2006 Jaguar XKR Victory 4.2 supercharged
Perfect in every way
Coolant / A/C hoses leaked and had to be replaced. The A/C system was also recharged.
Interior pieces and panels were made and assembled very well ONCE. If you have to remove any of them, be very careful.
I purchased my black 2006 Victory from the insurance auction. It hit a sidewalk at 70 MPH on the right front corner and was totaled because of it, but I bought anyways because it still looked awesome. 3 body shops later and $12k in failed repairs forced me to sell it, but only because I ran out of cash.
Beyond the loose subframe, misaligned transmission and failing suspension parts (all due to the accident), the car drove like a champ and considering the miles it had; never did it once give me a hard time. It started and ran smooth, the A/C was THE BEST A/C system I have ever encountered (once fixed) and the transmission and interior were built to last.
This car went through hell and back and it still drove and looked better than half the cars out on the road. Jaguar earned my respect with this one.
I only drive MT cars and sports cars, but this XKR made an impression on me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
