New XE SV Project 8 conquers the world
It has been an action-packed summer for Project 8, the most extreme performance Jaguar ever. Designed, engineered and hand-assembled by SVO, the dramatic XE-based saloon combines the power of a 600PS 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 with dynamic agility and all-wheel drive traction.
Fresh from its Goodwood Festival of Speed ‘Showstopper’ award, Project 8 travelled to California for the Monterey Car Week celebrations. A Velocity Blue four-seater showed Project 8 in roadgoing guise – complete with ISOFIX anchor points for rear child seats. Meanwhile, a track-ready Valencia Orange model wowed the knowledgeable crowds at the Laguna Seca raceway with its searing pace and rear-biased Intelligent Driveline Dynamics.
Following its success in the US, the next stop on Project 8’s incredible journey was the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, where it took pride of place on the Jaguar stand alongside the new E-PACE SUV and I-PACE concept.
No more than 300 Project 8 cars will ever be built. And judging by the reaction from enthusiasts on both sides of the Atlantic, its place in the annals of iconic Jaguars is already assured. Click below to explore more.
