Jaguar has worked up what it calls the “most extreme performance road cars in the history of Jaguar,” the XE SV Project 8. It begins with a normal Jaguar XE, however its heart has been replaced with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that will produce around 600 horsepower, which will visit to all 4 wheels.
The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 will be the 2nd automobile in the automaker’s Collectors’ Edition, which likewise consists of the F-Type Project 7 from 2014. Like the F-Type, the XE SV Project 8 will have a restricted run. Jaguar will only construct 300 examples for the whole world, all which will be hand developed at Jaguar’s center in Coventry, England.
Jaguar will provide more information (and a car that isn’t covered in camouflage vinyl) at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 30. In the meantime, we can guess it’s not simply your typical XE with a giant motor under the hood. The front bumper loads more aggressive aerodynamics, and there’s a honkin’ wing out back to keep the vehicle from taking off.
The Jaguar XE is a compact executive sedan developed to contend against models such as BMW 3 Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4. It sports a number of engine alternatives, consisting of a 2.0-liter gas I4, a 3.0-liter supercharged gas V6 and a 2.0-liter diesel I4.
