Jag’s SVO-developed XE SV Project 8 is now the world’s fastest four-door car after a prototype smashed the lap record for the Nürburgring.
It’s incredible time of 7min 21.23sec is nearly 11 seconds quicker than the previous fastest sedan around the legendary 20.8km German circuit.
It puts the 441kW Project 8 ahead of some of the world’s fastest two-door coupés and supercars.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is that although Jaguar is committed to bringing the car to production, it will be available only in left hand drive.
The XE SV Project 8 is the most extreme performance road-legal Jaguar ever, designed, engineered and hand-assembled by SVO.
It’s capable of dispatching the dash from 0-100km/h in 3.7sec and has a top speed of 322km/h.
Production will be limited to 300 units for sale worldwide, priced from £149,995 in the UK.
