Jaguar XE SV Project 8 – Specs & Details

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 0 600x383 at Jaguar XE SV Project 8   Specs & Details

Jaguar Land Rover’s special operations unit SVO released further details on their superb new creation, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8, ahead of the car’s dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This super saloon features a 600 horsepower engine, has a race car look to it, can top 200 mph, and makes 60 mph from zero in 3.3 seconds. 

But do not for a second think Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is a rival for the M5 or the E63. The Jag is a limited edition of just 300 units, each for a whopping £149,995. So it’s more an exercise, a way for SVO engineers to flex their muscles and show off their capabilities. And boy have they done that, fitting an XE which to be honest isn’t a very exciting proposition in its standard guise with a 600 PS 5.0-litre supercharged V8 and all-wheel-drive, not to mention a massive aero kit, to create the ultimate expression what this model can be.
