2001 Jaguar XK8

2001 Jaguar XK8


Engine: 4.0L V8 F DOHC 32V
Transmission: 5 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 55,627 ( actual )

When Ford took over Jaguar, all kinds of good things started to happen, including this 2001 XK8 coupe. It definitely has the Jaguar look, a combination of ferocity and elegance, and with only 55,627 original miles, this one has been well-kept and treated as something special for all of its life. The original luscious red paint has a great shine and looks as great as it does when it was new. The medium red suits the Jag perfectly, flashy enough to get some attention but not in an undignified way, which isn't the Jaguar's mission. Instead, it has a glow that looks luxurious, and combined with the sinuous curves of the XK8's sheetmetal, few people will guess that this car is 17 years old. An upgraded mesh grille borrowed from the XKR makes it look a bit more aggressive. The tan-colored leather seats are pure Jaguar elegance, delivered in a way that only the British seem to have mastered. They're all-day comfortable yet supportive enough for spirited driving, and thanks to quality materials, they show only modest wear that's totally in line with the car's age and mileage. Full instrumentation and every luxury feature you can imagine are included: automatic climate control, a power tilt steering wheel, power windows and locks, cruise control, and a great-sounding AM/FM/cassette/CD stereo, and it all still works! There's a back seat area that looks unused, and it's probably the most beautifully upholstered package shelf in history. Jaguar's 4.0 liter V8 was one of the first fruits of the Ford-Jaguar partnership, but it shares no components with any Ford engines. It purrs with buttery smoothness yet rips to redline when you plant your foot, and with a flat torque curve, it makes even this heavy cruiser feel light on its feet. These engines aren't known for being finicky, so it remains a superb driver that's entertaining from behind the wheel. A 5-speed automatic transmission and a supple independent suspension are willing dance partners no matter what you're doing, and the brakes are powerful enough to keep this heavy cruiser in check.You can view this 2001 Jaguar XK8 in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com.
