June 11, 2019driversclub
Acclaimed automotive manufacturer Jaguar has announced the release of a special new limited edition model – the XE SV Project 8.
It aims to offer race-track performance but with all the safety features and requirements to be fully road legal.
Beautiful on the outside and in
The new XE SV Project 8 will deliver a 600PS road-focused Touring specification, powered by Jaguar’s 5.0-litre Supercharged V8.
It will be capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds and will have a limited top speed of 186 mph.
Outside, the model looks immensely powerful and is sure to set tongues wagging whenever it’s spotted on the open road.
Engineering director at Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations Jamal Hameedi stated: “Project 8 has received outstanding critical acclaim since its launch.
“Touring specification extends the appeal of Project 8 to performance car enthusiasts and collectors who prefer a more discreet appearance, without compromising its driver-focused on-road dynamics.”
Overall, just 15 four-seat models are to be created for the global market, meaning the Touring specification XE SV Project 8 derivative will be as rare – and desirable – as they come.
Jess Wort, marketing manager at Drivers Club News, comments: “Jaguar has done it again in creating a stunningly beautiful and powerful special edition model that will set pulses racing for all car lovers.”
