Profile

The Jaguar XK8, codename X100, succeeded the ageing XJ-S in 1997. The styling and name of the new car echoed the classic era of the E-Type (known as the XKE in America).

The supercharged XKR arrived in 1998 offering supercar performance from it's 370bhp XJR derived engine and advanced handling and ride thanks to it's computer controlled CATS suspension. Louvered air vents, bigger alloys, boot spoiler and a mesh grille distinguished the XKR from it's normally aspirated sibling, making it one of the most desirable GTs on the market.

From 2002, capacity was upped from the original 4.0 litre to 4.2 litre with 400bhp and a 6-speed box to help the XK compete with it's new rivals from Maserati and Mercedes.
