2002 Jaguar XKR-100 Edition Convertible A2619
2002 Jaguar XKR 100 Edition Convertible with navigation, Alpine sound
system, parking sensors, heated seats, and 20" wheelsis an absolutely
stunning automobile. One of its most amazing features, however, doesn't
come from the factory: it only has 19,490 miles on it! That boils down to
just over 2,000 miles driven each year. Unbelievable! And it truly looks
and responds like a carefully used automobile. From its powerful V8 engine
to its beautiful leather interior, there's nothing to dislike about this
great car. Let's take a closer look.
EXTERIOR: The exterior of the XKR is covered in a lovely coat of ANTHRACITE
paint. This sleek color is elegant and nicely complements the shapely
features of the car. Stepping on the gas will prompt a roar from the beast
of an engine. Under the hood is a 4.0L 370 horsepower V8 engine with
387 lb-ft of torque. It is quick and responsive, to say the least. Let's
not forget that this car still has less than 20,000 miles on it! That's
hard to find in a 2002 model year car. In the headlight position of the car
are auto-on and -off lamps with power wash that will help you see through
any of the darkest nights and weather. There are also front and rear fog
lamps for when the weather conditions really get thick. Rain-sensing
automatic intermittent windshield wipers will come in handy when the clouds
let loose. Helping add to the sporty look of this coupe are sporty 20"
wheels with tires in good condition. Let's not forget that this is a
convertible! The power black soft top goes up and down without issue so you
can turn your comfortable coupe into an open-top sports car at just the
push of a button. There's also the boot cover so you can make sure the top
is protected when it is down. The cherry on top is the Jaguar emblem on the
hood reminding you and others that you are driving pure elegance.
INTERIOR: Just as lovely and stylish as the outside of the car is the
inside. Decked in clean and beautiful CHARCOAL upholstery, the inside is
comfortable and has no unpleasant odors. The power heated Recaro front
seats are in good shape and feature lumbar support and the driver seat has
two position memory. Adding to refined look of the leather is burl walnut
wood trim that flows throughout the car and highlights the dash of the
vehicle. The power tilt and telescoping leather steering wheel will feel
great in your hands and has controls for audio and cruise. You and your
passengers will appreciate the automatic climate control so that everyone
can be as comfortable as possible. One of the nicest features is the Jaguar
navigation system. With it, you will have maps and turn-by-turn directions
to help you arrive easily at just about any destination. Everyone likes
listening to music on the radio. Jaguar has included a an upgraded 320-watt
Alpine stereo system with 6-disc CD changer and AM/FM stereo for your
listening pleasure. With the reverse park control, you will have audible
alerts to what's behind you as you back up so you can be sure to not bump
into any hard-to-see objects. Some other great features included are: cell
phone pre-wiring, cup holders, trip computer, electrochromic rearview
mirror, illuminated sun visors, power windows, power door locks, and door
mounted curb illumination lamps. Your 2002 Jaguar also comes with factory
mats and two keys with one remote.
Our goal is to make sure the overall condition of the car is as close to
new as possible. This means a full detail that includes polishing any light
scratches and professionally touching up chips. All dings are
professionally removed. While our cars are close-to-new, keep in mind that
they are pre-owned and may show some signs of wear. We will be more than
happy to go over the car panel-by-panel with you on the phone for extra
details. Also, think of the great savings you will have with this purchase.
This outstanding car had a sticker price of about $100,000! Now you can
save a lot of money investing in this great pre-owned car. Own one of the
most stylish members of the automobile kingdom with this great 2002 Jaguar
XKR 100 Convertible!
