Jaguar XK8 Convertible rivals

Written by Parkers on

The convertible version of the XK8 is a beautiful machine with the electrically-powered hood either up or down. It’s been about since 1996, but like all good Jags is timelessly elegant. It’s been refreshed over the years to keep it on course dynamically and if you need to be in Saint Tropez in time for cocktails then it’s a fine way to get there. With the roof down you can better hear the V8 doing its thing.

An all-new car was launched in 2006.
