The X100 Jaguar XK grand tourer was launched at the Geneva motor show in 1996, as Jaguar finally replaced the veteran XJS. The new car was right up to date in terms of styling, and under the bonnet the long-serving straight-six was gone, replaced with a brand new 4-litre V8. In 1998, this was further enhanced for the new high-performance XKR model with the addition of an Eaton supercharger, taking power output up to 370bhp. This gave superb performance – the dash to 60 took just 5.4 seconds – while inside occupants were still treated to all the traditional Jaguar luxury.
This 1998 XKR is very striking in its bright colour scheme, enhanced by aftermarket wheels. In good all-round condition, it represents superb value for money when you consider what these cars are capable of. With an MOT until June next year, it also comes with the service history book, other relevant paperwork and bills, plus a V5c.
