Time to get your hands on an ultra-low mileage future classic for
less than the price of just about any new convertible available.
This 2000 Jaguar XK8 has all the modern power and amenities you
want, and it's the kind of pristinely preserved package that will
always make a terrific first impression.
It's hard not to fall in love with a Jag that sparkles perfectly when the metallic elements of the original Champagne paint come out the moment the sunshine hits this smooth body. And if you must drive in bad weather, the tan soft top has the kind of coordinating hue that's perfect for the best Europeans. This car has been babied for its low-mileage life, and so the panels and their shine look straight from the Coventry, England factory. Jaguars have that timeless appearance of a sleek sports car with luxurious touches, and so it's hard to tell this convertible is 17-years old because it fits so well into the company's linage.
The tan leather seats are pure Jaguar elegance that's delivered in a level of excellence that only the British seem to have mastered. They're all-day comfortable, yet supportive enough for spirited driving. And thanks to quality materials, they look as well presented as the exterior. Because this is a modern classic, you can expect plenty of modern luxury nestled within the glossy wood trim, including a power tilt steering wheel, power steering, power locks, cruise control, power seats, and a great-sounding AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer. And beyond comfort, a modern car also means a much safer ride with features such as dual airbags and anti-lock brakes. But your favorite features will be the power convertible top and power windows. They mean you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. Plus, with automatic climate control and heated seats, you can enjoy top down motoring nearly all year long.
Under that bonnet (hood) is a very tidy and original 4.0-liter fuel-injected V8. This motor is famous for combining the engineering talents of Ford with Jaguar's flair for driving passion. It purrs with buttery smoothness but can growl with the biggest cats when you plant your right foot. This convertible was built to be your ultimate grand touring getaway car, and so the motor is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission (utilizing the iconic J-gate shifter.) It gives you the freedom for spirited driving or overdrive cruising. The European engineered full independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and 17-inch factory alloy wheels means this Jag begs for the backroads.
This beautiful sports car is in the ideal preserved condition with its original owner's manual and averaging less than 600 miles annually. So yes, this is exactly what you want when looking for a great car today and a great investment for tomorrow. But at this value price, this Jaguar is sure to run out of our showroom quickly.
