1997 Jaguar XK8 (X100)

Super example showing just 49,271 miles in an attractive colour scheme and unmolested order - ideal investment

Supplied new in August 1997 by Dunham Jaguar of Luton to its first owner, Lombard North Central PLC this fine 4.0 X100 series coupe example is finished in Titanium grey Pearl with cream interior and has covered just 49,271 miles and appears to be in super order throughout, backed up by an impressive service history.

Looking resplendent in its gleaming grey coachwork, the car sits on its original 7-spoke fluted 18inch alloy wheels and is in wonderfully original, unmolested order throughout. Inside, we find almost unmarked cream leather interior with contrasting anthracite dashtop, carpets and door cards with cream inserts.

Furthermore, dark wood trim adorns the dash and centre console with lovely half-timbered steering wheel featuring cruise control, 5-speed automatic transmission with Sports mode, digital climate control with A/C, electric windows, mirrors and adjustable steering column along with its original radio cassette and boot mounted CD changer.

Within the ample history file, we find the V5C showing 6 former keepers to our vendor, the owner’s pack and service book with an impressive 18 service stamps including PDI, the most recent in May 2021 at 49,149 miles which should give peace of mind for the lucky new owner. In addition, the service book contains an additional stamp for first year inspection for corrosion record.

Further documentation on file includes 17 old MOT certificates further confirming the car’s low mileage, purchase receipt for our vendor dated April 2018 at 44,657 miles and a ream of service and maintenance invoices further evidencing the care taken over the car through the years. The current MOT is valid until February 2022 with no advisories.

A super example in a desirable colour combination with excellent service history and low mileage which should reward the lucky new owner with considerable enjoyment and useful investment value.
