Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff seen in his Jaguar XKR sports coupe [Video]

Jackie Shroff & his Jaguar XKR

Jackie Shroff is one of the lesser-known car enthusiasts in Bollywood. The veteran actor is known for his sense of fashion and the way he interacts with his fans and photographers. While we have featured several actors and actresses from Bollywood with expensive cars and SUVs, some opt for comfortable and luxurious cars, while others are enthusiasts. Jackie Shroff falls into the second category. He owns a decent collection of cars and bikes, and not many people actually know about it. Here, we have a video where actor Jackie Shroff is seen arriving at an event in his Jaguar XKR 2-door sports coupe.

There are two videos of Jackie Shroff with the Jaguar. In both videos, the veteran actor is seen in the passenger seat of the car. The Jaguar seen in the video is finished in British Racing Green shade with golden-colored alloy wheels—a brilliant combination. Jaguar officially discontinued the XKR from the market in 2014, and the one that Jackie Shroff is driving is a 2008 model. Instead of going for a new one, Jackie Shroff opted for a used example. This has several benefits, mainly monetary. When compared to a brand-new XKR, this one would have been a lot more affordable, and the actor would have saved a lot.

Most owners who buy such cars often tend to maintain them neatly, as repairing and maintaining them is an expensive affair. The Jaguar XKR was actually one of the fastest and most powerful Jaguars sold in the market. It was officially sold in the Indian car market with a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 petrol engine. Available with a 6-speed automatic gearbox as standard, this supercharged V8 petrol engine in the XKR Coupe generated around 510 PS and 625 Nm of peak torque.

The Jaguar XKR was in production till 2014-15, and the brand replaced this model with the F-Type with the same supercharged V8 but in a more powerful state of tune. When Jaguar was selling this car in India, it was sold for around Rs 1.03 crore. It rivaled cars like Porsche 911 Carrera and Maserati GranTurismo. Other than Jackie Shroff, Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor also used to own a Jaguar XKR in Red shade.

In both videos, Jackie Shroff is seen in the co-driver seat of the car. While we have spotted the actor with his other expensive cars and SUVs several times, we are yet to see him behind the steering wheel of these cars. Other than the Jaguar, Jackie Shroff owns cars like the BMW M5, Pontiac Firebird, Bentley Continental GT, Toyota Fortuner, Toyota Innova, Isuzu V-Cross, a vintage Jaguar SS100, and a fully restored 1968 model Fiat 1100 sedan. The Pontiac Firebird mentioned here in the post is actually a car that the actor himself worked on and restored. Other than cars, Jackie also owns bikes like the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 and a custom-made Royal Enfield motorcycle inspired by the bike from the Hollywood movie Ghost Rider. Jackie Shroff recently starred in several web series, and one of his recent movies to be released on OTT was ‘Mast Mein Rehne Ka.’
