|The Jaguar XK8 was launched in 1996 as a direct replacement for the XJS model which had been in production for twenty one years.|
With an urgent need to develop a new car but with a limited budget, the XK8 used the existing XJS floorpan but with a new and more curvaceous body style taking cues from both the classic E-type and the XJ220 supercar.
The XK8 was available in a choice of two body styles, fixed head coupe or convertible. There were also two choices of interior trim, “classic” using traditional walnut veneer and leather upholstery and “sport” with dark stained maple woodwork with half-leather trim.
This stunning example is finished in Carnival red metallic with the preferred Classic Ivory Leather interior with Walnut Veneer and the lovely feel through your fingers wood and leather steering wheel. The other options on this car are the desirable 18″ Centaur Alloys.
On the road these big Coupes are great drivers with the traditional qualities of the Jaguar range whilst having an air of sophistication with the smooth engine and gearbox.
Great history file.
