Jaguar XKR – get your own budget slice of one of the UK’s hottest brands
You can’t help but have noticed that British manufacturer Jaguar has been undergoing something of a rebirth recently.
Ever the master of the executive saloon, the brand lost its way around the turn of the Millennium, losing ground to its admittedly superior German rivals when the Jaguar X-Type was launched – its bubbly looks were divisive, and the DNA it shared with the Ford Mondeo meant it was never going to achieve classic status – (though it now represents something of a used bargain.)
However, the past decade has really seen Jaguar get its mojo back. Its current line-up, including the spectacular new F-Type and the newly-launched small saloon, the XE, has been incredibly well received, and finally means there are genuine British alternatives to the big three German brands in showrooms again.
However, you could suggest that the seeds of Jaguar’s renaissance started with the launch of the XK8 in 1996. Totally different from the X-Type, its swooping lines and curves were classic Jaguar. And at WeBuyCarsForMore, we can offer you that chance to bask in Jaguar’s current glory.
The Jaguar XKR, and its little brother the XK8, helped remind the world that Jaguar could make desirable cars – and helped get Jaguar back on the right road once more. Even Michael Owen had one – but don’t let that put you off.
This is no ordinary version, either. It’s the 2005 XKR, which means it comes with a supercharged 4.2 litre engine – it left the factory with 400bhp and is good for 0-60 in a shade over 5 seconds. However, this car is as much about cruising in style as it is about the brutal pace and hearing that supercharger whine. The lush leather interior will get you there in style and comofrt, and you’ll know you’re behind the wheel of one of the most bang-on-trend marques on the road today.
Here are the details:
