We are proud to present this 1998 Jaguar XK8. The Jaguar XK8
(project code X100) is a grand tourer launched by Jaguar Cars in
1996 and was the first generation of a new XK series. The XK8 was
available in two-door coup or two-door convertible body styles with
the new 4.0-litre Jaguar AJ-V8 engine. The first-generation of the
XK series shares its XJS-derived platform with the Aston Martin
DB7, with both cars tracing their history back to an abandoned
Jaguar development study in the mid-1980s known as XJ41/XJ42, which
had been mooted to be known as the F-Type. The new CATS (Computer
Active Technology Suspension) adaptive suspension, which was
already an option on the coup, was added to the convertible models
in 1997. From 1998 onwards, all models of the XK lineup were fitted
with the Servotronic II power steering. Powering this Jaguar XK8 is
a 4.0 Liter V8 making 290 Horsepower @ 6100 RPM and 290 LB-FT of
torque @ 4250 RPM from factory. Painted in Meteorite Silver
Metallic with Warm Charcoal Leather Interior. Options on this 1998
