Performance exhausts for the previous-generation Jaguar XK8 and XKR's
Following on from the success of our recently launched New Jaguar XKR Supercharged cat-back system, Milltek Sport, again in conjunction with Jaguar specialist Paramount Performance, have developed performance systems for the previous-model Jaguar XK8 and XKR. The new cat-back system has been designed to fit the 1996-2000 4.0 and 2000-2006 4.2 models and both coupe and convertible body types. There is also a choice of resonated (containing a centre silencer making it quieter) or non-resonated (no centre silencer making it slightly louder).

Paul Busby of Paramount Performance commented:

"We have fitted a number of different systems over the years, what makes the Milltek really stand out is the choice in sound level, and the absence of resonance, these big V8's can produce quite a drone which can make it quite unpleasant inside the car at any speed, but the way this system has been developed means all drone and resonance has been eliminated, making a real pleasure to drive."
Customer feedback has been extremely positive too, one customer with the louder of the two systems said:
"Milltek have clearly taken the time and effort to properly balance and tune the system, to give the best possible sound and performance! The build quality and the overall fit of the system is still amazing and really looks the part!"
Another customer remarked:
"The sound at idle is a very deep, quality sound (similar to an Aston Martin) and under load the car really starts to growl and roar. However, as and when you back off the throttle, or when cruising at a regular speed the sound level decreases, which makes it 'fun' when you want it to be, but also extremely 'civilised' and easy to live with when cruising on the motorway or on a longer journey.

Best of all there is ABSOLUTELY NO DRONING OR RESONANCE! Just a great V8 soundtrack!"

As with all Milltek exhausts, the exhaust system is manufactured in the UK entirely from stainless steel, which doesn't rust like some systems can. This exhaust increases power, sharpens the throttle response, improves driveability throughout the entire rev range, and releases an awesome sound – without producing the excessive volume that affects many other systems.
