This vehicle is located in our San Carlos California Showroom (650) 326-1000.

A convertible Jaguar at an affordable price and with low miles is a rare combination! This 1998 Jaguar XK8 convertible has only seen 51,000 miles and has just two previous owners. Painted Anthractie Metallic over a contrasting cashmere interior this XK8 features a desirable color combination and comes with an exterior- matching black soft top. Under the bonnet sits a 4.0L 32 valve DOHC V8 producing 290 horsepower and 290 foot pounds of torque through a five speed automatic transmission. The leather interior is in very good condition and the wood veers also show nearly no wear. Every part of the interior shows well, besides some small scuffing on the center arm rest, and even all of the power features in good working order. Recently serviced at 45,000 miles in 2009 and having had all of its rubber cooling lines replaced this Jaguar is ready to be enjoyed with the top down in the upcoming Spring and Summer seasons.

We strongly encourage any and all buyers who are unable to view the vehicle in-person to perform a Pre-Purchase Inspection (by an independent party of their choosing) prior to the purchase.
