Jaguar pulls covers off XE SV Project 8

Jaguar Turned Its Smallest Car Into The Most Powerful Jag Ever Made

Reflecting the fact Jaguar's dropped a 5.0-litre V8 into an engine bay that normally carries a 2.0-litre turbodiesel, the XE SV Project 8 has a bespoke bonnet with huge air outlets, plus bulging wheelarches and a massive rear spoiler.

Under the chunky, vented bonnet sits a version of the 5.0-litre V8 also seen in the F-Type SVR sports vehicle.

Latest North Korea missile test represents significant advance
But, he added: "We must stop intimidating North Korea and find a peaceful solution to this problem". The Security Council is scheduled to hold closed-door consultations on the missile test on Tuesday.

The Project 8, fairly logically, follows on from 2014's F-Type Project 7. At present, the fastest four-door sedan on the Nordschleife is the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV, though all this could change with the coming of the XE SV Project 8.

Named the XE SV Project 8, the supersaloon is the second "Collector's Edition" auto to come out of the workshops of the Special Vehicle Operations and is, say Jaguar, the most powerful, agile and extreme performance Jaguar ever.

Liverpool eyeing silverware after top-four finish - Milner
Tomorrow we will think about what to do next season and the pressure will be the same, to try to win. Arsenal finished in fifth place with 75 points, four more than they managed a year ago as runner-up.

"The time is right for SVO to produce the most extreme performance road auto in the history of Jaguar", said SVO boss, John Edwards. It will be the second Collector's Edition vehicle from Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division in Coventry after the aforementioned Project 7, with power coming from a highly-tuned 441-kW (591-hp) 5.0-liter supercharged V8. Full technical specifications will be announced closer to the vehicle's debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Not only that, it will become the most powerful road-legal Jaguar in history.

The V8 in the XE SV Project 8 produces a humungous 592bhp, which is 25bhp more compared to the V8 used in Jaguar's F-TYPE-based Project 7. The price of the super sedan has not yet been released, but according to Edwards, the price will reflect the excellent performance of the sedan that is available in such limited numbers. That SVO-fettled droptop was the first Collector's Edition Jaguar, with just 250 examples built.
