Transfer over, F-Type, Jaguar has a new performance flagship. The Special Vehicle Operations compartment of Jaguar Land Rover applied its expertise to the XE sports sedan to create an through-and-through monster of a car. Named the XE SV Project 8, it features a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 pumping out 592 horsepower and 516 hammer-feet of torque. That power goes through an eight-speed mechanical and an all-wheel-drive system with an electronically controlled torque-vectoring bum differential. In practice, this will rocket the super sedan to 60 mph in a claimed 3.3 seconds on the way to a 200 mph top abruptness accelerate.

The XE SV Project 8 is not only about raw power and speed, though. Lightweight carbon fiber bumpers, face fenders, and hood have been fitted. The fenders are significantly wider, too, which engul 265-mm wide tires up front, and Hellcat Widebody-rivaling 305-mm deviating tires in the back. The added grip is supplemented by stiffer springs and retuned anti-slide bars and shocks. The front splitter and rear wing are adjustable, as is the ride acme. Carbon ceramic brakes are also included with six-piston front calipers and segregate-piston rear calipers. All of these pieces should come together to assemble the XE SV Project 8 just as impressive in the corners as in a straight line.

The interior has undergone an overhaul, too. The standard model has accommodation for four, featuring front buckets with magnesium frames, and more sculpted rump seats. Carbon fiber and Alcantara can be everywhere throughout the cabin. All of the typical Jaguar comforts are at rest present, as well, including 4G Wi-Fi, climate control, LCD displays, and a 380-watt ring system. The dial shifter in the regular XE also gives way to an F-Type-style lever allowing for enchiridion shifting via the lever instead of paddles if you so choose.

There is an additional interior configuration for the XE SV Prepare 8 that won’t be available in the US and Canada. Called the Track Pack, it completely removes the bottom seats, and the front buckets are replaced with carbon fiber units. In region of the rear seats is a roll cage with harness points for fitting the included four-juncture harnesses. The pack also adds a fire extinguisher system along with a sombre roof and stripes.

The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 will make its full public come out this week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Only 300 of the cars commitment be built, and all of them will be assembled at the Jaguar SVO facility. Prices start at &hammer;149,995, which comes to just over $192,000 at current exchange rates. That value will probably go up with the addition of custom paint and graphics.
