  • Jaguar XE SV Project 8 becomes the fastest saloon around the Nurburgring

They hope for the rest to sell out, soon after the news of it being the fastest four-door sedan. Under the hood is a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 belting out 591bhp.

In just 7 minutes and 21.23 seconds, The Jaguar Project 8 lapped the Nürburgring. "This astonishing Nurburgring Nordschleife record validates the success of such extensive changes".

SVO director Mark Stanton said: "The SVO design and engineering team's mission was to create the most track-focused road-legal Jaguar in history - not only the fastest, but also the most agile".

Its all-wheel drive ensures the lap itself is tidier than you might expect for a mightily powered Jag. Also, the aerodynamics has also been reworked to reduce the drag force as much as possible. To get a control over this aggressive performance, the Project 8 gets vast 400mm carbon ceramic discs with huge 6-piston calipers up front. The vehicle uses racing specifications-based bodywork to produce downforce. The lap time was achieved "with a prototype Project 8 prepared by SVO's engineers", and the auto featured the optional weight-saving two-seat Track Pack (which means it got rid of the rear seats, and the front ones were replaced by carbon-fiber racing units).

The position came available over the weekend when former coach Dan Mullen resigned and took the head job at Florida . It isn't official yet, but Joe Moorhead is reportedly going to be the new Mississippi State coach .


Only 300 examples of the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 will be made, all cars will be left hand drive - they needed to make it left hand drive to stuff in that big V8 - and in the United Kingdom it'll be priced from £149,995.

The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 will be available next year in the USA, and we'll get just 300 of them.

The Project 8 is Jaguar's most accelerative current model, with a 0-60mph time of 3.3sec beating the all-wheel-drive F-Type SVR by two-tenths. Customers can also spec the vehicle with two carbon fibre seats and four-point harnesses as part of the Track Pack. As far as its India launch is concerned, there is no word from Jaguar as of now.
