Vehicle Description

1998 Jaguar XJR 4-Door Sedan - Ordered new through DeNooyer Jaguar in Kalamazoo, MI and shipped to Dubai - Sold back to a friend in Michigan in 2019 and shipped back to the U.S. - Original Window Sticker: $70k Purchase Price - British Racing Green over Catkin Interior - 4.0L Supercharged V8 - 29k Original Miles and All Stock - Incredibly Clean and Meticulously Maintained (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1998 Jaguar XJR on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 160 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, and a link to its accident and damage-free Carfax history, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) Our Favorite 370-HP Luxury Sedan �€" Motor Trend '98 Jaguar Long-Term Wrap-up Classic luxury and styling draws well-heeled patrons to Jaguar dealers. But nothing turns our heads like sheer power. Like the tire-burning thrust of a 370-horsepower V-8 in the tasty Jaguar XJR. That's right, the XJ series became the torque of the town with the introduction of the supercharged V-8 XJR in '98, causing every auto enthusiast in both the Isles and Colonies to bow in homage to the quickest sedan on the planet. Never short on comments, the Motor Trend staff scrawled the following missives in the logbook: 'A masterful blend of British luxury and American muscle.' This car makes you feel elegant and gets sweeter by the mile.' 'Musclecar in a tuxedo.' and 'Sir William Lyon must be smiling in heaven.' (The full Motor Trend review is available online here: Offered here is a 1998 Jaguar XJR in British Racing Green over Catkin. This is the Jaguar model that saved Jaguar, curing many of the ills of neglected quality control and expanding the customer base beyond the traditional stuffy bankers and upper-crust society types. This particular XKR has an interesting travel history. Ordered new through DeNooyer Jaguar in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the car was shipped to Dubai. Two decades later in 2019, the Jaguar was sold to a friend of the owner's back in Michigan, and made the return trip to the U.S. The XKR has been meticulously maintained and its condition is exceptional in every respect. The sale includes the original factory window sticker (which is also shown in the gallery) listing all standard and optional equipment. The car's odometer shows 29,219 miles, or fewer than 1,300 miles per-year on average since new. (Of course, the mileage from the three ocean-crossings is not included.) Every automobile color has its fans, but it's hard to argue that British Racing Green is the absolute perfect Jaguar color. Here, the (optional) paint displays a nearly showroom-new, virtually flawless finish: perfectly smooth gloss and deep reflectivity across the entire body, including the painted bumpers front and rear. There are no scrapes or other imperfections, and the car's sheet metal is free of dings, dents, or other damage. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Chrome window surrounds, dual-exhaust outlets, and body-side trim is similarly exceptional; the front grille and quad-headlight arrangement is simply beautiful. All cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and free of flaws. All factory badging-notably including the leaping cat hood sculpture is in place. Factory 5-spoke, 18-inch aluminum wheels (with Jaguar-cat-logo center caps) are mounted with Pirelli® P-Zero 255/40 all-season performance tires. Inside, the stylish yet tasteful interior exudes luxurious Jaguar quality. Burled walnut inserts trim sculpted door panels rendered in dark green and catkin (a yellow-tinged, platinum color). It can be reasonably argued that no manufacturer matc
