200-mph, 592-horsepower XE is Jaguar’s most powerful, agile and extreme performance road car ever produced.
Following the successful F-TYPE Project 7 of 2014, the XE SV Project 8, is Special vehicle Operations’ second Collector’s Edition. It is a hand-built four-door sedan with supercar performance – designed to thrill driving enthusiasts, with an extraordinary combination of explosive power, dynamic agility and all-wheel-drive traction. No more than 300 examples will be created for global sale, each to be assembled at the SVO Technical Center in Coventry, England.
“SVO’s raison d’être is to produce halo vehicles that push the boundaries in terms of luxury, performance and all-terrain capability. Project 8 is a great example of what happens when enthusiastic designers, engineers and manufacturing specialists are given the opportunity to create an extreme performance sports car without compromise,” said John Edwards, Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director. “Project 8 will be assembled by hand in the new SVO Technical Center, and we’re confident that our enthusiastic and demanding clients will love driving Project 8 as much we do!”
The Project 8 exclusively features the most powerful version of the Jaguar Land Rover 5.0-liter Supercharged V8 powertrain. The 592-horsepower engine, which has a Titanium Variable Active Exhaust, is complemented by a standard All Wheel Drive (AWD) system and motorsport-derived aerodynamics to deliver a 200-mph top speed and 0-60-mph in 3.3 seconds, making Project 8 the fastest accelerating Jaguar yet.
