Some of the coupes developed by Jaguar have achieved a legendary status in the auto industry. During the 1960s, the Jaguar E-Type coupe's styling and performance generated universal acclaim. With modern sport and personal luxury coupes, the British luxury car maker has drawn on the E-Type as a styling inspiration. After years of focus on four passenger grand tourer machines under the XJS and XK branding, Jaguar rebooted their sport coupe heritage with the F-Type. A two-seat performance car built for driving agility, a coupe version of the Jaguar F-Type came shortly after the release of the roadster model. Offered with rear-wheel drive as well as all-wheel drive versions, the sports car boasts power from supercharged V-6 and V-8 powerplants.
With styling that is both exotic and elegant, the 2001 Jaguar XK8 roars into this model year available as a coupe or convertible with a choice between a naturally-aspirated V8 or one fitted with a supercharger.
