We purchased this vehicle from a dealer friend of ours in the north shore area of Chicago, Highland Park to be exact. This is a super clean, non smoker vehicle that we just serviced and inspected, it is ready to roll today.

I’ve already had three calls on this vehicle since it was listed on our website.. two of them came in before the car had even arrived on the truck from Chicago. These A5s are fairly sought after cars and there aren’t too many on the market at any one time.

2011 Jaguar XKR

Here kitty, kitty, kitty… nobody designs cars quite like Jaguar, no matter how many times they’ve been sold or restructured or whoever owns them now, for more that 80 years Jaguar has been designing beautiful cars and this 2011 XKR is no exception.

1963 Jaguar XKE Coupe

Modern Jaguar XKs attempt to draw certain design elements from the iconic Jaguar XKE of the 1960s. I took this photo at Elkhart Lake, WI’s Road America during the HAWK Vintage Race Weekend with Brian Redman, Sunday, July 15, 2012.

Sears Imports purchased this vehicle from its only owner recently, a gentleman who was ready to do some downsizing. It’s a very lightly used 2011 model with 8,930 miles on its odometer. The car is in as new condition, inside and out with a perfectly clean Carfax vehicle history report.
2011 Jaguar XKR
The interior of this car is amazing, condition is ‘as new’, but the overall layout and design is comfortable and luxurious… a true gentleman’s grand touring car. The R designation of this car means that this car is packed with a 5.0 liter V8 cranking out 510 Horse Power and 461 lb-ft of torque… big numbers by anyone’s standard.

Looking stealthy in all black, this car is available today at Sears Imports for $77,900, stock# 20389.

Don’s collection is made up of expertly restored cars that are as clean underneath as they are up above. As they cross the block in Indianapolis late this morning, I can only hope Don is looking down, watching over the proceedings as some of his cars are passed on to new stewards of the collector car hobby. Hopefully the new owners will take as good care of them, and have as much pride in the, as Mr. Sears did.
