The Jaguar XK8 (project code X100) is a grand tourer car that was launched by Jaguar Cars in 1996, and was the first generation of a new XK series. The XK8 was available in coupé or convertible body styles and with the new 4.0-litre Jaguar AJ-V8 engine. In 1998 the XKR was introduced with a supercharged version of the engine. 2003 the engines were replaced by the 4.2-litre AJ34 engines in both the normally aspirated and supercharged versions. The first-generation XK series shares its platform with the Aston Martin DB7. Both cars are derived from the Jaguar XJS, though the platform has been extensively changed. One of the revisions is the use of the second generation of Jaguar's independent rear suspension unit, taken from the XJ40.
This very low mileage, one previous owner car, is described by the vendor as being in superb and virtually new condition. The present owner purchased the vehicle in July 2010 from the original supplying Jaguar main dealer. The mileage of 13,670 is known to be genuine and has a full and completely documented Jaguar Main Dealer Service History. The colour of Quartz Grey metallic suits the vehicle exceptionally well and is considered by many to be the most attractive XK8 body colour.
A unique opportunity to acquire such a superb low mileage XK8.
