441kW Jaguar XE SV Project 8 revealed

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Unleashes

The XE SV Project 8 auto will appear at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on the 30th of June, 2017, a mere two days after its motionless reveal. A camouflaged auto has been lapping the Nürburgring and now, I assume, Jaguar would like to start the bidding. With the release of the new XE SV Project 8, the performance and the aerodynamics of the vehicle will be taken to a new high level. What we do know is that the auto will be limited to 300 units worldwide with all the new vehicles being hand-assembled at SVO's technical centre in Coventry.

The teaser shots reveal a much wider track than in the regular XE, especially at the rear. I'm a little surprised they went with the XE for this one, but I'm also excited to see just how insane they can make it.

Performance specs aren't known yet - we'll find out more on the 28th June - but we can confirm that Project 8 features all-wheel drive like the F-Type SVR.

"The time is right for SVO to produce the most extreme performance road vehicle in the history of Jaguar", said John Edwards, managing director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.

Jaguar will reveal the Project 8 in full on June 8. However, here it has been tuned for 592bhp - an increase of 25bhp - making it the most powerful Jaguar to ever hit the road. The public will get its chance to see it in the metal for the first time at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. Described as "the most extreme performance Jaguar ever" this wild XE is called the SV Project 8. "The price for such an extreme performance sports auto available in strictly limited numbers will reflect that". Not only is 441 kW more than you get from the F-Type SVO or Project 7, it's more than the unloved XJ220 produced when Jag set its sights on creating the world's fastest vehicle. Motorists will eventually be able to buy a V8-run XE Project 8, but production will be limited to just 300 examples.
