JAGUAR XK8

Convertible V8 Auto Entry (1998)

1998 Jaguar XK8 Convertible Automatic. British Racing Green with Ivory Leather. Full Service History with 13 stamps in the book. Living up to expectations can be a burden. Consider the handsome Geoff Lawson-penned XK8 that followed in the wheeltracks of such automotive icons as the XK120 and immortal E-type. Like the E-Type before it, the XK8 made its debut at the Geneva Salon - that of 1996 - and, from launch, was available in either Coupe or Convertible guise. Like its immediate predecessor, the XJS, the original XK8 was more of a Grand Tourer than an outright sports car. It also had the distinction of being the first Jaguar to be powered by an eight-cylinder engine. This then, was a cat with strong DNA but also its own distinctive endearing personality. At the time of the newcomer's unveiling, Jaguar Cars was owned by Ford, as was Aston Martin, and it made sound economic sense for the XK8 and similarly targeted DB7 to share the same platform; which itself was derived from that of the outgoing XJS. The biggest of many differences between new and old, was the adoption of Jaguar's second generation independent rear suspension system, previously found on the XJ40 Saloon. Prior to 2003, power came from either a normally aspirated (XK8) or supercharged (XKR) 4.0-litre version of the company's DOHC V8 AJ26 engine. From 2003 to the end of production in 2006, the 4.2-litre AJ34 unit was employed. In each case, the engine was allied to either a five or six-speed (from 1997 onwards) automatic transmission. This car drives very well and XK8's are gaining interest from the classic car world now. The history file contains the original book pack including service book and invoices on file for the £000s spent on the upkeep of the car. This Jaguar offers luxury topless motoring for MG Midget money. Everything operates as it should including the fully automatic hood. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
