|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 one of the last XKRS only built March to Sept 2005 and finished in stunning Bay blue with Classic Ivory Leather interior
She has the correct S Spec inc badging, trim, wheels, kickplates etc.
With only 2 owners from new every service has been carried out on a regular basis and the history file is full of service invoices.
On the road these big Cats are great drivers cars with the traditional qualities of the Jaguar range whilst having an air of sophistication with the smooth engine and gearbox.
This is one of the rarest XK8s we have offered and we believe a modern classic in the making.
