Jaguar XKR

For a tiny outlay of cash, this Jaguar XK8 comes packed with prodigious power and loads of luxurious features.

These days, if you’re looking for a great deal on a very nice, very capable luxury sports vehicle, it’s hard to find better value than in a used Jag. For whatever reason, the majority of the enthusiast market continues to sleep on cars like the sleek XK from the later ’90s into the 2000s.

This, despite the fact that these cars were very well received at the time. Mostly for their beautiful styling, luxurious materials, and prodigious power. Thus, cars like this super clean 2003 Jaguar XKR that’s up for grabs in the Jaguar Forums Marketplace are being sold for a song.

With just 138k miles on the odometer, this supercharged cat has plenty of life left in it, and a true enthusiast owned it. Thus, you’d be hard-pressed to find proof that it even has that many miles. The beautiful ‘vert shows only a “couple cosmetic issues” that we had a hard time finding in the pics provided.

For the current asking price of just $7,400, you sure won’t get more car for your dollar. This Jaguar XKR packs the supercharged 4.2-liter V8. Which in this guise produces a very healthy 390 hp and 399 lb-ft of torque. The seller notes that the car exhibits no mechanical issues, either.

For a tiny outlay of cash, you also get a load of nice features. Things like rain sensing wipers, adaptive cruise control, four-wheel disc brakes, and GPS. Just try and find a car that has this kind of powertrain for this small of a price. Not to mention those sorts of options.

Yes, the Jaguar XKR is a proper bargain, and we aren’t just talking about this one. But if you’re in the market for something luxurious, fast, and cheap, this particular example looks like it checks every box!
