    Jaguar XKR Portfolio - the poor mans Aston

    25th July 2021

    I don't know what happened to the first post here, seems it got borked when the forum migrated....

    Can't recall what I said, but I did post this pic... (not the actual car, but one of them).

    That actually looks quiet ... good.

    I know two Aston DB9 owners in Perth. If that's any indication they appear to be troublesome cars compared to other stuff of the ilk. I reckon you did the right thing.

    Damn that pewter silver does look good.

                            Looks nice. Almost been bitten by a few X150 chassis lol.

                            I know this guy- http://www.alloydoctor.com.au - give him a buzz about rim repair. He does good work and can do shadow chrome.

                              Might be before your time at JLR, but do you know anything about this XKR test mule?

                              Was spotted out & about in mid-2008, but with a 56 plate it was probably around for a couple of years before that.

                              It had race seats and a cage in it... the rumours I hear was it was going to be a GT3-esque street car, like a production version of the Palmersport XKR, but JLR pulled the pin on it.
