If you own an XK8 or the current aluminium bodied XK, let us help you keep it on the road and get the very best out of your car.
The Modern XK Register does what it says on the tin and caters for JDC members who own the older, steel-bodied XK8 and XKR (X100) and the later, aluminium cars (X150) in coupé and convertible forms. Jaguar produced 91,406 X100s at the Browns Lane plant between 1996 and 2005, and 54,549 X150s at Castle Bromwich between 2005 and 2014. As these great Jaguar sports cars age, the main task of the Register is to help members keep their cars on the road at a reasonable cost. Chairman and news correspondent David Hague, an X100 owner himself, writes a monthly report in Jaguar Driver magazine where members can share their experiences in all aspects of modern XK ownership, from detailing and maintenance to obtaining sometimes difficult-to-source spare parts. The Register also maintains an active Facebook page.
At JDC National Day, you can expect to see more than 100 modern XKs lined up and the X100 is now old enough to be classified as a modern classic and eligible to be judged for entry to the JDC’s famous Champion of Champions contest at the NEC every November. Last year, David Fisher’s XK8 Coupé made JDC history as the first XK8 to win, underlining the Club’s commitment to modern Jaguars.
The JDC is in the process of setting up a separate Register for the F-Type but until it is in place, enquiries can be sent to David Hague.
