‘Project 8’ will be Jaguar’s most extreme performance road car yet

Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division has confirmed production of a new limited edition XE SV, known as ‘Project 8’.

Powered by a 591bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8, the new model will be limited to just 300 units, and promises to be the most powerful road-legal car ever built by Jaguar.

The XE Project 8 features widened bodywork, new air intakes and all around ground aerodynamics, as well as an M4 GTS-inspired adjustable rear wing.  All-wheel drive is rumoured and a number of chassis upgrades are expected, including wider front and rear axles.

Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but is likely to be in the region of £120,000, matching BMW’s M4 GTS.  The XE Project 8 will be officially unveiled on the 28th June, before being put through its paces at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.
