The second generation of Jaguar XK was first seen as the Advanced Lightweight Coupe (ALC) at the Detroit Motor Show in 2005. It was the first Jaguar to be completely styled by Ian Callum and the ALC was, to all intents and purposes, the production-ready car officially announced at the Frankfurt Motor Show later that year.
On sale in 2006, the XK (X150) Coupe and Convertible followed the X350 XJ by using an aluminium bonded and riveted monocoque with aluminium body panels. There are only two welds in the entire car, one either side of the roof. This made the X150 90kg lighter than the previous steel-bodied X100 and it’s stiffer too, with the second generation Coupe and Convertible 50 per cent and 31 per cent more rigid than their predecessors respectively.
At launch, Jaguar retained the 300hp 4.2-litre V8 from the previous car, though there was also a new fuel injection system to help with emissions, plus variable valve timing and a twin air-intake system and a six-speed automatic gearbox.
This genuine low mileage example is particularly lovely to drive. The engine is smooth, very responsive and sounds awesome. The gear change is seamless. There are no warning lights on the dashboard after test driving. The tyres are all Premium Dunlop with good tread just another sign of how well this car has been maintained. There are no vibrations from the steering wheel or pulling to either side. This XK has recently been serviced and will be supplied with a fresh 12 months MOT. Any inspection or test drive welcome. A particularly lovely example.

The 20 inch alloys are in excellent condition with no ingrained dirt or curb damage to the outer edges however the rear drivers side wheel has a small chip in the paint but hardly shows.. The paintwork is excellent and consistent with the low mileage. The drivers mirror has a very small scratch. Under the bonnet is clean as are all the door shuts. The tail pipes shine and the hood is in excellent order with no damage or dirt. An beautiful low mileage example. Individual body panel and wheel pictures available on our website.
The interior, like the rest of this car, is beautiful. This car has never been smoked in or used to carry pets and there are no lingering smells. The leather seats are in excellent condition with no ingrained dirt, dis-coloration or scuffing. The carpets are all very clean with no heel damage or ingrained dirt or stains.
