An outstanding 2003 Jaguar XK8 4.2 Convertible with just 75,000 miles and boasting a exquisite colour combination of Quartz grey metallic with ivory leather interior and a black soft top.
2003 saw the last incarnation of the classic Jaguar XK8, transformed with the introduction of a new 4.2 Litre V8, not just larger than it’s 4.0 predecessor but also heavily modified. Power was up, now 300hp. The 5 speed automatic transmission was replaced by a new 6 speed ZF providing closer ratios with the same silky smooth shifting. Jaguar thankfully kept its trademark J-Gate, which was slightly improved. This provides semi manual control of 2nd thru 6th gear.
Top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph and 60 mph is reached in 6.1 seconds. Electronics were also been modified and enhanced including revised dynamic stability and traction control, revised CATS ( Computer Active Technology Suspension ), emergency brake assist, adaptive cruise control and more.
Inside the car, the dash and console remained unchanged except for new 12 way power seats and a new sporty leather shift knob. The unique and elegant wide veneer dash is retained with deeply sunken primary instruments. Outside, with such an elegant design there was very little to improve and the only differences was Xenon headlights, badging and new wheels.
The original sales invoice from Stratstone Jaguar London show the following options were selected when ordered new, Sports performance seats, mirror pack, heated screen wiper pack, memory pack, heated front seats, interior compass, reverse parking aid, Apollo 19″ alloy wheels, cup holder and Ivory leather bringing the total invoice to £52,786.
