Jaguar XE SV Project 8

Jaguar SVO is bringing quite the beast of an XE to the game with the SV Project 8. 592bhp 5.0L V8 prototype being tested of course at the Nurburgring. This isn't that new of news as this video came out just about a month ago but it definitely is something to look forward to if your a big XE enthusiasts as I'm sure a lot of us are. With seeing this, it has me wondering what parts they may release that we could potentially buy to get fitted to our XE's as well!!

Here's a video of it in action at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Was really hoping it did a donut in that turn around area. But just listen to the launch.. it's so demonic! It just sounds and looks extremely angry.

Seems like the XE SV Project 8 set a new Nurburgring record, didn't think the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV would be kicked off its pedestal so soon. The sedan with Vincent Radermecker behind the helm had a lap time of 7:21.23, which is around 11 seconds faster than the Giulia QV's time.

Can't get enough of how crazy that V8 sounds when WOT. I just hope that in the lower RPM range that it will still sound good enough. Most of these will be city driven with lower mileage so with that comes a need for street appeal.

The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 was on display at the Autosport International and motor1 had a chance to chat with Wayne Burgess who is Jaguar’s production studio director. I like the way he thinks!
Quote:
“At the end of the day, the engineering team came up with this idea of putting our biggest, most powerful engine into our most compact sedan and seeing where we could go with it,” he explained.
Surprisingly, even though it shares a name with the standard XE, all it retains are the front doors and roof. Everything else was modified.
