At the introduction it could already be foreseen the XK8 would become a future classic car. A timeless, gracious, comfortable and sporty coupe that does not have any direct competitors. With characteristics of the legendary E-type and a build quality that has massively improved since then. It was after all Ford that claimed a serious return on its investments in the Jaguar car company, and you cannot do that by constructing an inferior car. Fitted with a smooth and reliable V8 engine producing 300bhp the car behaves sporty when desired, although above-all comfortable. A Grand Tourer to the core. We have quite a substantial clientele of XK8 owners who service their cars with us, and from experience we can tell you they are reliable and perfectly suitable for daily usage. Additionally the attractive VAT liability car regulations make her highly desirable and affordable to drive. Your associates will see a petrolhead with excellent taste without appearing pretentious, not causing any loss of clients. This way you can combine your automotive hobby with your wallet. Quite rare these moments.
A luxurious and sporty coupe is evidently equipped with sufficient comforting gadgets, a.o; automatic climate control, fully electric adjustable seats, board-computer, smooth black leather, an adjustable steering wheel, traction control, Jaguar Audio system with steering wheel controls and CD changer, 17-inch original XK8 wheels, central locking with key fob, etc.
A classic which potentially could be opted for as liability company car, must of course be representative. A straight and accident free body is evidently a prerequisite. This XK8 is wholly damage free and the paint remains flawless and lustrous. Not one stone chip, or dent, just spotless. Executed in gorgeous Jaguar British Racing Green Metallic. Pristine.
Black leather in excellent condition can be found on the seats, centre console and door cards. All undamaged and original. No significant traces of usage. Nice and undamaged carpeting. The headliner is as new, the car has not been smoked in. Nice burl wooden dashboard. The steering wheel is also fitted with this nice wood and leather. All is neat looking and clearly used with respect.
The neat and clean engine compartment translates the minor usage of this XK. All stickers, plates and original colours on various parts in the engine compartment. Clean and not fettled with. The luggage compartment is seemingly unused. Clean and undamaged. Here one finds the CD changer and the space saver. This XK is fitted with the original 17-inch XK8 wheels which were specifically designed for this model. The car has such a low mileage the original Pirelli tires are still fitted. We can change these for four new ones on your request.
