The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is the most powerful production car the company has ever built, thanks to a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine that generates 600-horsepower, mated to an eight-speed Quickshift transmission. All this power equates to a zippy 0-60 mph time of 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. On the exterior, it features a carbon fiber front bumper / rear bumper / hood / adjustable splitter, 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, and an adjustable rear wing. This model will be limited to 300-units and be priced from £149,995 in the UK. Continue reading for another video, more pictures and information.
“To keep things under control, engineers installed a thoroughly revised suspension with stiffer springs and manually adjustable Continuously Variable Dampers which can lower the ride height by 15mm for track use. The car has also been equipped with an Electronic Active Differential with an oil cooler as well as a carbon ceramic braking system which uses the first application of Formula 1-style silicon nitride ceramic wheel bearings on a road car. Of course, the XE SV Project 8 also comes with all-wheel drive to help transfer all that power to the ground.,” reports Car Scoops.
