Jaguar XK8: Buying guide and review (1996-2006)

Jaguar XK8: Buying guide and review (1996-2006) Classic and Performance Car
Jaguar XK8 Jaguar XK8 Jaguar XK8 Jaguar XK8 Jaguar XKR
It took a long time for the Jaguar XJS to be accepted in the classic world, but years before that happened its successor, the XK8, was heartily embraced by classic car fans. It’s easy to see why; where the XJS looks awkward the XK8 is svelte, beautifully built and great to drive. Packed with modern equipment the XK8 is also utterly usable and to cap it all this is a car that’s proved to be dependable as long as it’s looked after.
 
With the XK8 and its supercharged sibling the XKR being at the stage where supply exceeds demand, this is one of the most affordable classics around, so you can afford to be choosy when buying. There’s a choice of coupé or convertible, both bodystyles being offered with a normally aspirated (XK8) or supercharged (XKR) V8. With even the slowest edition being capable of an electronically limited 155mph performance is guaranteed, yet 30mpg is possible if you drive with restraint.
 
Thanks to its modernity the Jag comes with all of the kit you’d expect of a luxury grand tourer, such as electric seats, windows and mirrors, climate control and leather trim. There’s plenty of safety kit too, including driver and passenger airbags plus anti-lock brakes. That luxurious cabin is suitable only for two though; the rear seats are next to useless, but if you want to carry no more than two people and you want incredible value for money, there’s no good reason to overlook the Jaguar XK8 and XKR.
 
Which one to buy?
 
The earlier cars (with the 4.0-litre engine) weren’t as well developed as the later 4.2-litre editions, which is why the earlier variants tend to be cheaper. There’s little difference in demand between XK8 and XKR or coupé and cabrio; there’s a buyer for anything as long as it’s in good condition. Despite this, XKRs are worth more than equivalent XK8s while cabrios are more valuable than equivalent coupés. So if you’re on a budget you’ll get the most for your money by buying an XK8 coupé; if you want an investment, the most collectible of the lot is likely to be the XKR convertible.
 
What equipment is fitted can also make a difference to values and desirability. Buyers love factory-fit options that improve a car’s spec, with heated seats popular, along with stereo upgrades and Recaro seats. The latter was rarely chosen, especially on the XK8, but you’re more likely to find them in an XKR.
 
The factory-fit navigation is outdated now so not worth seeking out, but if you can find a car with Brembo brakes that’s a definite plus. Wheels are a matter of taste as the 20-inch rims can look overblown or they might look superb – it’s just a matter of preference. But even if you like the look of them, check out the ride first. An XKR on 20-inch rims doesn’t feature anything like a magic carpet ride...

Common problems
 
• Corrosion is unlikely to be taking hold, unless the car’s been crunched. The only exception is on some very early cars, which can suffer from corrosion in the front footwells and rear wheelarches.

• Expect tight, even panel gaps, but even low-speed knocks can take their toll, especially as parking sensors aren’t fitted to all XK8s and visibility isn’t great. Check the central jacking point up front along with the radiator, and on an XKR inspect the intercooler too; they can all be damaged by the car bottoming out on speed bumps.

• Early V8s could be destroyed by their Nikasil-coated cylinder bores being damaged by high-sulphur petrol; post-2000 engines have conventional steel liners. The earlier powerplants can’t be rebored, which is why some cars had fresh powerplants under warranty; chassis numbers 001036 to 042775 were affected. A tag on the nearside of the block denotes a replacement V8. The VIN indicates what type of cylinder liners the engine has; a six-digit sequence at the end means Nikasil liners, while an A then five digits means steel liners.

• The secondary timing chain gets thrown off after the plastic top tensioner has cracked. The engine is rarely wrecked, but a new set of chains and tensioners will be needed.

• On the XKR, the rubber hose hidden below the supercharger perishes. Called the valley pipe, it’s easy enough to renew but this entails removing the supercharger. The hose should be renewed every eight years; some owners take this opportunity to fit a smaller pulley, to increase boost and power.

• All XKs have power steering; the system is reliable but the track rod ends wear out, so feel for vague steering.

• Feathering around the edges of the front tyres betrays wear in the front wishbone bushes combined with tired front wheelbearings.

• It’s worth finding an XK8 with Computer-Active Technology Suspension (CATS). Standard on the XKR, XK8 owners had to pay extra for it – but it’s worthwhile. This adjusts the dampers between hard and soft for better cornering, anti-dive under braking and anti-squat under acceleration. However, CATS dampers are costly compared with the standard items.

• The standard brakes are superb, but the Brembo system provides truly awesome stopping power. There are no common issues, but aftermarket discs tend to wear quickly and judder, while the front callipers of the Brembo system need to be cleaned every three years or so, to stop the pads binding in the sliders.

