

This is 'time-warp' car built-in 2008. With just the one private owner and staggeringly only 251 miles from new, this is a special example of what Jaguar was capable of in the mid-2000s. Finished in Metallic Vapour Grey with Ivory and Walnut interior, this highly specified Jaguar XKR has only stretched its legs on regular runs to the MOT station. The first and only owner ordered the car from the factory before suffering an injury, which rendered them unable to drive this exquisite car. They kept hold of it, hoping one day they would be able to enjoy the XKR. As well as the figure-hugging sports seats, leather trim, sat-nav, a six-CD in dash changer, electric seats, Bluetooth and reversing camera. Offered here with a very high specification, including: Alcon high-performance braking system; Bowers and Wilkins premium sound; adaptive cruise control; keyless entry; reversing camera; Bluetooth and more. Accompanied by the original bookpack, handbooks, service book and two keys, this 251 miles from new (it needed saying again) supercharged unicorn of a 'Jag', has been MOT'd regularly and then garaged throughout the year. Surely an unrepeatable opportunity?
