23 JAGUAR XK8
PRICE RANGE £4000-30,000
Launched in 1996, the XK8 is firmly cemented in the modern classic ethos, and it worked well as a successor to the XJS. The looks were (and are) just right – unmistakably a Jaguar, with nods towards the E-type, especially around the rear of the coupé.
These cars are still startlingly affordable, but as ever, it’s worth seeking out the best models before the tide of value rises begins to turn.
