Launched in 1996 the XK8 was a replacement for the very long running XJS. It was available with a choice of coupe or convertible body styles and with or without a supercharger. Instead of the XJS 4 litre straight six Jaguar fitted the XK8 with their all new 4 litre V8. Our car dates from 2004 when Jaguar had made a host of changes to improve the experience. This included increasing the engine size to 4.2L.
The Xk8 features fully electric and heated seats, electric roof, satellite navigation, cruise control and automatic transmission.
Although the car has back seats, they can only be considered of the ‘occasional’ type as they are not very big.
