The Jaguar XK8 is a grand tourer convertible of the Jaguar XK X100 generation. Production was launched in 1999 and ceased in 2006. The name XK8 is a reference to the engine of the car.

The XK8 was the entry level model of the XK series, whilst the XKR was the top-range model. Both the Aston Martin DB7 and the XK8 are based on the Jaguar XJS.

Need for Speed III: Hot PursuitEdit

The Jaguar XK8 can only be driven in the PC release of Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit. The XK8 is given a class C rating in the game.

Compared to the Aston Martin DB7 and Mercedes-Benz SL 600, the XK8 has a worse acceleration and top speed. The lack of power is compensated by a controllable and precise steering.
