The ‘modern’ alternative to an E Type, this certainly has the looks. The XK8 is a spirited drive and possesses a high degree of luxury and comfort. This Carnival Red example with Cream Hide and extra-cost ‘classic’ veneers is in lovely order with an impressive maintenance record including recent service. Thoroughly rust-proofed for the last owner about 6 years ago to ensure its preservation, the car drives as well as it looks. Premium brand tyres and reconditioned wheels with new badges set the car off nicely. With 64,000 miles covered from new and excellent history including recent service, the car offers great value.
