Restored 1998 Jaguar XK8 4.0 X100

Restored 1998 Jaguar XK8 4.0 X100

Restored XK8 How old does your car need to be for restoration? We ask the owner of an X100 why he comprehensively restored a car that is a mere 20 years old. Digging deep. When Nigel Paines bought his early XK8 it looked to be a good, clean example – but the shiny Alpine Green paint hid the many horrors that lurked beneath. Despite its potential value being nowhere near that of an E-type, Nigel has still treated his car to the same high level of restoration. Words Richard Bremner. Photography Antony Fraser.
