"Jaguar cars today are designed in Jaguar Land Rover's engineering centres at the Whitley plant in Coventry and at their Gaydon site in Warwickshire with manufacturing in the Castle Bromwich assembly plant in Birmingham. The Jaguar XK series was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show on 5th March 1996 with the first generation of the series, the XK8, replacing the XJS and available as a coupé and convertible. It was the first eight-cylinder vehicle produced since the Daimler 250. The XK8 came with 17 alloy wheels, leather interior, air conditioning, burr walnut trim and side airbags as standard.
This example of Jaguars XK8 was first registered on 5th January 1998 and with four previous keepers it is presented in blue with black full leather. Showing just 75,000 miles from new, this car is in good condition and we are informed that mechanical works, such as the rebuilt front suspension and brakes have been performed by specialists Thruxton Jaguar. Offered with a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until June 2020, this is a sound example of a fabulous touring car.
