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, this is the perfect ‘handbook’ for the XK range.


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. This book 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.’

Independent Reviews

As a guide to almost 20 years of modern XK, this publication takes quite a lot of beating.
Classic & Sports Car

…a must-have guide to the minutiae of production history, special editions and potential pitfalls ... superb value…

… good stuff and unmissable if you are in the market for a bargain second-hand, prestige sports car.
