Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) is an essential niche product advancement group, a toy shop producing batch-built and one-off performance and high-end automobiles for automotive perfectionists who require unique experiences. Building of their devoted center has just recently been completed, housing numerous hundred workers.

This blue vehicle was presented at Laguna Seca in U.S. spec. Considering its incredible performance and its highly developed engineering, I guess Jaguar might sell 500 or 600 editions, but they have topped production at 300, which need to guarantee a strong growth in value over the coming years.
Jaguar Project 8 is Jaguar Land Rover SVO’s the majority of enthusiastic automobile to this day, an unusual creature with nearly 75 percent of parts developed specifically for the automobile.

Maybe most importantly for a vehicle that will retail for $187,500, Project 8’s production run is so minimal– they will develop no more than 300 editions– this monster needs to climb up in value over time. If the automobile has the sort of brainwave steering and mag-lev chassis composure Jaguar has been accomplishing in its most recent vehicles, many collectors and high-end vehicle purchasers who have ignored Jaguar will change their minds.
Project 8 has a 592-horsepower supercharged V8, and a leading speed of 200 mph. The vehicle is drastically evolved and integrated in a specific niche assembly facility, similar way things run at Porsche’s Motorsport toy store. The vehicles move through a series of work stations. A lot of elements are changed on the car to quickly build it on a mainstream assembly line.
