Jaguar XK8 and XKR. By John Blundsen. Powered by a silky smooth 4.0-liter V8 engine, the XK8 and XKR have set new standards in performance, refinement and comfort. This colorful guide examines XK heritage through to the famous E-type and then traces Jaguar's return, after a foray into the GT market with the XJS, to the design and development of the cars which have been the company's flagships for the past four years. A special chapter is devoted to two exciting two-seater prototypes: the XK180 and the F-type Concept. Features production and sales history, technical specs, performance assessments, optional equipment, model ID features, design, and development. Paperback. 128 pages.
