For those who lust after the best XK8 in the Netherlands opens a unique opportunity. This XK8 with a mere 46.000km on the clock would be described by the car salesman with all the possible superlatives typical for cars. Here we purposely avoid those classifications. However, my enthusiasm and conviction for this Jaguar I do want to get across. Let me put it this way; 'good wine needs no bush'. This XK8 from 2001 is from the second, modified, series. Visually recognizable by the chrome trim surrounding the rear lights and the chrome Jaguar trim piece on the boot lid. The seats changed from the first series which creates more cabin space and the engine was technically improved. For those who are not entirely appreciative of the successive XK model, and I hear that around, a chance to buy into the quality of a 2008 automobile. The car was fanatically maintained, service history is present, very recently the car received an extensive big service. A description with the car that salesmen can only dream of, in this case not just a daydream but a dream come true!
Complete specification with automatic climate control, fully electric adjustable seats, infotainment system, traction control, Jaguar stereo with CD changer and steering wheel controls, rear park distance control, 18-inch alloy Jaguar wheels, adjustable steering wheel, etc.
Executed in black metallic with not one trace of usage. No stone chips or scratches to be found, quite tricky on a black car... Never repainted, all paint remains wholly original and lustrous. All the glazing is free from stone chips, the rubbers are nicely soft, and the trim pieces are without weather influences. Evidently this XK8 has always been garage stored.
The beige leather interior smells new. No damages to be found. Supple and clean leather, the bolsters of the seats too are without marks of wear or getting in-and-out of the car. Nice and atmospheric wood on the dashboard. The car has never been smoked in. On the floor new floor mats.
Evidently meticulously clean and undamaged. Factory stickers and plates are all original and remain in their right positions. All the caps in the engine department are all still vibrant of colour. The luggage compartment seems unused, here one finds the space saver under the load floor. The CD changer is also located in the luggage compartment. The 18-inch alloy wheels are free from parking damages and brake dust. Virtually new tires are fitted.
Acquired from the second owner. Complete documentation, service manual, code cars, instruction manuals, all present. Remains damage free. Complete sets of keys. The previous owner even saved the original XK8 brochure, which he had learned by heart in anticipation of buying the car at the time.
