Known History

The second generation of Jaguar's high performance sports Coupe, the aluminium-bodied XKR, was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2005. It was designed by Ian Callum, who also penned the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish. The newcomer's retro radiator grille was a deliberate echo of that on the immortal E-Type.

 

The righthand drive XKR being sold is particularly special. It was modified and prepared by Jaguar Cars for use in the PalmerSport corporate track days, organised by former F1 driver and commentator Jonathan Palmer at his premier driving centre near Bedford. It is powered by a 420 bhp version of Jaguar's super smooth 4.2-litre supercharged V8 engine - output sufficient to accelerate the big cat to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 185 mph. The unit is mated to a remapped, six-speed, paddle-shift ZF transmission for F1-style gearchanges, which in turn leads to an uprated Dana differential. The track modified suspension features Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs and the AP Racing brakes comprise uprated callipers and discs.

 

The striking go-faster body is finished in Metallic Gray with a broad White stripe running from stem to stern down the middle and large 'leaping cat' logos on each flank. The purposeful nose features carbon fibre front air scoops and splitter, while a GT2-style spoiler dominates the rear. Huge 10-spoke, split-rim alloys fill the wheel arches. The salient features of the business-like interior include: a full roll-cage, racing steering wheel, lightweight Sparco racing seats and full harness seat belts, a plumbed in fire extinguisher and lap timer. As befits such a high-tech machine, the cockpit is trimmed in lightweight carbon fibre. According to the vendor, the bodywork, paintwork, stripped out interior, engine and transmission 'are all in very good condition'.

 

Having been built specifically for track use, this very exciting one owner (Jaguar Cars) XKR is so far unregistered, but could be modified for road use if required. It therefore represents a unique opportunity to acquire a truly stunning-looking modern performance car for use on the circuit, road, or both.
