Slinky, sultry and dressed in red, this 2008 Jaguar XK Convertible makes a lot of compelling arguments about why it should go home with you.
Made in January 2008 in Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich, Birmingham, England factory, this cat is all dolled up in Salsa (code CHA). The paint and trim look great overall. The trunk is very tidy. The tan, power-folding, cloth top looks great and has a rear glass window with defroster. It takes just 18 seconds for the top to come up or go down. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy and the integrated, body-colored bumpers with foglights up front fit tightly to the body.
This lithe cat rolls on Bridgestone Potenza radials, size 245/40R19 in front and 275/35R19 in back. Each tire is mounted to a factory chrome, five-spoke alloy wheel. The wheels are in excellent shape, while the tires are in very good shape.
Under the forward-hinged hood is a 4.2L DOHC 32-valve V-8 engine (code AJ34) with variable valve timing, Bosch direct fuel injection 10.5:1 compression ratio and breathing via dual exhausts. Backing up this motor is a ZF six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters (code 6HP626) and a 3.31:1 rear end. Driver convenience features are plentiful – Dual zone automatic climate control, power rack-and-pinion steering, power, four-wheel disc brakes, cruise control, power windows, power locks, power sideview mirrors, power front seats with memory, factory navigation, keyless entry, pushbutton start/stop and an electronic parking brake.
Safety equipment includes dual front airbags, side airbags, anti-lock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution, traction control, emergency brake assist and anti-slip regulation (ASR).
Inside, you can wallow in the luxurious ambience of the car’s Caramel leather interior (code SEP). The front buckets and rear demi-buckets are all in very good overall shape and upholstered in Connolly leather. Beneath, there is a matching Wilton wool carpet. A three-spoke steering wheel frames the gauge binnacle. The inner door panels and dash are all in very good order. The center console and shift lever look great. The shifter has Jaguar’s Sequential Shift and J-gate gear selector. A factory infotainment system completes the interior.
The X150's design was completed in 2002 and was previewed by Advanced Lightweight Coupé (ALC) which was first seen at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The designer, Ian Callum, was also responsible for the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish grand tourers. The X150's grille is inspired by that of the 1961 E-Type.
Introduced in the market in 2006, the X150 has a bonded and riveted aluminum monocoque chassis shared with the XJ and uses an all-aluminum construction. The X150 was the second Jaguar automobile assembled at the newly acquired Castle Bromwich plant alongside the XJ saloon. The X150, as compared to the X100 is 2.4 inches wider and 6.4 inches longer. It is also 200 pounds lighter than the X100 due to its aluminum construction resulting in performance and fuel consumption improvements.
The 4.2-litre V-8 engine was carried over from its predecessor and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission manufactured by ZF Friedrichshafen. A notable feature on the interior was steering column mounted shift paddles for easier gear changes.
