Jaguar XE SV Project 8: Souped-up Jag is unveiled

Jaguar has revealed its most powerful road legal car ever in the form of the XE SV Project 8.

The executive saloon has been given a thorough going over by the company’s Special Vehicle Operations division.

Just 300 Project 8s will be sold, with all hand-assembled at the SVO Technical Centre in Coventry.

It has been transformed into a noisy, be-winged performance car. Under the chunky, vented bonnet sits a version of the 5.0-litre V8 also seen in the F-Type SVR sports car — tuned for 592bhp — an increase of 25bhp.

The prototype version is covered in a camouflage wrap in an attempt to hide some design details from prying eyes.

The car will be fully revealed on June 28 ahead of its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
