Jaguar XE SV Project 8 - BMW M4 GTS Better Beware!
|   Monday, July 24, 2017
The radical sedan will be built in just 300 copies (all left-hand drive) at the SVO Technical Center in Warwickshire, UK, where 20 million pounds were invested.
In the UK, the basic price of a Jaguar XE SV Project 8 will be 149,995 pounds. This amount is justified by radical performance and specifications. In fact, we are talking about a car that has undergone profound changes to become a monster for the circuit.

Under the hood is a V8 engine with a displacement of 5 liters, found in performance models belonging to the Jaguar Land Rover group.
In the case of the Jaguar XE SV Project 8, the engine delivers 600 hp, which makes it possible to go from 0 to 96 km/h (0 to 60 mph) in 3.3 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 200 mph (321.86 km/h).

The driver can select the running mode especially for the circuit (Track mode). It changes the systems that regulate chassis behavior and stability control. Also, Track Mode makes the acceleration response more prompt, and enhances the accuracy and feedback provided by the steering system.

The suspension has rigid springs and shock absorbers with continuously varying response that can be adjusted manually, reducing the ground clearance by 15 mm to better serve running on the track. The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 also uses a new braking system with composite carbon and ceramic discs and titanium exhaust. In fact, lightweight materials with high strength have been used abundantly for many bodywork parts.

Even the wheel grip system is inspired by the one in Formula 1, made from a lightweight composite material.
Customers can choose configurations with 4 or 2 seats. The four seat version has a magnesium structure for the front seats. The version which abandons the rear seat bench has two carbon fiber seats fitted with seatbelts fastened at 4 points. These reduce the weight of the car by 12.2 kg.

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is the second limited edition of the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations Division, following the F-Type Project 7 in 2014.
It can be seen as a proposal for the customer profile that has been attracted by competing models such as the BMW M4 GTS, which has also been modified for extreme track demands. Of course, Jaguar does not offer a fixed coupe on the M4's block. But that's why the XE SV Project 8 is also available in a 2-seater version and boasts performance that outperforms the Bavarian rival!

Specifically, the BMW M4 GTS has an engine with a displacement of 3 liters, turbocharged, six cylinders, and an innovative water injection system, which helps produce 500 horsepower and a torque of 600 Nm. The BMW M4 GTS reaches 305 km/h and sprints to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and its production limited to 700 copies was sold like hot cakes.

Now, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 proposes a bold interpretation of the same recipe, a recipe which has proven there is a market for limited series models with specifications that are fit for the track. Best of luck!
