The X100 generation XK was Jaguar’s modern-day take on the classic E-type of the ’60s. The aerodynamic shape was perfected in a wind tunnel and designed to generate the least amount of wind noise while providing downforce and brake cooling
The supercharged V8 (AJ33S) features a forged steel crankshaft, forged/fracture split rods, forged aluminum pistons, piston oil cooling jets, and a 2.0L Eaton supercharger (M112 Gen 5) pushing 13 psi of boost. Over 80% of peak torque is available from 1400 RPM (!) providing the effortless surge at throttle tip-in that supercharged Jags are known for
The engine is backed by a ZF 6spd automatic transmission. Stopping power is from Brembo (disc brakes all around) and optional 5 spoke BBS “Detroit” aluminum wheels (shown here) further distinguish the “R” from the normal XK
While this generation of Jaguar cars was designed under Ford ownership, the XJ and XK are not Ford products (a common misconception). The XJ/XK are genuine Jaguar vehicles built in the Coventry, England plant and are powered by Jaguar-built engines (AJ-V8) composed of Jaguar parts (minus the supercharger -very few Ford parts exist on these cars). The only Jags built by Ford are the X type and S type
Key Model Year Changes:
Significant cosmetic updates (essentially a refresh)
First year of the ground effects kit (side skirts, enlarged rear bumper, double-chin front bumper, etc)
Adaptive cruise control is improved
Only 669 XKR coupes were built in 2005. Same with 2006
The following year (2006) is the final year of the X100 generation XKR. Virtually no changes
Jaguar sold twice as many XKR convertibles as they did XKR coupes, making the Coupe a tough find on the used market
2005-2006 are generally grouped together in terms of styling and interior updates. 2003 was the first year of the 4.2L V8. 2003 and 2004 are the only years to combine the 4.2L with the early “lean” body style. 4.2L models are not prone to the premature plastic timing chain guide failure common on 1997-2002 4.0L models
