Looks like Jaguar is tired of losing the super sedan game to Mercedes-Benz and BMW and they have come up with something to put the Germans in their place. It’s called the Jaguar XE SV Project 8, it’s a product of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), and with 600 PS it promises supercar-like performance.
The extremely angry Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is currently track testing at, as you would expect, Nurburgring and we have to say it does look pretty agile in this little teaser they have released. The car also sound dirty as befits a SVO-tuned Jaguar:

The most powerful road legal Jaguar in history, the production Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is not really a rival for the E63 and the M5 though, as it will be a limited edition ‘collector’s’ model like the Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7. They will be revealing more about the Project 8 closer to the car’s dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June.
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.”
