Launched in 1996, the XK8 replaced the XJ-S. Two body styles were produced, a coupe and a convertible. The car was the first in the Jaguar line-up to use Jaguar's newly developed V8 engine. In 2000, the supercharged XKR was added to the range producing a massive 370 BHP and a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds.

Larger wheels, a subtle rear spoiler, bonnet louvres and a wire mesh front grill were features of the more powerful car. A new range of XK's were produced from 2006 to 2014 until discontinued without a replacement.

Our car, a 2001 XKR Convertible has covered just 62,000 miles from new and is arguably configured in the best combination of Anthracite metallic with a black electric folding roof complimented with Ivory leather sports seats. The optional Classic Pack was added which included colour co ordinated carpets and facia/door top rolls in Warm Charcoal, Burr Walnut veneer and a colour keyed wood/leather steering wheel. The 18" alloy wheels are the 'Milan' split rim design.

With a car of this quality, as expected, the standard specification is plentiful including heated electric seats, climate control, cruise control, foglamps and headlamp wash - however our car has the rare factory fitted Satellite Navigation with discs supplied for the UK and France making this an ideal tourer.

Completing the package, we have the original literature packs with all books and the radio code cards. We have a huge history file with extensive service records including the replacement of the troublesome timing chain tensioners to the improved design.

Spare keys and the locking wheel bolt keys are also present as is the ivory tonneau cover and original storage bag.

All in all, this young classic is well presented and offered at less than a quarter of it's original price! It is ready to enjoy and worthy of consideration.
