The miles covered are still displayed electronically in kilometres on the odometer and matches MOT history where mileages have mostly been recorded in KM. The Japanese Export Certificate, supplied with the car, shows the km covered as 38,300 km ( 23,800 miles) at the time of export.

‘VKE’ was last serviced in 2020, at 26,755 miles , by N & S Auto Services, Independent Jaguar Specialists of Wakefield, benefiting from an oil change, water pump. new timing chains with new guides plus the vendor has replaced rear suspension bushes, brake fluid automatic gearbox and differential oils. This a totally rust free example. The paintwork and pristine wheel arches and underside bear witness to it’s salt free Japanese history and dry storage whilst in the UK. With an MOT into September of 2023, the XKR is offered with the owner’s wallet, handbook and service book, two keys a collection of invoices and the V5C.
