2003 Jaguar XK8 For Sale

The original XK8 was launched in 1996 as a convertible or coupe. Equipped with the all new 290hp aluminum V8, 5 speed automatic transmission, and 17" wheels, the successor to the XJS was very well received by enthusiasts and the press alike for being a reborn example of the iconic Jaguar XKE. The all curve styling was very different from the XJS but brought back memories of the E-Type. As all Jaguars, the XK8 pampers the driver and his passenger with Connoly leather, rich wood veneers and all the comfort expected.
On the performance side, the 290hp engine provides plenty of power giving the XK8 performance similar to the Mercedes SL500. When it was introduced, the XK8 was the first car totally designed and conceived following the Ford take over in the late 80s. Largely redesigned in 1995 was the first car to benefit from Ford large investments and the XK8 turned out to be a well engineered and reliable car. In 1999 Jaguar took coveted 1st place in the JD Power owner satisfaction survey.

Seldom does a car like this very special Jaguar XK8 come along. In 2003, only 985 coupes were built which makes it quite rare. This particular car is a 2 owner original as verified by CARFAX and never damaged. What makes this XK8 really so special is that both owners continued to have all service performed by the Jaguar dealerships since new. The CARFAX report again documents those service records. The car is in impeccable condition despite the mileage. The original Phoenix red is a vintage sporty non-metalic color reminiscent of 1950's and 60's colors. The previous owners certainly treasured this car as is evident not only by the overall condition but also how it drives. It fire up instantly and settles to a quiet idle. Simply applying the slightest pressure to the gas pedal propels the car effortlessly to a quick pace. The Jaguar XK8 is a light feeling, nimble handling car that is part of it's heritage.

This car is not only a genuine treasure but a usable future collectible. Do not miss this opportunity to purchase this very special and rare Jaguar XK8
