XKR

 

On May 6th 1998, and following on from the XK8’s success, Jaguar subsequently launched a similar looking but higher performance model known as the XKR, a supercharged version of the XK8. Very little was done to differentiate the cars except that the XKR had far superior handling capabilities and the price of the cars had risen to £59,300 for the coupe and £66,300 for the convertible.
