  • 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).

Google Launches App To For Mobile Phone Users In Emerging Markets
Caesar Sengupta, VP of Next Billion Users , Google , in a blog said, "Mobile data is expensive for many people around the world". Google tested Datally in the Philippines for most of 2017, and the insights from the product tests there shaped the final app.


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.
