November 2021 Classics Auction

 
  Lot 40
 

1999 Jaguar XK8
Only 29,471 miles *** NO RESERVE ***

Registration - V467 KOH

Chassis No. - SAJAC41E7YNA00139

M.O.T. - October 2022

Odometer - 29,471

Little is known about this XK8 that was first registered in September 1999, other than it appears to have had just one previous keeper. Finished in a dark shade of blue and trimmed in cream hide, it rides on the standard fit five-spoke alloy wheels. The vendor regards the V8 engine and automatic transmission as ‘excellent’ and the coupe bodywork, paintwork and upholstery as ‘good’. He adds that there is ‘a small crack in the driver’s side corner of the windscreen’, but that the car ‘drives perfectly’. He is now offering the Jaguar complete with a full service history and a current MOT valid to October 24.

Like the E-Type before it, the XK8 made its debut at the Geneva Salon and was immediately available in either coupe or convertible guise. It also had the distinction of being the first Jaguar to be powered by an eight-cylinder engine. This then, was a cat with strong DNA but also its own distinctive personality. At the time of the newcomer’s unveiling, Jaguar Cars was owned by Ford, as was Aston Martin, and it made sound economic sense for the XK8 and similarly targeted DB7 to share the same platform; which itself was derived from that of the outgoing XJS. The biggest of many differences between new and old, was the adoption of Jaguar’s second generation independent rear suspension system, previously found on the XJ40 Saloon. Prior to 2003, power came from either a normally aspirated (XK8) or supercharged (XKR) 4.0-litre version of the company’s DOHC V8 AJ26 engine.

In summary:

  • Just two registered keepers from new
  • Comes complete with full service history and valid MOT
  • Being sold with ‘No Reserve’
