Used Jaguar XKR
In the world of motoring, one letter can be the difference between an excellent car and one that defies belief. The Jaguar XKR is the perfect example as. What Jaguar has done is take the phenomenally good XK and strap a nuclear bomb under the bonnet, add some outlandish bodywork, and that all important extra letter. All you can say of the result is ‘oh my god!’
All models of the regular XK are noted for being some of the best GT cars around. The XKR is a bigger, beefier and faster version that is just a massive step up; with it Jaguar has entered the rarefied atmosphere and once again become a major player.
To look at the XKR is a thing of beauty, and the fact it’s a more aggressive older brother isn’t lost on anyone. Inside it’s the embodiment of luxury with high quality materials, a neo-classical layout and very comfortable seats, which are ideal for long journeys around country roads or the Riviera. You also get a huge amount of kit, which makes the Jaguar good value for money, if there’s such a thing with luxury sports cars.
You don’t buy a car such as this to be practical, you buy it to go fast and have fun. There’s not much room inside, but an adequate boot space could probably fit golf clubs or a small amount of shopping. But who really cares about that when the driving experience is this epic? It handles beautifully both at speed and in the bends, and massive supercharged engine has power and noise akin to a Saturn V rocket!
The XKR is hugely expensive to buy brand new, but interestingly costs a lot less than its rivals. Despite this, the scope for saving a huge amount of money is huge if you buy second hand. At Motors.co.uk you’ll have no problem finding a used Jaguar XKR for a bargain basement price, as the selection of cars for sale is incredibly diverse. It pays to buy pre owned, and this car is all the proof you need.
With the Jaguar XKR then, you actually get a fierce beast of an animal that’s been domesticated. On the one hand it’s easy to drive around town and probably as docile as a pussy cat, but wake it up with a bit of a kick and it’ll take your head off as any predator would. The XKR is an epic grand tourer, and makes that extra letter more than worth it.
