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 at 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, was 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.
Offered here is a nice example of Jaguar’s replacement to the XJS. A one former owner example having covered a mere 49,500 miles, it is presented in Antiqua Blue with full black leather interior. The cars impressive service history book is stamped 19 times, the most recent at 49,321 miles. Owned from new until 1999 when the current owner purchased the car, it is in lovely condition throughout and still boasts its original Lancaster Jaguar stickers. The vendor informs us it has been garaged throughout its life and presents well. Completely standard and supplied with a stamped service book, previous MoT test certificates, a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 4th December 2021, this car represents an opportunity to own a low mileage example of the sumptuous XK8.
