Default Jaguar XE SV "Project 8" - The most powerful road-legal Jaguar in history!

Did a simple Google search about the Jaguar XE after recently driving it at the Jaguar event in Gurgaon and look what I found.


The Project 8 XE SV

Jaguar has announced the creation of the "Project 8" after the single seater "Project 7" that was based on the F-Type.

Quote:
The spirit of extreme performance – at SVO our designers and engineers are possessed by it. Jaguar SVO has announced plans to launch the most powerful, agile and extreme performance Jaguar ever: the new XE SV Project 8. With 600PS from a 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 engine, Project 8 is the most powerful road legal Jaguar in history. Production will be strictly limited to 300 cars worldwide. Every one hand-assembled at the SVO Technical Centre in Coventry. XE SV Project 8 will be revealed on June 28th.


Quote:
Watch as a prototype version of the 600PS 5.0-litre V8 sports saloon is unleashed for testing at the gruelling Nürburgring Nordschleife track. Following the successful launch of Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 in 2014, Project 8 will become the second Collectors’ Edition vehicle to be designed and engineered by SVO.
I am quite exited to see Jaguar slay the competition as the XE SV would directly compete with the BMW M3/M4, Mercedes C63 and the Audi RS5 and has more power than any of them. But saddened by the fact that Jaguar is making it in very limited numbers (300) instead of making it part of their regular lineup.

Particularly love the 'Track-Pack' as it has no rear seats & a roll cage

With a 200K price tag, and the limited numbers, I doubt its a real threat to any of them!

The way this thing sounds, damn. Best sounding car IMHO in its price range. A pity that they didn't make more of them and RHD variant or else I wouldn't have been surprised if this found some buyers here in India as well
