Jaguar introduced the XJS model in 1975, marking its move from sports cars to sporting grand tourers. By the time the XJS went out of production in 1996, it had evolved into a very sophisticated, well-built, two-door grand tourer. During its 21 year production lifespan, it was continually upgraded to meet the demands of the market and changing technologies. The car chosen to replace the XJS was the XK8, car coded within the factory as X-100.

Ford took over Jaguar in 1990 and at the time there was little in the pipe in the way of proposed new Jaguar models. The XJS was proving to be popular and sales were strong, but Ford knew that it was vital to launch new models in order to improve profitability and sales. The first products of Ford involvement with Jaguar were the replacements for the XJ40 (the X-300 saloons).

The XK8 utilized the existing floorpan of the XJS but significantly updated to meet the ever-increasing demands of the lucrative and prestigious sports car market. It was given an all-new body style and interior trim elements, along with new mechanical components. Under the hood was the 4.0-liter V8 engine. The exterior design featured retro styling cues from the older E-Type sports cars and the XJ220 'supercar'. For marketing purpose the car remained a 2+2 with a limited rear seating arrangement.

The V8 engine was mated to the latest electronically controlled GM 400 transmission that was in-turn mated to the Jaguar J-gate transmission control.

This particular example has the 4-liter, 290 horsepower V8 engine backed by an automatic transmission with overdrive. It has a power convertible top, many power options, and 37,741 actual miles on the odometer. It is finished in Sapphire Blue over Cream interior.