Summary and prices
 
With low prices, and excellent specialist support, it really is a great time to buy a Jaguar XK8, and there are cars out there to suit most budgets. If you’re feeling very brave, there are quite a few examples from just £2000. Beware though; you’ll almost certainly need to spend the same again to get the car into road-worthy condition. Spend £4000-£8000 to begin with, and there’s a great choice of metal on the market. The very best standard models will command up to around £12,000. 
 
The much sportier XKR model carries a slight premium, with decent cars generally sitting between the £9000-£12,000 mark. Top low-mileage examples are still trading for north of £15,000.

  • Jaguar XK8 4.0 V8 Automatic - Full Service History - Mot Dec - 4 Owners

    £3,450 £3,450

    1999 JAGUAR XK8 4.0 V8 Automatic - An Appreciating Clic Sports Car At a glance: 1999 Jaguar XK8 4.0 litre V8 automatic. Full Service History 137,411 miles Rebuilt gearbox and new torque converter at 118,407 miles Jaguar ‘Meteorite’ smoke silver bodywork Cream ‘Oatmeal’ leather interior with walnut trim MOT until December 2018 Book pack with owners manual, leaflets and service history book Huge folder of receipts for servicing and repairs Private registion number worth £500 included in the sale The model:The Jaguar XK8, a luxury grand tourer, was produced by Jaguar from 1996, superceding the XJ-S, and was the first geneion of a new XK series. The XK8 was available in coupé or convertible body styles and with the new 4.0-litre Jaguar AJ-V8 engine. The first-geneion XK series shares its Jaguar XJS-derived platform with the Aston Martin DB7, both cars tracing their history back to a Jaguar development study in the mid-1980s known as XJ41/XJ4. Development began in 1992, with design work starting earlier in late 1991. By October 1992 a design was chosen and later frozen for production in 1993. Prototypes were built from December 1993 after the XK (code name X100) was given formal approval and design patents were filed in June 1994. Development concluded in 1996, with the car being unveiled in March of that year and on sale from October 1996, eventually finishing production in 2005 to be replaced by the new XK. The history of this car:This car was first registered to a Mr Starley of Bournemouth on the 25th June 1999 who is named on the original bill of sale for £53,388.11. This car has had only 4 owners to date, with the last owner since 2010. ​The specification:This car is presented in Jaguar ‘Meteorite’ silver which is a stunning smokey silver/gold. The interior features clic ‘Oatmeal’ leather seats and burr walnut wood trim with leather detailing. The car also had factory options of heated front seats, full size spare wheel, cruise control and boot mounted CD multichanger. With all of the optional accessories the bill came to a whopping £53,388.11. To put that figure into historical perspective, I bought a 3 bedroom semi detached house two years later in 2001 for £72,000, so this was a very expensive and highly desirable car when new. Mileage:The car has covered 137,411 miles, an average of roughly 7,400 miles per year. Service history:Fully documented service history with fully stamped service book, plus receipts for extra servicing carried out more often than the manufacturer’s recommendation, as follows:  25/06/99        Westover Jaguar                 10 miles (pre-delivery) 02/09/99        Westover Jaguar                 5467 miles   01/03/00        Westover Jaguar                 9470 miles   ​11/09/00        Westover Jaguar                 14607 miles 17/01/01        Westover Jaguar                 20461 miles 21/06/01        Westover Jaguar                 25213 miles 23/01/02        Westover Jaguar                 29893 miles 27/06/02        Westover Jaguar                 33302 miles             30/10/03        Westover Jaguar                 39553 miles             04/02/05        Westover Jaguar                 50798 miles 27/01/06        Westover Jaguar                 59221 miles 29/05/08        Dorset Jag Centre               77596 miles 17/02/10        Jacksons Select                  97164 miles 10/02/11        St Christophers                   103612 miles           06/02/12        St Christophers                   108104 miles 01/02/13        St Christophers                   114208 miles 05/02/14        St Christophers                   120909 miles 02/02/15        Marina Jaguar Specialist   125900 miles 27/01/16        Marina Jaguar Specialist   130657 miles Current mileage 137,411, plus mes of receipts for works carried out including: Full gearbox rebuild and new torque converter at 118,407 miles from The Gearbox Specialist in Bournemouth at a cost of £2,248.80 Leather seat renovation in September 2014 New battery with 5 year warranty in 2016, valid until 2021. Matching Pirelli tyres all round with plenty of tread. Re-commissioning works recently carried out between December 2017 and Feb 2018 included new rocker cover gasket, thermostat, water pump, new plugs, brake overhaul and a new MOT at a total cost of £1,437.98. As you can see, this car has been cherished and pampered all its life, and a mive amount has been spent to keep it in tip-top mechanical condition. On the road:The car drives superbly and feels like a true luxury Grand Tourer. It’s a real joy to drive any journey, long or short. As I have always found with Jaguars, I tend to pop out for pint of milk and end up doing an enjoyable 50 mile round trip. Driving Jaguars from this era is quite an addictive experience! The car starts first time, and ticks over like a Swiss watch. The car has light and responsive steering and excellent