Meeting of Clive G and Dave Roche for Coffee and XKR Chat – 11.05.17

Meeting of Two Impressive Jaguar XKR's

Meeting of Clive G and Dave Roche for Coffee and XKR Chat at the Old Storehouse Near Dingwall, North East Scotland 11.05.17.

Both of these great looking cars have been upgraded and maintained to a high standard with many parts being supplied by DCR AutoParts.

Clive's car is a rare XKR 100 limited Edition built to celebrate the centenary of Jaguar's founder, 500 'XKR 100' coupes and convertibles combined total were made in 2002. The XKR 100 featured all the available options and an Anthracite paint finish,Recaro seats, 20-inch BBS Alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, specific dark wood dashboard panels and GPS. As it was produced only after 2001 all the engines were fitted with upgraded metal chain tensioners and fuel pump, solving the common engine failures due to the weakness of plastic and semi-plastic tensioners.

Dave's blue car is a 2000 4.0 XKR with 'R' Performance options finished in Royal Blue, 20 ins BBS Detroit wheels with diamond cut edging, Brembo brakes, Sat Nav, latest 4th generation timing chains and tensioners - the list goes on !.

These cars may be offered for sale in the coming months if anyone is interested.
