The Jaguar XK8, famed for its role in Die Another Day, is Jaguar’s stab at a successor to the XJS. While undoubtedly a fine touring sports car, it lacks perhaps some of the charisma of the XJS. However, we believe that the car’s look and feel will contribute a lot to it becoming in 10 years or so a much sought-after classic Jaguar just as the XJS is right now.
Prices are currently very low and it could be a great investment opportunity for those looking for a future modern classic to invest in.
If you’re a current XK8 owner, we suggest you hold on to it, as prices are set to rise in the near to long term.
As classic Jaguar experts, we are famed for our knowledge of the XJS and similar marques; however, we also know a thing or two about the XK8, which is largely based on the XJS mechanicals.
We’ve seen an influx of the XJS’ successor coming to our workshop recently, often due to the dreaded rusting process. Yes, modern vehicles can be prone to rusting, too! It’s therefore of paramount importance that you get your vehicle checked out, and ensure it’s sufficiently rust-protected to keep it safe and strong.
KWE is able to look over your classic car, offering advice on protective and restorative actions, which help ensure the longevity of your vehicle, and contribute greatly to a rise in value.
At only 14 years’ young, this Jaguar XK8 is one of the more modern vehicles we’ve worked on in recent times, and it shows that you shouldn’t take your car’s age for granted.
The car had some serious rusting issues, both internal and external, which needed urgent attention. We have been able to put our expertise to good use, restoring the car to our favoured ‘better-than-new’ standard.
