Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Explained

Engineering fine-tuning on the new Jaguar XE SV Project 8 has almost finished, ahead of production starting in June. Since its public debut at last July’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, the fastest-ever four-door Jaguar has undergone numerous enhancements to ensure Project 8 is the fastest and most thrilling of all road-legal four-door sedans. Project 8 is a four-door car with genuine supercar performance. Top speed is 200mph and 0-60mph acceleration takes just 3.3 seconds*. It set a new four-door production car record around the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife last year – the ‘gold’ standard for all-round high performance. Its best lap of 7 min 21.23 sec was quicker than many supercars, and broke the old four-door record by more than 10 seconds. With Project 8 we set out to deliver a fast, fun and engaging car that encourages you to explore its performance. Our lap record at the Nürburgring proves we have achieved that, but now we believe we can go faster. We’re continually honing every functional aspect of the car, focusing on marginal gains to make it even quicker yet still accessible to drive. Mark Stanton Special Vehicle Operations Director
