Jaguar XK8 4.0 V8 – 1997

Very neat Jaguar XK8 4.0 V8.

Isn’t this one of the most beautiful shapes in automotive history? In addition to its relative, the E-type 1 is one of the most beautiful cars ever made. Take a look at the photos from the side, a car to just stare at for fifteen minutes, lovely in the driveway with the sun shining. But driving is also part of it and this XK with 4 liter 8 cylinder engine does that perfectly. It has been meticulously maintained by jaguar specialist G and G in Heinkenszand. Below is a summary of what has been done.

The color of the car is Sapphire Blue Metallic in combination with an Oatmeal colored interior. Beautiful combination!
It is a Dutch car, with closing NAP, two keys and a very full maintenance history.

We have extensively driven the car and that is a privilege. Jaguars are driver’s cars and it all feels perfect. Sitting on the comfortable seats, with a view of the many meters (the three above the center console are a popular option), enough power and a soft-shifting automatic transmission.

The XK has had all of its maintenance and servicing done on time.
The infamous chain tensioners have also been reviewed.
We have placed the XK for control and inspection at G&G autoservice, the Jaguar specialist. He has maintained the car for some time and believes that this is a beautiful and neat example.
The maintenance history is therefore phenomenal. A small summary of what has been done/replaced in recent years:

– regular oil changes
– chain modification incl. water pump etc.
– heater pump plus hoses replaced
– new hydraulic power steering line
– roof headliner
– window mechanism
– automatic transmission previously overhauled, later flushed and software optimized
– new differential
– dinitrol anti-rust treatment
– drive shafts/Poly-buses renewed

This Jaguar XK8 comes with two keys and 1 remote control
