Jaguar has just given its humble XE executive sedan a serious performance boost in the form of the new XE SV Project. The latter has been designed and developed by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).
Jaguar XE SV high-performance sedan makes 600bhp
With the most highly tuned version of Jaguar Land Rover’s 5-litre supercharged V8 developing up to 600bhp, the Project 8 will become the second Collectors’ Edition vehicle from SVO, following the F-Type Project 7 in 2014.
A prototype recently underwent testing at the gruelling Nurburgring Nordschleife. As for the production model, no more than 300 cars, all hand-assembled at SVO’s technical centre in Coventry, will be made for sale globally.
