Impressive Details and Precision

This 1/18 scale model is a perfect, true-to-scale replica of the original and was meticulously crafted by Beanstalk with an eye for detail. The use of diecast material enhances the model's quality and gives it a realistic weight. Particularly striking are the wheel cutouts and the drilled brakes, mirroring those of the real version. The painted rims and the green metallic paint with the small Jaguar logo on the hood reflect the great design that luxury car manufacturer Jaguar has been offering for decades. A peek inside the interior reveals realistic seats, a detailed dashboard, and even a finely crafted steering wheel.

The Historical Context of the Original

To understand the historical context, let's look back at the year 1998 when this generation of the Jaguar XKR Convertible was first produced. In that year, the popular song "Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears was released, and Google was founded – two events that shaped the era. The XKR Convertible was positioned as an advancement of the Jaguar XK8, featuring numerous technical enhancements and a more powerful engine. The advanced aluminum body and improved safety features made it a milestone for Jaguar.

This magnificent model, part of the collection of Modelly member "LuxuryVJ," provides an excellent opportunity to experience the sophistication and classic design of the Jaguar XKR Convertible up close.
