The most powerful car to hit the roads from Jaguar is here!
The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is going to break all the records and benchmarks set so far and it will not only be a record smasher will also break the banks with its unbelievably high price tag.
After all, the automobile brand is not going to build it to appease the average buyer but rather for the high speed car enthusiasts and those who just won’t think twice about paying the cost. However, Jaguar didn’t talk about the cost of the model so far which will be discussed further during the Goodwood 2017 event. The limited edition model has been designed and constructed by the Special Operations division.
While the designers are not ready to remove the camouflage off the car, they have already created a promo video for this superfast car. It is still covered and doesn’t reveal the design aspects of the model. The official reveal will be in the month of June at the said event. The Project 8 by Jaguar is a continuation of the F Type Project 7 that the brand undertook earlier and this will further boost the performance of the model. The car has many milestone claims to it as it will be hand built by engineers and will be extremely limited in numbers. The construction will take place at the Coventry SVO technical spot and grabbing one of the 300 cars to be built will be no easy task.
Being a superfast model, it houses a very powerful 5.0-liter V8 engine which allows the Project 8 car to reach up to 592 horsepower which is approximately 25hp more than the earlier Project 7. The actual road testing can be done to confirm how well it performs in actual track conditions. The XE SV is also significantly faster than the XJ220 released way back in the 1990s as it beats their decades old record by a clean 56 horsepower.
Based on the images shown by Jaguar, it is possible to confirm that the bodywork and the chassis of the XE model has undergone some noticeable changes so that it can deliver the expected performance. The front grille of the car is now equipped with deep air intakes, mesh grilles and other changes that match on par with what is found in the Jaguar Land Rover model. The technical details, performance numbers and pricing will be revealed next month.
