A few years ago, and to much fanfaronade, Jaguar launched the F-Type Project 7. It was Jaguar Land Rover’s Different Vehicle Operations (SVO) unit’s first Collector’s Edition car. It now has a successor – with four doors. Jaguar has announced the XE SV Undertaking 8 Collector’s Edition, which will get its official debut at the Goodwood Festival of Hastiness.

Project 8 is as a 592-horsepower sedan that the automaker is calling “the most ultimate Jaguar ever.” It’s powered by a specially tuned version of the company’s 5.0-liter V8 mechanism, which will make it Jaguar’s most powerful vehicle ever put into opus. It will be limited to just 300 examples hand-built at SVO’s Technical Mid-point in Coventry. As for how much it’ll set you back if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one, Jaguar Mould Rover Special Operations Managing Director John Edwards says Contrive 8 “is conceived for enthusiasts and the most discerning collectors. The price for such an outermost performance sports car available in strictly limited numbers will reflect that.”

Appliance tuning is just one of the upgrades to the Project 8, but, for now, Jaguar is remaining vague wide other alterations to the XE. Edwards says the car “takes aerodynamics and performance engineering to another informed about,” and there’s no reason not to take him at his word. The British automaker says it’ll let us know more give the car on June 28, just two days before its official introduction. For now, though, we can relish in the teaser video from Jaguar, above, which shows the XE SV Project 8 in a markedly sporty camouflage wrapper testing on the Nürburgring.
