"The XK was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1996 and was last manufactured in July 2014. However, the redesigned XK debuted in 2005 at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany, styled by Jaguar's chief designer, Ian Callum. Its grille was also inspired from the famous 1961 Jaguar E-Type. Aside from the enhanced performance, Jaguar decided to add more in the way of trim and colour options inside and out for the Portfolio. The subtle changes to the XK's exterior offer little clue as to the car's changed personality. There's no yawning gap between old and new, but this XK offers a sharper, more precise driving experience and one that keen drivers will relish.
This lovely example, finished in black with ivory leather interior, is the desirable Portfolio model which enjoys all the factory upgrades and cosmetic enhancements which made this so popular when it was first manufactured. It comes with an electric hood in black, full air conditioning, electric heated seats with built in cooling function, CD player, USB connection and satellite navigation to name just a few extras. It is powered by the mighty five litre, V8 engine mated to its smooth automatic gearbox providing more than enough power to propel this luxury sports convertible to speeds far exceeding our UK speed limit!"
