Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division announced the brand’s “most powerful and extreme performance vehicle ever” — the new Jaguar XE SV Project 8.

“The time is right for SVO to produce the most extreme performance road car in the history of Jaguar,” said John Edwards, MD of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations. “The SVO team is possessed by the spirit of performance and committed to creating the most thrilling driving experience imaginable.”
“Our clients worldwide were thrilled by the F-TYPE Project 7. The new XE SV Project 8 takes aerodynamics and performance engineering to another level – it is conceived for enthusiasts and the most discerning collectors. The price for such an extreme performance sports car available in strictly limited numbers will reflect that.”

The XE SV Project 8 will be the second Collectors’ Edition vehicle from SVO, following the successful launch of Jaguar F-TYPE Project 7 in 2014.
The car is powered by a tuned version of Jaguar’s supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine, producing an estimated 600PS — making it the most powerful production Jaguar ever produced.
The new Jaguar will be limited to 300 units
The Project 8 will make its public debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex on 30 June 2017 and full specifications will be released two days earlier on the Jaguar website.
