The Project 8 is a car that's hard to love at first. Asking it to play nice in traffic is like asking Gallagher to simply dice a watermelon -- this car is constantly goading you to give it hell and unleash its V8 power. It's an absolute menace, and at its best when driven like one.
Only 300 of these XE SV Project 8 sedans will be sold globally, each one a hand-built creation that showcases the best of what Jaguar can engineer into its performance cars. The wide, wonderful body panels are all unique to the Project 8; only the door innards and roof are shared with the standard XE. The honeycomb air intakes are punched right into the body panels, and a vast majority of the exterior bits are made from carbon fiber. The long front splitter will have you crawling when exiting every driveway, and the flat, rear diffuser extensions collect the pebbles those meaty rear tires kick up. That huge, rear wing might look like it's been ripped off a, but it's adjustable, and provides increased downforce to keep the XE's rump where it belongs at higher speeds.
The Good With its incredible performance and race-car-for-the-road style, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is unlike anything else you can buy today.
The Bad It is more than twice the price of its closest competitor and the cabin is awash with poor materials and tech.
The Bottom Line The limited-production XE Project 8 is a wonderfully irrational thing, and I wholeheartedly salute anyone who shells out for one.
