We are delighted to offer for sale this lovely Jaguar XK8 Coupe. Finished Topaz metallic with a Magnolia  leather interior, the car presents very well and has covered just 67'000 miles.

 

The bodywork is in very good condition. The paintwork showing only the very merest of marks, it is rust and corrosion free and all the usual XK8 weak spots are good. The car has spent much of it's life in Spain and has only fairly recently been re-registered in the UK. The warmer/drier Spanish climate has obviously been kind to the metalwork!

 

Inside the car too can confidently be described as being in excellent order. The leather is excellent including driver's seat, the wood finishers and trim are like new and headliner has at some point been re-trimmed so is free from sagging. Almost everything on the car still works as Jaguar intended including electric windows, electric seats, electric mirrors (passenger side mirror is temperamental), air-con, original Jaguar stereo with CD changer. Even the electric aerial works.

 

On the road the XK8 drives very nicely. Starts without issue and soon reaches and maintains a steady temperature. No bumps, clunks or rattles from the suspension, lots of power form the 4.0 V8 that is transferred to the road effortlessly thanks to the 5 speed automatic gearbox with ‘Sport’ function. The car benefits from having had the plastic timing gear upgraded to the latest generation steel tensioners/guides. I have personally driven around 200 miles in the car and the car performs very well.

 

The original wallet pack and service books are with the car. There are some early service stamps up to 2003, some paperwork in Spanish helping document the car's time there and then a service stamp/receipt for a major service that the car received in March 2019 at 64'000 miles.

 

Car will be supplied with a full MOT and detail valet at asking price.
