Lot details

Registration No: MT08 OHS
Chassis No: SAJAC43P095B29338
MOT: September 2023

  • 46,500 miles and just 3 former keepers from new
  • Offered with owners wallet, handbooks and stamped service book
  • Subject to recent attention to A/C system and last serviced in 2020
  • Collection of invoices and old MOT certificates

Introduced at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show, the second-generation Jaguar XK range (codenamed X150) was styled by Ian Callum. Deliberately evoking the E-Type via its oval grille, speeding teardrop glasshouse and muscular haunches, the newcomer featured bonded/riveted aluminium construction, all-round independent suspension, power steering and four-wheel disc brakes. Powered by either a 4.2-litre V8 or 5.0-litre engine, both in supercharged or non-supercharged form, the standard-fit six-speed automatic transmission could either be left to its own devices or made to swap cogs by the steering wheel-mounted paddle shifts. A rival to the Porsche 911 (997) and Mercedes-Benz SL (R230), the Jaguar (X150) XK / XKR remained in production until 2014 by which time a mere 54,000 had been sold (compared to 212,704 Porsche 997s and 169,443 Mercedes-Benz R230s).

Presenting in a Indigo Blue Metallic exterior paint, matched to a Cream leather interior, the Coupe has the 4.2 V8 engine. The present owner has had the car for five years and is a member of the JEC. Among the work carried out in the upkeep of the XK, services and repairs have been carried out by Jagutek. At the last service at 44,865 miles, the front suspension arms and bushes were replaced, along with the air conditioning compressor and a wheel geometry check. Additionally, in 2018, the car benefitted from a new air conditioning condenser and cooling fans. New front tyres were fitted to the optional Senta alloys in August 2022 and the XK is fitted with parking sensors and sat nav.

Having now covered just 46,500 miles, and with just 3 former keepers from new, the XK was last serviced in 2020, with refreshed gearbox oil in 2018. Its former keepers have demonstrably maintained the car and the current vendor has cleaned and painted the front/rear subframes with Hammerite, and Waxoyled inside all of the box sections.

'MT08 OHS' is accompanied by its original owner's wallet, with the handbook and stamped service book along with a collection of old MOTs and invoices. There is also a document in regard to details of what, when and where servicing and maintenance has been carried out. The next MOT is due in September 2023.
