I have an XKR Conv. on order for March delivery. However, I now have an opportunity to purchase at list price the Silverstone model. Only 250 will be sent to the U.S. It lists for almost $12k additional. Does anyone have an opinion on resale value vs. standard XKR. Performance is about the same with better braking and possibly better handling with the larger tires. Any comments???

Go for it ! plain simple especailly at list as many dealers are charging over list.<p>acceleration is identical but you get the 20" wheels, handling pack, and Brembo brakes. These sell for 6000 UKP in the UK, I've been trying to get them here in the US and will be probably pay between $ 10 to 13 for them. So you're actually paying for the goodies and getting the badging and extra value as a bonus.<p>It's indeed only 250 for the US, 100 for UK and 25 for Canada so resale will be higher than a regular XKR. If you look at previous special edition Jaguars, such as the TWR XJS, they are much more valuable than the regular cars.<p>Pascal<br>Miami, FL<br>2000 XKR Coupe / 99 XJR / 72 E-type<br>

<i>Congratulations! I just took delivery of<br>a Silverstone, and can't get the smile off my<br>face.</i><p>You have an awesome-looking car, Dennis. Where are you located? I saw a silver XKR convertible on the road here in town (College Station) last night, but didn't get a glimpse of the wheels to see if it was a Silverstone (although I doubt it due to the limited availability of them). I know it was an XKR because I saw the hood louvers in my rear view mirror. The owner was probably as surprised to see me as I was to see them...I think we must be the only two XKs in this town.<p><br>--Alan

The closest one<br>was a 2000 XKR which was silver with the black<br>top.<p>That one is actually owned by a former boss of<br>mine at a previous employer.<p>Thx,<br>dennis<p></i>
