AutoHunter Spotlight: 2000 Jaguar XK8 Coupe

Coventry’s coupe returns to fine form

-

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 48,000-mile 2000 Jaguar XK8 coupe. It has been Arizona-owned since new and is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 paired with a ZF five-speed automatic transmission. Features include a mesh grille, chrome wheels, carbon fiber interior trim, traction control system, and more. Finished in gold over a light tan leather interior, this XK8 comes with a clean CARFAX report and clear title in the name of the seller’s LLC.

The Topaz Metallic (code SEC) body has been upgraded with a mesh grille insert from an XKR. Additional exterior features include automatic on/off headlights, fog lamps, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and dual stainless steel exhaust tips.

Chrome 18-inch seven-spoke wheels are wrapped in 245/45 (front) and 255/45 (rear) Kumho Solus TA71 Z-rated tires.

The cabin is appointed with Oatmeal (code AGD) leather interior with power-adjustable front bucket seats up front. Features include keyless remote entry, power windows and door locks, speed-sensitive power steering, leather- and wood-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, automatic climate control, carbon fiber dash overlay, and woodgrain shift knob.

Instrumentation includes a 170-mph speedometer, 7,500-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level and coolant temperature. The digital odometer reads 48,398 miles, which lines up with the CARFAX report.

The 4.0-liter V8 is rated at 290 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque. Service has been performed over the past decade at British Automotive Repair in Scottsdale. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a console-shifted ZF five-speed automatic transmission.

A traction control system was standard equipment for this model. The front brakes were replaced last year, with new sway bar links installed in 2021.

The auction for this 48,000-mile 2000 Jaguar XK8 coupe ends Thursday, February 15, 2024 at 11:45 a.m. (MST)

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.
