The Appeal

The Jaguar XK8 is a grand tourer that combines the luxury and comfort of a high-end saloon with the power and performance of a sports car. Indeed, the pre-2001-facelift version is often regarded as one of the last 'true-to-tradition' tourers, with nostalgic styling and perky, exciting performance.

It is no surprise then that these cars are plentiful and popular on the classic car scene.  But good examples of these E-Type evoking GTs are particularly in demand.   Buyers look for low mileage, good and original specification and clear evidence of careful owners. 

This XK8 ticks all of those boxes..  In fact, it's barely run in.  As such it is about as close to buying a brand new example as it seems possible to get, 20+ years after they left production. 

Finished in rare Aquamarine with ivory interior, it has only covered 14,445 miles.  A full Jaguar service history indicates those caring owners.  Recent prepared for sale including four new tyres, full wheel alignment, new headlining and a new rear view mirror.  It makes a perfect weekend cruiser or a show-stopping addition to your collection.  A rare opportunity and one for the buyer to cherish.
