The sleek-looking Jaguar XK8 first broke cover at the 1996 Geneva Salon as a replacement for the ageing XJS. Designed in-house by Geoff Lawson, the newcomer (in common with the Aston Martin DB7) was based on a much-modified XJS platform - the changes to which included the adoption of XJ40-type independent rear suspension. The standard version of the XK8 was powered by a 290bhp normally-aspirated version of the company's AJ26 V8 engine, and for those requiring more performance, Jaguar offered a supercharged version, the mighty XKR. Like the XK8, this 370bhp monster was available in closed or open guise and could hit 60mph in a whisker over five seconds and power quickly to the electronically-limited top speed of 155mph.

Offered here is a 2005 XKR Convertible with the R Performance package. Presenting in Dark Blue with a Maple interior with Cream leather, the R Performance package offered a number of upgrades with a performance theme and included Brembo brakes, Recaro seats and 20" BBS wheels and fitted with a sports exhaust.

In current ownership since 2018, the Convertible XKR has 5 former keepers recorded on the V5C. Fitted with the automatic transmission, the XKR has covered some 107,000 miles from new. There is a handwritten log of work carried out between 2009 and 2022. During ownership the car has benefitted from an oil and filter change in April of 2022, a heater water pipe in 2021 and a new oil cooler in 2018, engine oil and filter change in 2018, a new ABS sensor in 2016, automatic gearbox oil and filter at 95,880 miles in 2014 and the fitting of a Duplex exhaust system in 2014. Offered with a collection of invoices, the car has 2 keys, the original owner's wallet containing the handbook and service book. Additionally, there is a collection of old MOT paperwork and the V5C.
