BaT Auction: 2005 Jaguar XKR

BaT Auction: 2005 Jaguar XKR

This 2005 Jaguar XKR is finished in Jaguar Racing Green metallic and equipped with a supercharged 4.2L V8 paired with a ZF 6-speed automatic transmission. Features include 20″ BBS wheels and a handling package optioned new, while the Champagne interior has been modified with OEM parts including a MOMO steering wheel and carbon fiber trim. The car was sold new in Florida and purchased seven months ago by the seller, who has since added 2,500 of its 104k indicated miles. Recent service included new tires in 2015 and an oil change in 2018. Now located in Oklahoma, this XKR is sold with owner’s literature, wheel accessories, a Euro-spec tool kit, a clean Carfax report, and a clear Oklahoma title in the seller’s name.

The Jaguar X100 series traced back to XJ41/42 development from the 1980s, and a total of 9,661 XKR coupes were produced worldwide between 1997 and 2005, the final year of production when 708 were sold. The Jaguar Racing Green metallic (HGZ) finish on this example is shown in detail in the photo gallery below. Exterior blemishes include a few stone chips according to the seller. Note the mesh front grille and hood vents for the twin air-to-water intercoolers.

BBS Detroit 20″ wheels were a $5,000 option and wear Hankook Ventus V12 tires which were replaced at 101k miles and measure 255/35 up front and 285/30 out back. The factory handling package included dual rear sway bars and a ride height reduced by 10mm, while Jaguar’s Computer Active Technology Suspension (CATS) features 2-stage damping. All four wheels are equipped with ABS-controlled Brembo 4-Piston vented disc brakes.

The dash and door upper panels were replaced by the previous owner with French-stitched leather, and tan carpets were replaced with black OEM versions. This example was optioned new with the Aluminium Pack, which featured a bright shifter surround and pedals. The stock wood-rimmed wheel was replaced with a Jaguar/MOMO unit matching the color scheme of UK-spec cars.

The previous owner upgraded the factory DVD-based navigation system to use 2014 Garmin internals and replaced the wood dash trim with Jaguar carbon fiber panels. An OEM wood trim set with functional central gauges will be included in the sale. The odometer shows approximately 104k miles, with 2,500 added by the seller over the past six months. The dash trim has a scratch and a chip on the passenger side, and the driver’s seatbelt latch cover is noted as cracked.

The 4.2L V8 is paired with a 6-speed ZF automatic transmission and features a belt-driven Eaton Roots-style supercharger with twin air-to-water intercoolers. The seller had the engine serviced in February 2018 with a 5w-30 oil and filter change. A previous owner commissioned work three years ago that reportedly included replacement of all rubber hoses and seals in the engine bay. The work is detailed in the gallery below.
