Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) has announced it is to unveil the ‘most powerful, agile and extreme performance’ Jaguar built to date in the new XE SV Project 8.
The prototype version of the 600PS Jaguar sports sedan offering supercar performance has now undertaken its debut test at the gruelling Nürburgring Nordschleife, adorned with an exclusive camouflage created by SVO Design. The car is equipped with the most powerful version of Jaguar Land Rover’s five-litre supercharged V8, and is set to become the second Collectors’ Edition vehicle from SVO, following the successful launch of 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.
“The time is right for SVO to produce the most extreme performance road car in the history of Jaguar,” explained John Edwards, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations. “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.”