braking, whilst the smooth engine and gearbox gives it excellent acceleion and a purposeful road presence. At the time it was light-years better than the competition. These wonderful Jaguars can realistically be used as an everyday car or just as a weekend clic cruiser. Engine:This car is fitted with the AJ-V8 engine, a 3996cc 32 valve fuel injected V8 with an impressive 294BHP. The engine runs very sweetly and performs as it should and is effortless for around town driving, whilst this big cat can provide suitable pace and roar when encouraged to do so. When acceleing on a motorway slip-road you are reminded of the potency of this super smooth yet gutsy V8 engine. Transmission:The automatic gearbox (completely rebuilt with new torque converter at 118,407 miles) is very smooth and changes exactly as it should. MOT:The car has MOT until December 2018, with only two advisories; both rear brake pads wearing thin. There are no advisories for corrosion, which can afflict these cars and be very costly to remedy. Accident:Regrettably, the car suffered a low speed frontal impact when the owner had a slight altercation with the front wall of their bungalow in May 2014. They had just moved to a new home, and unfortunately the owner miscalculated the length of their new driveway. Regrettably these days when you so much as clip a wing mirror, insurance companies do tend to write cars off prematurely, so in 2014 the car was clified as an insurance write off and given Category C status. The car only required minimal repairs, which were subsequently carried out by a professional repairer, as the owner was keen to keep his pride and joy on the road. There is an itemised receipt for the repair works which were; front nearside headlamp, bumper retainer, bumper support, grille and spoiler, plus labour and paint which came to £2473.90 on 3rd September 2014 and a subsequent VIC check took place on 8th October 2014. Condition:This is a well-kept and much loved car destined to be a future clic. There are a few scuffs and grazes to the front and rear bumpers and a few signs of wear here and there, but if the bumpers were repainted, and a (her ugly but functional) weld repair to the driver’s side rear sill were improved cosmetically, it would be a very smart looking car. We had quotes for around £450 to carry out all the cosmetic repairs, but will leave that option to the new owner. All in all I think anyone with reasonable expectations will be delighted with this car, which could be enjoyed as it is, or cosmetically improved at the new owners discretion. Pricing:The value of these cars can only go up in the future. The rusty old examples are vanishing rapidly and the good ones are becoming scarce. Showroom examples (if you can find one) can often fetch up to £10K so this car could be a great investment. Many predict these cars are going to rise sharply in value over the coming years, as they are now gaining clic car status. This car is priced well below others in comparable condition due to the Category C status, at a very attractive £3,450. It also has the benefit of full service history and a rebuilt gearbox and new torque converter, which cost over 2/3rds of the current asking price! Conclusion:This is a superb clic sporting Grand Tourer, with excellent interior, having had plenty of money invested over the years. It draws admiring glances all the time, and is often a topic of conversation with people you meet when you park. It has oodles of charm, character and style.The colour is beautiful and shows off the flowing lines and finesse of the fabulous design. People literally stop in their tracks and look, as these wonderful cars are becoming a less common sight on our roads.  Contact:This car is being listed on behalf of a friend of mine who inherited the car after the current owner, his father, sadly ped away. He would love to keep the car, but a lack of space, a young family and work commitments mean he does not have the time to enjoy the car as he would like, so it is now being very reluctantly offered for sale. If you would like to arrange to view the car, you are most welcome to contact him, Justin on 07595 300017, or if you email me via eBay, I can p any messages on to him. This car is a genuine private sale, so the car is sold as seen with no warranty implied or given. Thank you for time in reading this comprehensive description and we welcome any enquiries and viewings.

  • 1999 Jaguar XK8 Convertible

    POA POA

    Here is a great opportunity to own a nice XK8 that has been pampered since new. It started its life in Florida, and has been a California car for the last half of its life, with no snow or ice to cause rust issues. It has an elegant color combination, with a beautiful burl walnut dash and trim. Comes complete with original books and extra keys. It has had a recent service, and is loaded with factory options: Air conditioning that blows cold, power steering, power brakes, power seats, power windows, power convertible top, factory AM/ FM cassette stereo with CD disc changer, and full factory instrumentation. The XK8 is a fabulous handling car with good power, and is very comfortable and sporty. The last owner purchased the car with approximately 55,000 miles and put about 10,000 miles on the car over the past 3 years. Several years ago, the engine was gone through, and the car received four new struts, new front/rear brakes, new battery, new tires were installed, and the two front seats were recovered with Jaguar upholstery. More recently, the car has been meticulously maintained by an independent Jaguar Repair shop locally, where they just went through the entire car including: filt
