Jaguar XJS/XK8/XKR 1976-2006 - 2018 Market Review
Jaguar XK8 coupe

Fifty seven years after unveiling its amazing E Type, Jaguar has yet to develop a more memorable sports model.

Plenty of XJS Coupes survive, especially the 1980s-built HE, yet values only occasionally reach $20,000 and rust is steadily killing off neglected examples.

Very scarce four-speed manual cars can be worth double the price of an auto in similar condition, XJS convertibles are the one bright point in an otherwise staid market but only the best of these will make $50K.

V8 XK8s and supercharger XKRs don’t look 20 years old and offer value against considerably more expensive Italian coupes and convertibles.

XJS Coupe 1976-88 $14,040 [24]

XJS Cabrio. $30,315 [8]

XJS Conv. $48,165 [6]

XK8 Coupe/Conv. $31,360 [13]

XKR 1997-04 $43,745 [6]
