The Project 8 Jaguar has been put through its paces by the SVO test crew at the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany. And now it’s ready for you.
The Jaguar Project 8 features a highly tuned version of Jaguar Land Rover’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8. Project 8, says JLR, will become the second Collectors’ Edition vehicle from SVO, following the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 in 2014. No more than 300 cars, all hand-assembled at SVO’s Technical Centre in Coventry, will be created for sale worldwide.
John Edwards, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations said:
“The time is right for SVO to produce the most extreme performance road car in the history of Jaguar. The SVO team is possessed by the spirit of performance and committed to creating the most thrilling driving experience imaginable.
“Our clients worldwide were thrilled by the F-TYPE Project 7. The new XE SV Project 8 takes aerodynamics and performance engineering to another level – it is conceived for enthusiasts and the most discerning collectors. The price for such an extreme performance sports car available in strictly limited numbers will reflect that.”
Full specification details for Jaguar XE SV Project 8 will be revealed at www.Jaguar.com on 28 June 2017, ahead of its world dynamic debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex in the UK on 30 June.
