Offered for sale; a beautiful Jaguar XK8 with a 4.0 liter eight cylinder engine. A feline that beyond the comfortable ‘snore’ in city traffic, can also really growl when given space. Not a raucous growl, but contained potency. The XK8 was unveiled at the Geneva motor show exactly 35 years later than the E-Type.
The XK8 was built on the XJ-S platform, which in turn was based on the XJ6 platform. The 8 cylinder engine with 32 valves and 294 HP was newly developed especially for the XK8. This engine offers great comfort and is fast when desired. The maintenance of the car is relatively inexpensive, because many a Ford part was borrowed in the composition of the XK8.
The color composition of the ‘British Racing Green’ and the beige ‘Cashmere’ upholstery match the appearance of the car; an understated beauty with beautiful lines. The first owner of the car really ticked (almost) all options, including the best stereo system the brand delivered, by Harman Kardon.
With an average highway consumption of 1 in 10, this eight-cylinder is, for its capacity, economical.I'm interested in this object
