The XK8 was launched in March 1996 to replace the XJ-S. It was initially available with a coupe body, but the convertible model arrived at the end of the year. Power was provided by an all-new 4.0 litre V8 engine producing 294bhp, coupled to a five speed automatic gearbox. Generally considered to be a beautiful looking car with similarities to the original E-Type, the XK8 still turns heads today. Just over 90000 models were produced by the time production ceased in 2005.

This 1999 example is described as being in exceptional condition throughout and is finished in the rare colour of Alpine Green (used for just one year of production), complimented by an ivory leather interior. Originally supplied by H. A. Fox, the Jaguar has been regularly serviced and maintained by the same company, as the service book verifies. We are told that the XK8 drives beautifully, as one would expect, and is clearly a fine example and tremendously good value for money. In its colour and condition, one could be forgiven for confusing it at first glance with another, but slightly more expensive, quality sports car!

All handbooks are supplied, as well as the aforementioned service book and the V5C registration certificate.
