Only time will tell, but the departure in shape from the Jaguar XJ-S to the Jaguar XK8/XKR was probably what the E-type to the XJ-S needed all those years before. The XKR shape is almost 20 years old and yet it still has a lot of love for its modern sporty shape. It’s a testament to how forward thinking Jaguar was at the time and how we rarely see them in nothing short than a well looked after state today.
The XKR and XK8 models are very popular visitors to our trade counter. DVLA statistics show there are 1000’s still currently on the road with many owners looking after them, the number is not likely to decrease any time soon. Our customers have also commented that an early version can still be purchased relatively cheaply making it an exciting purchase for many people.
