Lot : Jaguar XJR8

Classic, Collectors, Sports and Prestige Cars, Barons (16 July 2012)

The XJR title has been around Jaguar for over 30 years. The Le Mans cars of the 80's carried an XJR prefix, there was an XJRS version of the XJS, produced in association with TWR Racing, to celebrate the Le Mans win and various models bearing the title throughout the XJ and XJS range.

Offered here is a unique version of a 1998 XJR8, which is not equipped with the delicate 4.0 V8 but with a brand new, supercharged, XKR8 4.2 V8 engine, which was fitted 3 years ago and has covered just 5000 miles since being installed. In addition to this XKR engine, the car has been equipped with a modified supercharger, modified suspension with Bilstein shock absorbers, custom built (by hand) stainless steel, sports exhaust, rebuilt Mercedes transmission, new brake discs and pads, powder coated upper and lower front grille mesh, refurbished alloy road wheels and new tyres in June 2012.

Finished in Carnival red with doeskin leather, the car was the subject of a full repaint in 2009 and is offered complete with a fully stamped service booklet and a comprehensive file showing over �16,000 worth of expenditure over the past three years. The specification includes electric memory seats, smoked maple veneers and matching steering wheel, Premier Harmon Kardon Hi Fi system with stacking CD changer and cup holders.
