- BRG with Barley interior, c.57,000 miles only, MoT to April 2018

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. Displaying just c.57,000 miles and described as being in "very good" condition, this cosseted example has formed part of a private collection and been enjoyed by just two previous owners. Finished in BRG with Barley interior, it was maintained by Yardley Garage for a decade and comes with spare keys, book pack, all old MoTs, tonneau cover and MoT to April 2018.
