Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Touring, limited to just 15 cars in the world

Thanks to Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division, there’s now a less extreme XE SV Project 8. The car is limited to just 15 examples in the world.

This so-called more restrained road-oriented version (also known as Touring edition)  of the extreme XE SV Project 8 features a discreet new rear spoiler, delivering a covert design that belies the 600PS vehicle’s race track-honed performance capabilities.

The new Touring specification is available alongside existing 322 km/h (200mph) Project 8 derivatives, which currently hold production sedan lap records on three continents: the Nürburgring Nordschleife, Dubai Autodrome and Laguna Seca circuits.

The fixed Touring Spoiler replaces Project 8’s adjustable carbon fiber rear aerodynamic wing and is complemented by a fixed front splitter to maintain aerodynamic balance.

Despite this significant aerodynamic revision, the 5.0-liter Supercharged V8 Project 8 with Touring Spoiler retains an extraordinary level of on-road performance and driver engagement for a sports sedan, accelerating from 0-100km/h in 3.7sec (0-60mph in 3.3sec) and on to a limited top speed of 300km/h (186mph).

 “Project 8 has received outstanding critical acclaim since its launch, demonstrating the Special Vehicle Operations team’s ability to create a compact Jaguar sedan with supercar-rivalling performance. Touring specification extends the appeal of Project 8 to performance car enthusiasts and collectors who prefer a more discreet appearance, without compromising its driver-focused on-road dynamics,” Jamal Hameedi, Engineering Director, Jaguar SVO, said.

Special Vehicle Operations will hand-assemble no more than 15 examples of the Touring specification Project 8 at its Technical Center in Warwickshire, exclusively in four-seat configuration.

The Touring version of the XE SV Project 8 or Ultimate Q car is offered in Valencia Orange, Velocity Blue, Corris Grey Satin and British Racing Green paint finishes, minus body decals. The decals are available as an option.
