Selling my jaguar xk8-owned since 22/11/2008- almost 12 years
this is an opportunity to purchase a very rare white xk8
there is no mot on vehicle and the vehicle is currently sorned so vehicle will need to be trailered away
this would make a brilliant car to take the groom and best man to a wedding
there are a number of things wrong with the car but once sorted will be an amazing investment
the only reason i am selling the car after 12 years is that i have lost my storage facility and i have no where to store it
bodywork: The body panels are in very good condition through out-however the lacquer is coming off some of the panels. The rear arches were plated about 2 years ago and not looking too bad. There is a small dent at the top part of the pillar on the passenger side. Various marks around the front valance and bonnet. If you like you can contact me and i will video the car and send it to you. This will avoid any misunderstanding on the condition of the car.
mechanics: The engine runs sweet
the instrument cluster is showing errors of abs-air bag-gearbox fault
the gearbox as been looked at by a mechanic and he suggests that the gearbox needs an oil flush and new oil. I have purchased genuine parts from jaguar which include a gearbox oil sump filter, sump gasket and oil. These will be included in the sale of the car.
interior: The interior is excellent. No sagging headliner as this as been completely replaced. Please look at one of the photographs to view the headliner. The dashboard, the leather trim are all in excellent condition
the leather seats are in excellent condition and all the seat adjustments work also they are heated which is great in winter.
the radio and the 6 cd changer (cd unit in the boot) works but the radio display seems to work when it wants to. There is an electric aerial which automatically goes up when the radio is turned on and down when turned offthere is a genuine jaguar handbook folder which contains the service book which as12 service stamps 9 of which are from the main jaguar dealer. Also included in the folder are other books such as the vehicle care book, sales service international directory, security system, drivers handbook
there is a cutting from the original sales brochure from h. A. fox th. Authorised jaguar dealer (see photo) advertising the car. I also have the original key rings that came with the car.
there are 2 keys and 2 key fobs. Both key fobs work which allows you to remotely open the boot, turn the lights on lock and unlock the doors.
there are genuine jaguar over mats which fit into the drivers and passengers footwells which have prevented any wear to the carpets below.
in the boot there is a jaguar plastic solid boot cover which as prevented any damage to the carpet interior from new
the cars mot expired october 2017 and as not been used on the public road since then. However i have been starting the engine on a regular basis and moving it within the storage facility
the instrument cluster as been changed and now shows 51k which is not correct. I would guess th. Actual mileage is approximately 139k
i have a lot of the mot certificates which date back from 2003
date: 2003 mileage 87463
date: 2004 mileage 99794
date: 2005 mileage 116429

date: 2012 mileage 137627
date: 2014 mileage 35073
date: 2015 mileage 35131
date: 2016 mileage 35166
i have the full log book and it is registered at my home address.
please contact me via email or mobile phone if you would like a video of the car or any questions you may have
