Jaguar XE SV Project 8 packs a lot of firsts for Jaguar
Jaguar's got a proper beast on its hands.
The XE SV Project 8 packs a 5.0-liter V8 good for 592 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.
Mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, it'll hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and go all the way up to 200 mph.
There's a whole bunch of carbon fiber bodywork to keep the weight as low as possible.
The suspension is height-adjustable.
Carbon-ceramic brakes will bring this bad boy to a halt repeatedly without muss or fuss.
The interior sports a bunch of Alcantara suede, leather and carbon fiber.
Markets outside the US get a two-seat specification with a harness bar, four-point harnesses and carbon-fiber racing seats.
I'll take two, please.
Only 300 of these will be built, so you'd better act fast.
