1998 Jaguar XK8
After an 18-year hiatus, BMW has revived the 8 Series name with the BMW Concept 8 Series. The automaker's new flagship model could help the manufacturer compete against Mercedes-Benz, which overtook BMW last year as the world's largest luxury automaker.
Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Classic Car Overview
The XK8 was launched in 1996 to replace the XJS with a design penned by then-Jaguar design director Geoff Lawson. It was available in two body styles - a three-door hatchback coup and a two-door convertible with both variations featuring 2+2 seating. The car was the first in the Jaguar line-up to use Jaguars newly developed 32-valve V8 engine - the AJ-V8 which had a displacement of 4.0-litre. The XK range received a mechanical update in 2002 with the engines in both the XK8 and XKR models being enlarged to 4.2-litres and gaining more power, the front headlamps were also updated by the addition of a clear lens. Further changes included new exterior colors and wheels along with different badging. The models were revised again in spring 2004 and notable changes included new wheel designs, bigger front and rear spoilers, and a redesigned grille.
