2003 Jaguar XKR 4.2 Coupe (X100)


  • Japanese import model, imported in 2018 with all paperwork
  • Low mileage and excellent condition throughout
  • Extensive work carried out in 2019

The Appeal

There are few cars with the impact of the Jaguar XK series. A smooth, flowing shape with a tinge of retro styling, a powerful V8 and swift handling made for an effortlessly cool, powerful and fast GT. It was the Jaguar that defined a generation. 

This vehicle has spent most of its life in Japan, meaning a relatively dry life with no salted roads. The result is that it's still in excellent condition with minimal corrosion and very well-kept paintwork. Its relatively low UK mileage means that the car is still in import condition - a sparkling example of a beautifully maintained XKR.

  • Invoices of all work done in 2019

  • Unusual Japanese stickers inside cap
  • All branding and badges present in excellent condition
  • Vehicle is reportedly kept in constant dry storage and only drives in dry conditions

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
