The Appeal


With some of the hottest weather, we’ve ever experienced now seems like a perfect time to get into a convertible. So why not make it a Jaguar convertible, with unrivalled comfort, a huge V8, and stunning looks the XKR is probably the best modern classic sports car out there.

The History and Paperwork


  • This car started its life as a demonstrator, meaning that the car is fully loaded with kit for you to enjoy
  • It was sold after just under a year into its demonstrator life and ended up with an owner in a very fancy part of London.
  • The V5 shows the first private owner sold the car to the current owner in early 2022 but the loss of its garage has meant the current owner has had to reluctantly sell the car.
  • They have looked after it well throughout their ownership and in March of this year, it has a full service, including all new filters and an A/C recharge.
  • Only 2,000 had been covered since the past service, showing you how much care, the current owner puts into their vehicles 
  • The current owner has also just had all four alloys completely refurbished and even fitted new locking wheel nuts.
  • Within the paperwork collection, you will find an invoice for the alloy wheel refurb, the V5, and the service book.
  • The service book has a lot of stamps from the previous 12 years, where it has been serviced within the recommended intervals. 
  • Now is your chance to add to this car’s eclectic history, it will be a handful of fun from the day you collect it.
  • The Plate L60EFF does not go with the sale


The Interior


  • Touch screen infotainment 
  • Walnut dash
  • Bowers and Wilkins sound system

As you would expect from a Jaguar the interior of this XKR provides both a comfortable ride and a sense of occasion when the V8 burble encroaches into the cabin.

The comfortable perforated leather seats are in great condition throughout the car, there is however some marginal wear to the driver's bolster. On the whole, however, these seats are excellent, the rear look like they’ve never been sat in, and the front two electrically operated memory seats still work as they should. 
Focusing on the walnut-clad centre console we can see that there is some interesting kit fitted to this Jag.

First, and most obvious, is the large touchscreen display this is where you can find the sat-nav system and other information about the car. Sat below the touch screen you will find the ever elegant gear selector that rises when you start the car, it is an iconic feature of modern Jaguars. Finally, just below the gear selector, you find some fun buttons, the DSC button, slipper road mode, and race. 

When the roof is up the interior feels focused and very sporty, but at the press of a button, it transforms into an airy affair. The roof folds away and hides nicely behind the rear seats.

Overall, the interior of this XKR is in very good condition and just waiting for you to get in and explore some of the best roads the world has to offer. 

The Exterior 


  • Recently refurbished Alloys
  • The roof has just been fabric protected 
  • Great overall condition 

The X150 generation of the XK looks stunning, it is understated yet still aggressive with its bonnet strakes and front intakes. It must also be said that the combination of the blue paint and silver wheels works incredibly well and could be the best specification.

Looking in closer at this XKR you will see that all of the body panels are presented in very good condition, there was a slight stone chip on the front lip, but the owner has said that this will be rectified before you collect it. The rest of the paint however has been recently clay barred and waxed to help protect the paint for the future.

Much like the paint condition, the alloys are now presented in amazing condition. The current owner has made sure that these have been properly restored, as they weren’t in the best condition when you looked closer.

Looking at the smaller details on the exterior, such as the taillights, headlights, and shiny silver flashes you can see that they too are presented in good condition as well. With no fogging or hazing to the headlights.

The blue fabric soft-top looks very good, there are no rips, tears, or pulls to the fabric and it folds away neatly and quickly. Recently, the current owner has coated this fabric to ensure that the water just falls off the surface. 

This X150 is presented in very good exterior condition and is a car that you can’t help but look back at when you park it up. This will be a great-looking addition to your collection, that’s for sure

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.

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-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.
