Learn more about the performance specs, features, and the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 price below. There will only be 300 vehicles produces worldwide, so be sure to jump on the opportunity to test drive and even take this model home from Jaguar West Chester near Newtown Square and Aston.

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Engine

With a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that delivers 596 horsepower, this is the most powerful street-legal Jaguar in history. Additional performance features help keep up with the roaring engine for a thrilling driving experience.

  • Suspension — The motorsport-derived suspension and ball-jointed damper mounts offer a better response.
  • Modified all-wheel drive system — while the handling is rear-drive-based like a supercar, the Intelligent Driveline Dynamics makes it more advanced. The computer-controlled drive setup has an electronic active rear differential, and there’s even a specialized version of Adaptive Dynamics with the new Track Mode.
  • Two ride heights — Choose from a lower ride height for the track and a higher ride height for street driving.
  • Big brakes — This model has the largest and most advanced Jaguar brakes ever, with 400mm carbon ceramic discs and 6 piston calipers up front, yet unique design saves about 40 pounds in weight.

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Design

  • Light as a feather —  Lightweight aluminum architecture pioneered by Jaguar and carbon fiber elements (including hood, bumpers, fenders, side skirts, front splitter, and rear spoiler) mean less weight and faster speeds. The wheels are also made out of a lighter forged alloy, and the front seats have lightweight magnesium frames.
  • Aerodynamic design — There is an adjustable deep front splitter, rear diffuser, and a large rear spoiler. The spoiler’s angle can be adjusted to reduce drag or increase downforce. At 186 mph, you can get up to 268 pounds of downforce.
  • Performance seats — Both the front and rear seats are upholstered in Ebony leather with Oyster contrast stitching and the magnesium-framed front seats have sport bolsters for more support around corners and curves.
  • Specialized wheels and tires — The forged alloy wheels are lighter and stronger than traditional wheels which are made of cast alloy. Carbon inserts between the spokes reduce drag, and the tires are specially-designed Michelin Sport Cup 2 tires that are excellent whether you are on the track or on Aston roads.

Record-Breaking Performance

At the Nürburgring Nordschleife proving track in Germany, which has been used to test the limits of vehicle performance since the 1920’s, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 broke several brand records and historic records when it completed the lap in 7 minutes 21.23 seconds in 2017, and then broke its own record in 2019 with a time of 7 minutes 18.3 seconds. This 2019 event was historic for several reasons:

  • It was the fastest lap ever for a Jaguar on this track.
  • It was faster than any four-door production-intent sedan in history
  • It was faster than many renowned supercars from brands like Maserati, Lamborghini, Mercedes-AMG, Ferrari, and more
