Stratton Motor Company have the pleasure to be able to offer this amazing example of a Jaguar XK8

1998 Jaguar XK8 with only 95341 miles from new finished in Silver

35 years after the launch of the sensational E-Type, Jaguar stunned the motoring world once again with the introduction of the XK8 coupé at the Geneva Salon in March 1996, the convertible version appearing in April at the New York Motor Show, co-incidentally the venue chosen to debut the E-Type roadster in 1961.

Both versions went on sale in October 1996, advertisements headlined ‘The Cat is Back’ and ‘The Spirit of its Ancestor’ reminding prospective buyers of the car’s heritage, which was further reinforced by a host of styling cues borrowed from its illustrious forbear.

The first hint at what might succeed the E-Type had appeared as long ago as 1978, when Pininfarina displayed its Jaguar XJ Spider, a hypothetical ‘F-Type’, at the Birmingham Motor Show. Although Jaguar’s new owners Ford cancelled the F-Type programme, preferring to use the concept to develop the Aston Martin DB7, there remained strong visual links between Pininfarina’s styling exercise, Ian Callum’s DB7 and the XK8.

The XK8 though, was not aimed at the same market as the E-Type; direct successor to the XJS, Jaguar’s luxurious new Grand Routier had the likes of the Mercedes-Benz SL in its sights. Indeed, the XK8 was based on the XJS floorpan, though its V8 power unit – Jaguar’s first – was entirely new.

The all-aluminium, four-cam, 32-valve unit displaced 4.0 litres and produced 281bhp, an output good enough for a top speed of 156mph. Power was transmitted via a ZF five-speed automatic gearbox with ‘J-gate’ change to the limited-slip differential. Traction control was standard.
