The XK8 is a grand tourer car that was launched in 1996 and was the first generation of a new XK series, available in either coupé or convertible body styles and with the new 4.0 litre Jaguar AJ-V8 engine. The 1998 XKR was introduced with an Eaton supercharged version of the engine. Both the XK8 and XKR are electronically limited to a maximum of 155mph, the top speed of its predecessor, the XJS V12, being 158mph. A navigation system and self-levelling xenon headlamps came as standard with the XKR, with Jaguar's adaptive cruise control as an optional feature available on both models. Both come with all leather interior, burr walnut trim and side airbags.
This excellent Jaguar XKR Convertible was supplied new by Stratstone in London on the 11th March 2002 and since then has only covered 19,200 miles. This is confirmed by the service book and MoT history. Finished in Platinum with Warm Charcoal leather interior complemented by birds eye maple woodwork. The car was also supplied new with reverse parking sensors, a navigation system, premium audio system, heated windscreen and a front cup holder. The car has been fully maintained and looked after including replacement timing chain tensioner in 2012. This lovely XKR convertible is supplied with a V5 registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in April 2023, the handbook pack and a file containing a number of invoices. These supercharged Jaguars are superb to drive and are becoming regarded as a modern classic.
