The 1997 Jaguar XK8 is a luxury grand tourer that was introduced as a replacement for the outgoing XJS model and was the first car to feature Jaguar's all-new AJ-V8 engine. The XK8 was available in both coupé and convertible body styles, both of which were praised for their sleek and timeless design. Under the hood, the XK8 was powered by a 4.0 litre V8 engine that produced 290 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. The engine was paired with a five-speed automatic transmission that delivered smooth and seamless shifts. This powerful combination allowed the XK8 to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 6.7 seconds.
This stylish coupé version of the XK8 presents well in the classic Jaguar colour combination of metallic green with an oatmeal classic interior that benefits from a wood and leather steering wheel, wooden gear knob, automatic climate control, power adjustable seats and larger alloy wheels. Offered to auction with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until March 2024. Potential buyers should note that this car was subject to a category C insurance loss in 2013. Overall, the 1997 Jaguar XK8 is a true masterpiece of automotive engineering that combines sleek styling, impressive performance, and luxurious amenities.
