Jun 28.17 Mag Plus Jag: Powerful One-Two Punch
Jaguar’s XE SV Project 8, the fastest-accelerating factory Jaguar ever (standing start to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds--zero to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 200 mph/322 km/h), will feature
weight-reducing magnesium frames in all four seats in the brand’s four-passenger models. The 592-horsepowerhouse will be available in a two-seat configuration as well. The four-door XE will be built as four-seat models for North America.

This is the second Jaguar model to be fine-tuned at its Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division. The XE SV Project 8 will house a supercharged 5.0 liter/516 lb-ft of torque V8 engine and feature an all-wheel-drive system, adjustable dampers at all four corners, and carbon-ceramic brakes.

“SVO’s raison d’être is to produce halo vehicles that push the boundaries in terms of luxury, performance and all-terrain capability,” said John Edwards, director of Jaguar Land Rover SVO. “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,” he added.

Hand-built at Jaguar’s new technical center in Coventry, England, the XE SV will be limited to 300 global units and will make its public debut at the famed hill climb during the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Pricing starts at 149,995 British pounds.
