In 1996, the Jaguar XJS was finally discontinued after nearly two decades and replaced by the XK8, internally named X100, which was available in coupe and convertible shape. Design came from Geoff Lawson, who readopted some styling cues, such as the oval radiator grille, from the E-type. The interior looked classic owing to its large, flat walnut burl dashboard, compensating for the parts taken from Ford shelves. Instead of the inline-6 and V12 engines of its predecessors, the new grand tourer used a 4.0 litre V8 engine which had a power output of 216 kW (294 hp). In 1998, a supercharged variant was added, named XKR, offering 276 kW (375 hp). All cars came with 5-speed automatic transmission, as a manual gearbox was no longer on offer. A facelift in 2002 brought a power upgrade: The engine size grew to 4.2 litres of capacity and power was now rated at 219 kW (298 hp) in the XK8 and 291 kW (396 hp) in the XKR. A new 6-speed automatic transmission by ZF became standard. The X100 was a success for Jaguar, and sales figures total at 90,064 units over the course of 10 years. Interestingly, convertibles outnumber coupes two to one.
