2000 Jaguar Xk8 Coupe Auto


  • Only 34,700 miles from new

  • Eye-catching Carnival Red exterior with cream leather interior
  • MOT to November 2024

The Appeal

All classic cars are loved, but every so often we find one whose level of cherish really stands out. Here is such a car. 
Bought in December 2006 as a gift from the seller’s father to their mother, the joy this car has brought all concerned is obvious. We are told that whenever it was parked up it would attract a crowd.
It is easy to see why. Its Carnival Red paintwork complements the E-Type influenced lines and the very low mileage is reflected in the condition. The maintenance is best described as meticulous - it has been serviced at the same time every year irrespective of mileage. 
There are some minor cosmetic points that the buyer may wish to get on top of before they develop, but with full service history and long MOT, this car has the makings of one of the best XK8s on the market. 
The XK8 is a brilliant GT and we hope this one finds an equally attentive and enthusiastic new owner.
