I have owned my beautiful XK8 Convertible for just over 3 years. I'm only selling because my wife has finally convinced me that the boys are too big now to sit in the back now !

The car runs very well and is an awesome ride.  I only commute 2.5 miles everyday and its always been garaged.

Here is a list of the work I have had done to it:

March 2011, 79291 miles.  NJ State Inspection; front brake pads, engine serviced.
June 2011                        Replaced Battery 
Dec 2011, 82217 miles      4 New Tires fitted, engine serviced. Replaced Negative cable for Battery
Oct 2012, 84306 miles      New brake pads front/back, Coolant level sensor, engine serviced
Mar 2013, 85449 miles      Spark plug seal, left and right valve cover gaskets and seals. NJ State Inspection

As above I have mentioned there are a few marks, worst being the small scrape on the right rear quarter and the rear fender. Please see photographs.  Also the electric roof switch (works fine) has broken from its mount, so I leave the switch poking out a bit, looks like it could be glued in place.

There are two keys and remotes (which need new battery's). Original Jaguar Handbook and info in binder that has its own slot in the glove compartment.

These is a SONY CD player that will play and charge IPOD.   A Sirius Satellite Radio.   

Please email any questions.

Jaguar planning two bodystyles for next XJ

Wed, 17 Apr 2013 19:14:00 EST

As we alluded to in today's F-Type first drive, Jaguar hasn't been selling its wares in China for very long, and as a result, buyers there usually don't have the same appreciation for the brand's history. So you might reasonably think that the company's recent radical styling shift (kicked off by the 2008 XF) wouldn't be as jarring to the nation's buying populace since they really didn't have the automaker's more traditionally styled models from years past to compare them against.
Yet while Jaguar and its sister marque, Land Rover, continue to pick up steam in China's developing market, that apparently isn't necessarily the case. Local buyers there tend to have more conservative tastes when it comes to styling, preferring more upright dimensions, big back seats and larger quantities of traditional luxury materials (think: chrome and wood) than other markets currently find desirable. Thus, the very bold current-generation XJ sedan may be leaving some sales on the table.
According to Edmunds, Jag doesn't want to risk that, and as such, it is preparing two bodystyles for the next-generation XJ - one with the rakish coupe-like styling of the current model, and a more "old-school" three-box sedan designed to appeal to a wider swath of Chinese buyers.

2016 Jaguar XE pounces on the Parisian port

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 13:00:00 EST

It's been about five years since Jaguar discontinued the misguided X-Type and exited the compact luxury sedan market, but today marks the British automaker's re-entry into the segment with the public debut of the all-new XE.
Pitted against the likes of the BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the new Jaguar XE is based on an all-new aluminum architecture that will underpin many new felines to follow, and packs a new family of four-cylinder engines. That is, aside from the range-topping XE S pictured above, with the super-six borrowed from the F-Type.
Conservatively styled but elegant and uniquely Jaguar, the XE isn't set to arrive Stateside until 2016. So unless you're planning a trip overseas (with a stop at a Jaguar showroom on the itinerary), our gallery of live shots from the floor of the Paris Motor Show here at the Porte de Versailles may be the best look you'll be getting at Coventry's latest for the next couple of years.

Jaguar XJ220 hooned remotely by a kid

Sat, 31 Aug 2013 12:57:00 EST

The Tax the Rich crew has a knack for indulging in automotive fantasies and capturing it all on video, such as a tug-of-war battle between two Ferrari F50s, drifting a Ferrari Enzo on gravel roads and even powersliding a Rolls-Royce Phantom on a field of wet grass. This latest video features a Jaguar XJ220 and a kid with an iPad, who somehow is able to control the old supercar with the Apple product.
No, there's no app for that (yet), and we lied - the boy isn't actually controlling the car - but it sure is nice to see the XJ220 in all its turbocharged, six-cylinder glory doing donuts and sliding across a grassy field. It jolts us to see the old Jaguar - capable of 217 miles per hour and once described by Jeremy Clarkson as having no brakes and massive turbo lag - thrown about like a rally car, but then we never imagined anybody would abuse a Rolls-Royce like that either. We'll continue to leave the high-stakes antics to Tax the Rich - we're just glad somebody had the guts to behave so badly in such a valuable machine. What else were they made for?
Be sure to check out the video below, if you have a pulse.
