We are happy to continue our Modern Jaguar theme as part of our Customer Spotlight section this week. It is particularly pleasing to showcase a fine example of a rare coloured green metallic Jaguar XK8. For a 1996 model, the shape has not aged and certainly holds its own amongst the new crop of Jaguar talent.
Our customer recently acquired this Jaguar XK8 for a very low price tag. Like many of our trade customers, he is handy underneath a bonnet so is tinkering away at the few things that need doing.
A true gentleman, he offered to take it down the car wash before I photographed it but we always decline. We prefer to showcase the cars as they are used on a daily basis. You will see this from the MGB we will showcase a little later on.
This Jaguar XK8 sports a beautiful dashboard, but what we were most impressed with is the now retro top spec cassette deck. It really would be a shame to take that out, so next time you are passing we have a tape – MP3 converter for you – on the house of course!
