My Gulf blue Jaguar XK8

Postby Roymattblack » Sat Feb 14, 2015 11:22 pm

I have to admit to being a Jaguar fan.

I've had my XK8 for 3 years, and just recently bought my wife an Emerald fire green 2010 Jaguar XF premium with all the goodies.

I contemplated swapping in my XK for a Chiltern green Aston DB7 from Chiltern Aston, but decided to keep the Jag.
Instead, I had new black Raceline rims fitted, brakes lacquered in orange, and a full body wrap in the Gulf colours. It was metallic Anthracite black with silver 'flute' rims before.
Also had a 4-pipe Adamesh stainless sports exhaust fitted.
Now, the V8 really burbles like a V8!
A lot of you might say 'eek' !!! but I love it to bits and BOY - does it turn heads!!!
I've had nothing but compliments and have been asked a few times if it road-legal, being a race car! (Which it isn't)
The car came to me with a full lifetime warranty,all the Jaguar extras as the car was their own brochure car, and it is serviced 'by the book' regularly, and it truly cosseted.

Hope you like...

Roy.
