Known History

Living up to expectations can be a burden. Consider the handsome Geoff Lawson-penned XK8 that followed in the wheeltracks of such automotive icons as the XK120 and immortal E-type. Like the E-Type before it, the XK8 made its debut at the Geneva motorshow - that of 1996 - and, from launch, was available in either Coupe or Convertible guise. Like its immediate predecessor, the XJS, the original XK8 was more of a Grand Tourer than an outright sports car. It also had the distinction of being the first Jaguar to be powered by an eight cylinder engine. This then, was a cat with strong DNA but also its own distinctive, endearing personality. At the time of the newcomer's unveiling, Jaguar Cars was owned by Ford, as was Aston Martin, and it made sound economic sense for the XK8 and similarly targeted DB7 to share the same platform; which itself was derived from that of the outgoing XJS. The biggest of many differences between new and old, was the adoption of Jaguar's second generation independent rear suspension system, previously found on the XJ40 Saloon. Prior to 2003, power came from either a normally aspirated (XK8) or supercharged (XKR) 4.0-litre version of the company's DOHC V8 AJ26 engine. From 2003 to the end of production in 2006, the 4.2-litre AJ34 unit was employed. In each case, the engine was allied to either a five or six-speed (from 1997 onwards) automatic transmission.


The righthand drive, home market, normally-aspirated XK8 Coupe being sold is a September 2002 model that sports Silver coachwork mated to a full Black leather interior. The vendor rates the bodywork, paintwork, V8 engine and automatic gearbox as all being in 'good' condition and the interior as 'good with excellent walnut woodwork'. YG52 YCB's suitably comprehensive specification includes factory-fitted, heated Recaro seats, climate control and park assist, and this quick cat comes complete with 12 months' worth of MOT. With JLR's latest models constantly raising the profile of the brand, interest in the previous generation of cars is also on the rise. They certainly represent amazing value for money; but then that was always a Jaguar strongpoint.
