This is really not a collector car and I guess grouping it into the "permanent collection" is not entirely accurate, but I had no other place to put my regular driver. Everyone needs a modern car for those times where a classic car is not either convenient or the best car to drive.
The XKR is the supercharged version of Jaguar's XK8. There are a few visual clues that identify the "R's" over the regular XK8. The hood (bonnet) has a couple of additional vents that give the car a more aggressive look. There is also a small spoiler on the trunk lid and larger wheels. Of course the big difference is under the hood ... this is where the supercharger lives.
I was looking for a XKR coupe but did not have luck finding exactly was I was looking for. This convertible was advertised locally and I really like the color combination. The exterior color is titanium with oatmeal interior. The car overall is in very nice condition, considering it is now more than 12 years old.
