Jaguar XK
Jaguar’s grand-touring XK coupe and convertible have been in the lineup since they replaced the XJ-S in the 1997 model year. The original XK8 was powered by the first-ever V8 engine for Jaguar: a 290-horsepower 4.0-liter unit. The XKR joined the lineup for the 2000 model year, powered by a 370-horsepower supercharged 4.0-liter V8 — available in both coupe and convertible versions. The current generation of the XK debuted as a 2007 model with all-aluminum construction, powered by a choice of two V8 engines: a 300-horsepower 4.2 liter or a 420-horsepower supercharged 4.2 liter. A 385-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 and a 510-horsepower supercharged 5.0-liter V8s debuted for the 2010 model year. The newest models with 5.0-liter engines are still valued above $20,000, but there should be a good selection of low-mileage XKs with either the normally-aspirated or supercharged 4.2-liter V8s available.
