1999 Jaguar XK8 (X100)

Unusual in Phoenix red with cream leather and walnut; last owner since 2011 with just three previous keepers and little recent use

Supplied new in September 1999 , on a V-plate registration by Reg Vardy Jaguar of Aberdeen this XK8 (X100 series) would have been, and still is a striking car finished in Phoenix Red with cream hide and Burr walnut trim sat on standard 18inch 7-spoke alloy wheels. The car has had just four owners, the current since May 2011 and it has covered a modest 101,498 miles in its 21 years. A letter from the vendor in the file informs us the car hasn’t seen much, if any use in the last 5 years and has since been treated to new discs, pads and calipers along side a stripped and refurbished handbrake. The car has also been serviced including a gearbox oil change although there is no documentary evidence a quick glance at the brakes suggests this to be the case but it would clearly benefit from some much needed road miles and use. In the history file we find the V5C, owners pack with manuals and service book which shows 11 stamps including PDI. The first 7 are by Jaguar main dealers the following 4 by independent garages with the last stamped service in June 2011 at 81,998 miles. There is one additional stamp for Jaguar’s anti-corrosion inspection record in April 2000 at 11,785 miles by supplying dealer Reg Vardy. In addition to the above we have 5 old MOT certificates and a current MOT valid until June 2021 with some minor advisories noted. Smart, very red and still very sleek, a good X100 series XK8 or XKR is still a great car to drive and enjoy so we would suggest snap one up whilst they remain affordable.
