This is the 1:18 white and green Cobra II made by Greenlight. The XKR grand tourer line-up was made by Jaguar Cars. The Jaguar XK (XK, XK8 and XKR) is a series of grand tourer cars produced by British car maker Jaguar Cars since 1996. The series was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show on 5 March 1996, and the last car came off the production line on 23 July 2014. The first generation of the series, the XK8, replaced the XJS, and was available as a coupé and convertible. The XK8 was the first 8-cylinder vehicle produced by Jaguar since the Daimler 250, introducing the Jaguar AJ-V8 engine.
The second generation XK was launched in 2006 (as a model year 2007). The new XK introduced an aluminium monocoque bodyshell, and is available both as a two-door coupé and two-door cabriolet/convertible, with just the engine and associated mechanicals being carried forward. The British car series started in 1996 to 2014. It is well-admired for its striking looks and performance. The MotorMax Jaguar XKR 1/24 Blue is a diecast model replica of the XKR model.
The newly designed XK was unveiled in 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. Jaguar’s chief designer Ian Callum (who was also responsible for working on the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish coupés) claimed that the inspiration for the shape of the new XK came from his admiration for British actress Kate Winslet’s curves. The X150’s grille was also inspired from the famous 1961 Jaguar E-Type.
The standard XK model has an unlimited top speed of 158 mph whilst the XKR an unlimited top speed of 174 mph. An even faster variant, the XKR-S model was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2012. The rare and inspired colors of the XK/XKR models is the Italian racing red and the British racing green with were produced in limited numbers. The XKR-S gained an additional 40-horsepower over the XKR bringing the 0-60 mph time down to only 4.4 seconds and the top speed up to 300 km/h (186 mph) – making it the fastest Jaguar yet after the Jaguar XJ220. A convertible version of the XKR-S was released in 2012.
Production of the XK ceased in July 2014 without a replacement model until F-Type.
Key features include: Doors Open, Hood Opens and Made of High Quality Diecast.
