The sleek-looking Jaguar XK8 first broke cover at the 1996 Geneva Salon as a replacement for the ageing XJS. Designed in-house by Geoff Lawson, the newcomer (in common with the Aston Martin DB7) was based on a much modified XJS platform - the changes to which included the adoption of XJ40-type independent rear suspension. The standard version of the XK8 was powered by a 290bhp normally aspirated version of the company's AJ26 V8 engine, and for those requiring more performance Jaguar offered a supercharged version, the mighty XKR. Like the XK8, this 370bhp monster was available in closed or open guise and could hit 60mph in a whisker over five seconds and power quickly to the electronically limited top speed of 155mph.
This 1999 example was first registered in the UK on 11th March 1991 and is fitted with the Supercharged 3996cc engine mated to an automatic gearbox. With only 56,000 miles from new this low mileage example is finished in Red with black leather interior and black hood. “T994 CGD” is provided with an MOT until February 2021, a full UK V5C, service book and pack, and two keys and fobs. The XKR has been provided with a main dealer service and health check in 2020 and is supplied with a tonneau cover.
