Jaguar XE SV Project 8 First Look

Edmunds takes a first look at the Jaguar XE SV Project 8. Edmunds Senior Writer Mark Takahashi drools a little bit over the Jaguar XE SV Project 8. This is Jaguar's most extreme performance car whose reason for being is to put down a time at the Nordschleife in the low 7-minute range. Based loosely on the Jaguar XE, it's motivated by a 5.0L supercharged V8 (592 horsepower) and possesses go-fast styling and weight-saving material. Take a listen to that exhaust.

MARK TAKAHASHI: Mercedes-Benz has AMG, BMW has their M Division, MI6 has Q-Branch, Jaguar has SVO, Special Vehicle Operations. [ENGINE STARTS REVVING] This is their latest creation, Project 8, based loosely on an XE. It's not an XE, though. Underneath the hood is a five liter supercharge V8 that makes 592 horsepower. The goal is to put down a time at the norge Life. Up front, we've got all this madness to make it go fast and to keep it cool. So we have all these vents. And I like these lacy little cutouts here. It's almost like a MotoGP bike. We have an adjustable splitter here. There's a ton of carbon fiber, too. Now that's obviously to save weight, and they saved weight throughout the entire car. They shaved off sound insulation. They have a titanium exhaust from the midway back. Even the headlight had to be moved forward, so they can squeeze this giant wheel in there. The only thing that it shares with the XE, exterior wise, is the door panel here and the proof panel here. Everything else had to be completely reengineered, resculpted in order to fit all of these bits and pieces in here, especially the wheels. This has this massive wheel arch back here. I mean, it's gorgeous, it's smoothed out, it blends really well into the body, it's like the first year M Coupe, which I love. So it's got these really aggressive carbon fiber side skirts. And I love this detail here. No step. It's just like a fighter jet. We have this high mounted carbon fiber wing back here. Puts down 269 pounds of downforce at 186 miles per hour. That's impressive. But really, I think I'm in love with the exhaust because I heard this thing start up on the street, and it sounds even more aggressive than my favorite Jag, the F-TYPE R. [ENGINE REVVING] So besides an abundance of alcantara in the front seats, the interior of the XE is pretty much the same. The big kicker is the back seats. You can get a rear seat delete that puts a roll cage back there just in case you want to beat their time on the ring. Good luck. It's not going to happen. With this kind of performance, Jaguar's looking at a 200 mile an hour top speed, zero to 60 time 3.3 seconds-ish, and they're hoping to set a timer around the norge life in the low seven minute range. That's impressive. Don't think that this is just a one-off special project either. They're going to plan to make 300 of these worldwide, costing right around $190 to $200,000. That's a lot of money, sure. But don't be too surprised if some of these elements start showing up in other future Jaguars. They didn't completely write off the idea of an XE SVR variant. And most of these parts are actually built in-house at Jaguar. So the likelihood of these showing up, it's pretty high.
