The Jaguar XK8 is a GT coupe released in 1996, also available in a convertible version, as well as an engine equipped with an Eaton compressor (XKR) which has a ZF gearbox.

The first generation of Jaguar XK8 shares its platform, partially derived from the Jaguar XJS, with the Aston Martin DB7. The original design is by Geoff Lawson, succeeded by Ian Callum, for the next two generations of Jaguar XK.

The feline silhouette of the XK, despite two major evolutions in 2002 and 2006, remains unchanged. Precious wood and  leather are very present, although some unpleasant plastics have appeared, and that there are versions favoring aluminum and carbon. Similarly, the convertible top is made of triple insulation fabric and not metal. The Jaguar XKR is the supercharged version of the XK8, produced from 1998.
