1998 Jaguar XKR (X100)

Pretty supercharged Coupe in Pheonix red showing 93,920 miles; in the same ownership since 2002; nice registration A1OAW included

Supplied new by H.R. Owen of Colchester, Essex at the Jaguar Cars Ambassador launch, Packington Hall, Coventry on the 6th May 1998 this early X100 series XKR is finished in the launch colour of Phoenix Red and sits upon its original 18” staggered fitment Double-Five alloy wheels.

Under the sleek, vented bonnet we find the thumping 4.0 litre supercharged AJ26S engine which develops 370bhp and a monstrous 525NM of torque giving phenomenal performance and a zero to sixty time of just 5.4 seconds. Power is delivered by five-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels.

Inside this big cat, we find cream leather interior boasting heated electric seats with driver memory function, contrasting black carpets and dash top roll, dark wood trim, cruise control, electric windows and mirrors, Harmon Kardon sound system with CD changer, automatic digital climate control with AC, XKR embossed timber and leather multi-function steering wheel, automatic lights and wipers and electric lumbar adjustment.

The car comes to us from a deceased estate, and shows 93,920 miles the car having been in the current ownership since August 2002 and includes the rather attractive private registration ‘A1 OAW’ which must be worth c.£700-£1,000 alone surely.

The history file for this Lot includes the V5C revealing three former keepers, the owners pack and Service Book recording 12 stamps, the last in November 2009 at 77,852 miles by Hartlebury Specialist Car Care of Worcs, with eight of the stamps all Jaguar main dealers.  In addition, we also find one old MOT two old style V5C’s, recent invoice for a lube service dated June 2021 at 93,617 miles, a historic service bill from 2009 and correspondence between the first owner, a business (WH Group) and the 2nd, the user who purchased his former company car from his employer and subsequent purchase receipt dated May 2002.

The car looks ready to be enjoyed, and bar the usual minor sagging of the head-lining the car appears in attractive order (and an intermittent ABS/ASC warning light) with a clean MOT valid until 22nd June 2022 (the date of the sale, so please bare this in mind if you intend to drive this home after purchase, you will need a booked MOT slot) recording no advisories and showing the car has covered only c.1,500 miles in the last four years.
