Ok, so don’t be put off by the mileage. This car had a new gearbox at circa 50k and a new engine in the early days (no doubt a Nikasil problem). All under Jaguar warranty. So, the true mileage of the mechanics is nearer 100k. There’s so much more to this car though. It has had a full ground-up restoration, with all the important stuff done (replacing the plastic tensioners etc), so many of the parts have actually only covered a few thousand miles. That’s why the odometer reads at 75,000. The car was owned by a racing engineer and he did most of the work himself – it’s a credit to him. All the paperwork is available for inspection. I have just spent £3k getting the rear arches done, with bonded plates, by an expert. Anyone who knows these cars knows these are a major problem and a lot of XK8s are rotting from the inside out, covered with lots of filler. So, there’s no worries on this score with this car. It also had some suspension work done so
that’s all sorted. Four new Pirellis and a 12-month MoT. Just had a service too. It’s ready to go and in my view is spot on. I am only the second owner. The engineer told me that he ordered this car before Jaguar had even confirmed publicly a Supercharged version and, as such, he said this is the second one off the production line, after the demonstrator. I have tried to verify with Jaguar at Gaydon but they don’t have the resources to crosscheck at this stage. No reason to doubt and of course it will add to future value. It’s always difficult to know where to pitch the price of these cars as there’s a wide range. But, the best ones are now commanding strong money and I think this is one such car. I am trying to be realistic though. My intention was always to keep this car as an appreciating classic to be enjoyed on a daily basis, but with two small children and a dog it’s easier to jump in the Subaru. And, these cars need to be driven. Sorry for the long advert, but I want to be up front about this car to avoid timewasters. Thanks for reading.

I am selling this car due to coming of age being 80 years old next year

I have been the proud owner of this car since 2006 its never been on a salted road and as spent a lot of its life in my garage.....

Following on from the iconic Leaping Cats of the past few decades was always a difficult act to follow and certainly didn’t appear to have worked when the XK8 was first launched in 1996!
