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.
Manufactured in 2001, this XKR Coupe was first UK registered on the 5th of March that year. Fitted with the 3996cc Jaguar DOHC V8 engine allied to the five-speed ZF automatic transmission, ‘Y106 BWN’ is finished in Dark Blue Metallic with a complementing Black leather interior. Having covered just 68,589 miles from new (at the time of consignment), this Jaguar was purchased by its current owner this year. Since its purchase, £500 was spent on some electrical fettling but he has decided to compile the majority of his collection into one more valuable vehicle, and so the vehicle is offered for sale today. Benefitting from much recent improvement, a full professional repaint was provided in 2018 (reportedly due to just a few minor blemishes), a new headlining was fitted two years ago and recently it was shod with new tyres. Accompanying the vehicle is a printed Jaguar XKR handbook, a printed MOT history and the current V5C document which displays 7 former keepers. ‘Y106 BWN’ has an MOT valid until 27 March 2024, with no advisories noted.
