Launched in 1996 the XK series from Jaguar was created to replace
the XJS series. It was actually the first V8 car produced by Jaguar
since the Daimler 250 back in the 60s. With its sporty look
combined with luxury, the 03 XJ8 you see here has to be one of the
nicest looking series they have produced. The front grill,
headlights, and total stance echo the E type Jaguars which proved
to be one of the most desirable sports cars out there. This car has
had a ton of work done to it and is in great condition. It has
101,600 miles on the odometer but only 600 miles ago it was
completely gone through with a ton of components being replaced and
repaired. Due to a problem with an oil cooler hose the original
engine locked up so a 2004 4.2L V8 motor with 55,650 miles was
installed. Despite the odometer reading the majority of the car has
about half of that on it. Check out the following table to get an
idea of what all was done to the car.
Oil cooler hose
Coolan reservoir tank
Heater hose junction and hoses
Upper and lower radiator hoses
Fuel, air, and oil filters
Radiator and condensor flushed
Transmission filter, pan and gasket
Power antenna motor and mast
Seat control modules
Ceramic brakes (front and rear)
Hood and trunk struts
1000 amp battery
Front and rear sway bar end links w/bushings
Front and rear Bilstein shocks
Right and left top shock mounts
Brake light switch
Convertible top lock hydraulic hoses
Convertible top boot
Windshield pillars recovered
New front mats
As you can see this car has had a lot of work done to bring it to
the great condition it is in today. Due to all of these repairs the
car has a long life ahead of it. All of the work has been
documented with the receipts to prove it. It has been looked over
by a Jaguar dealer and has no issues. The car also received 1
repaint in 2015 when it was painted in its original dark Blue
color. It pairs nicely with the rebuilt Black power convertible top
that raises/lowers smoothly without issues. Customizations include
the wheels which are original but have been powder coated Black
with 1 inch spacers installed. It really adds to the tough look of
the car and always gets complements. Other than that the car is
stock with all of the factory options. The interior features all
Beige leather with woodgrain on the dash, center console and wheel.
It is very comfortable and the upholstery is in good shape.
If you are in the market for an affordable luxury car then look no
further. Not only does this car give you all the modern comforts
but also adds some style with a great looking exterior.
Take it home for only $15,000.00!
