1997 Jaguar XK8 Coupe

VIN SAJGX5748VC001114

 

This beautiful car was owned by an enthusiast, who made many improvements and modifications, making this XK8 one of a kind. There's not another like it.  It has been immaculately cared for, garaged, and indeed improved from original.

Below is a list of all non-stock modifications made to the car between June 2011 and November 2018.  These are also included, with dates, in a complete maintenance records file that can be made available to prospective buyers, and will be given to the car's next owner.

You are welcome to contact the car's owner directly with questions.  Simply send a message to Roadtrips Carolina through this website, and ask for the owner's email address and mobile number.  He'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

 

Engine, Exhaust and Instrumentation 

    • - Stock, plastic secondary timing chain tensioners replaced with modern, metal units.
    • - Stock 400-cell catalytic converters replaced with high-flow, 200-cell units from Nameless Performance. Will pass California emissions.
    • - Stock exhaust system replaced with stainless steel system from Mina Gallery. The V8 burble is back! Car sounds great.
    • - Stock (dummy) water temperature gauge modified to provide real-time information on water temp (from JagWrangler).
    • - Stock (dummy) oil pressure gauge modified to provide real-time information on oil pressure (from Jag Wrangler).
    • - Vehicle-specific tube and dipstick added to transmission unit. Accessed through engine bay.

 

Interior

    • - Leather on both front seats replaced, in stock color.
    • - Interior trim fabric (stock grey) replaced with camel alcantara.
    • - Head unit replaced with Bluetooth-enabled, modern Pioneer unit. Two USB power and MP3 connection ports in center console.

 

Suspension 

    • - Front and rear springs replaced with 1” lowered springs from Mina Gallery.
    • - Front and rear struts replaced with Bilstein units.
    • - Stock wheels replaced with later “Double-5” wheels. Used the rear size from the later XKR on all four corners, for easy tire rotation.  Everything fits nicely, with no rubbing at all.

 

 Exterior

 The following work was completed during a full respray project.  The final color is stock…Sherwood Green. 

    • - Side sills from later model coupe installed. Filled in at top for seamless look.
    • - Small lip spoiler added to rear boot lid. Filled in for seamless look.
    • - Rear bumper from later car installed. Does a better job of hiding the undercarriage from the rear.
    • - Marker lights removed and filled in at right and left front, sides, and rear.
    • - Radio antenna removed and in rear right wing filled in.
    • - Victory-edition smoked tail light assemblies installed.
    • - Front scoop – stock “bucktooth” plastic pieces removed. Holes in bumper bar filled, then bumper bar painted in trim color and clear-coated.  Really cleans up the front scoop area.
