Stratstone Jaguar has pledged to donate up to
£5,000 to The Royal British Legion, raised through the sale of its
limited edition Jaguar XFRs.
The announcement was made in the week that Stratstone
dealerships across the UK commenced the first customer deliveries
of the strictly limited exclusive models.
Only 50 of the Jaguar Stratstone Le Mans Limited Edition will
ever be built and Stratstone dealerships across the UK are already
reporting exceptionally strong demand for the special edition.
A keen corporate supporter of the Legion and its work,
Stratstone has pledged to donate £100 for every special edition XFR
model sold nationwide to support the 2010 Poppy
Given the unprecedented levels of interest in the XFR,
Stratstone expects to achieve its £5,000 fundraising target within
the next couple of weeks.
Stratstone's managing director, James Brearley, said: "The
Limited Edition is the definitive sporting saloon and no detail has
"Already deemed a future classic, demand for this iconic model
is exceptionally high which is great news for this year's Poppy
Appeal, a very worthy cause given the almost daily news of the

The Legion's Director of National Events and Fundraising Russell
Thompson OBE said: "This is an exceptionally generous donation by
Stratstone. In these austere times, every penny raised is
appreciated and will help us continue our vitally important
"It is a beautiful car, but sadly," Mr Thompson added, "I am not
sure I can afford one."
In addition to supporting the Legion's Poppy Appeal, purchasers
of the XFR Stratstone Le Mans Limited Edition will also have the
opportunity to join over 200 like-minded Stratstone customers for
the 79th annual Le Mans 24 hour race in June 2011.
