1999 Jaguar XK8 Convertible
\"Grace, Space, Pace\" Jaguar\'s advertising slogan for many decades after it first appeared in the 1950s. Jaguar\'s iconic emblem and former hood ornament is known as The Leaper. The face-on chrome embossed emblem is known as The Grinner. Jaguar has won the 24 Hours of LeMans, the world\'s oldest sports car endurance race, seven times. The first time in 1951 and the last time in 1990. Regardless of all the facts, the most fascinating thing about Jaguars is driving one.
For consignment, a XK8 Jaguar Convertible. This car shows an incredible 30,428 miles, however they cannot be verified. It has been lovingly kept in a garage when not in use and due to our consignor moving to sunny Florida and a lack of room, we proudly offer you this car. Bathed in Topaz Metallic and has an excellent Connolly leather interior with abundant use of walnut burl accenting. Decidedly British, Wilton carpeting, and a sporty 4.0 Liter V8, this car uses some of the iconic Jag race car designs with shades of the XKE in its curved body lines and low profile.
With its rounded aerodynamic looks and a front oval grille that harkens back to the E-types, it now sports integrated head and taillights, and front bumper inserted running lights. Body panels are all straight and bathed in Topaz Metallic paint from the deep end of the pool and present with only a few very minor scuffs and scrapes. A black canvas convertible top moves up and down smoothly and presents as near perfect. Aluminum wheels emblazoned with the \"grinner\" in green are on all 4 corners wrapped in deeply treaded Kumho 245/50ZR17 blackwall rubber. Also on the sides is a green oval with the \"leaper\" badge.
Gorgeous charcoal black Connolly leather in fine condition with minor age wear to the driver\'s outer bolster adorns the interior seating consisting of front buckets and a very tight 2 plus 2 rear bench. Fronting these is a burl dash, which has plenty of knobs and dials including climate controls, an AM/FM/Cassette stereo, cruise control, power heated seats with 3 memory positions, power mirrors, power windows and power locks. A console mounted shift lever has the option to shift manually or just keep it in automatic and a sport mode with a push of a toggle switch. Clean black Wilton carpeting with rubber and carpeted mats for the floors and noted is the power convertible top is in good condition interior wise.
A 4.0 Liter, Electronic Fuel Injected V8 which puts out 290hp is connected to a 5-speed automatic transmission (ZF-5HP24). A 3.06 rear axle puts the power to the ground.
All underneath appears slightly used with just a bit of road dirt spattered about, very clean, no rust, and structurally secure. We note black primer sprayed over a few areas of the flooring that has developed surface rust, an excellent preventative measure. Standard dual exhaust is on, no leaks seen on the bottom end of the engine and transmission, and rockers are rust free and clean. Independent coil springs for all the suspension, and power disc brakes are inserted on all 4 corners.
An easy starter, and smooth idle with some warmup time prior to embarking for the test track. Here it handled it splendidly, with smooth seemingly unlimited acceleration, easy shifting, and bias free braking. I put the top down for my cruise and had a thoroughly enjoyable tool throughout the Classic Auto Mall countryside.
A good running, smooth shifting, clean used Jaguar XK8. An unverifiable 30,428 miles, but one look in and out tells us that the mileage is most likely accurate, is yours for the taking here at Classic Auto Mall. Put the top down and feel groovy baby! And you should, this is one cool cat.
