If you buy from a dealer you have an effective 6 month warranty anyway, under the current consumer legislation.

It looks a beauty. If I were to buy it, I'd want to know the cam chain and tensioners had been done.

I'd also try and see if the cooling pipework had been done.

Not a lot else to worry about aside from usual suspects.

A 500+ Hp car for less than £10K and less than 10 years old.


If the car has had the chains and tensioners done - someone is going to get a bargain!

I have, but of course I can change it :)

I think for now, its not the right thing to do. I'm sure I can get something newer / nicer / better when ready and then make it as fun as this is.

Price is very tempting. 2nd or 3rd car, just to have fun with it 2/3000 miles per Year. It might last another 10 year without major issues...Someone will get a stupid smile on his face soon :)
In 10 year will be a modern classic...

My commute has gone from 100 miles per day x 5 days per week to 20 mile per day 2-3 times per week, so certainly a lot more 'affordable' but it would be my main daily and our 'family car as the Mrs currently has a Cooper S. And yes, a potential future classic perhaps, so tempting.

This is a decision to make with your Heart :)
Cost wise is going to be an expensive toy to run if you are lucky, very expensive if you are not. Cheap to buy not to maintain.

How much 'value' is there in that this is one of the 100 limited edition in terms of potential future classic or should I just look for any nice clean XFRs in future?

I don't think there is any value. These were just dealer special editions were they not? Not official Jaguar special editions.

According to Evo as per below. Doesnt really tell me 'whodunit'.

"The spring of 2011 brought the launch of a special edition, the XFR 100 (because only 100 were made), with a swankier cabin, black exterior trim and dark grey 20in ‘Draco’ alloys with red brake calipers. "

And another thread that talks about it being some dealers but then contradicted to say it was more than just a dealer thing.

Think it was Stratstone who released the XFR 100. I think Chris is right, it wasn't an official Jaguar limited edition.

That's what I remember reading. I can't imagine Jaguar putting Quicksilver exhausts on a car, they've just get their own made.

Jaguar introduced a XJR 100 in September 2001, the 100th Anniversary of Sir William Lyons birth. 500 were made.

So maybe they will be special. I was getting them mixed up with the Le Mans version.
