You & Your Jaguar XK/XKR is the new updated and enlarged edition of the only book on the complete Jaguar XK/XKR range of 1996 to 2014, covering design, development, maintenance, modifications and full model-by-model details. New updated and enlarged edition! Jaguar’s XK sports models were produced from 1996 to 2014 in two distinct forms: the original, steel-bodied cars and the later advanced technology aluminium-bodied versions. Highly significant for Jaguar, these cars reintroduced the world to Jaguar sports car motoring and, in doing so, echoed the success of previous icons, such as the E-type. With no plans from Jaguar for a direct replacement, the XK and XKR are guaranteed to become much sought after models, which are already attracting keen interest from driving enthusiasts. You & Your Jaguar XK/XKR is the only current title covering the whole model range in precise detail, and is a vital read – both to those who currently own an XK, and anyone contemplating purchasing one. This is a book that will interest all Jaguar enthusiasts and those interested in the history of Jaguar and its cars – the perfect XK ‘handbook.’ Tells the complete story of the Jaguar XK range, from conception in the Ford era, to Tata ownership in 2014. No other books exist on the whole XK range, from 1996 to 2014, a range that sold over 150,000 units. Comprehensive data includes: background development of the cars; detailed images of prototypes, production, special edition cars; analysis of what’s good and bad about XKs; review of maintenance and modifications; and vital statistics about all the various models.
