Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division is up to it again. They have developed a more “restrained road-oriented version” of the fabulous XE SV Project 8 Touring that features a very chill and discreet new rear spoiler, which delivers a covert design that belies the 600PS vehicle’s race track-honed performance capabilities.
The new Touring specification is available alongside existing 200mph Project 8 derivatives, which currently hold production sedan lap records on three continents at tracks including the Nürburgring Nordschleife, Dubai Autodrome and here in the US Laguna Seca.
The fixed Touring Spoiler replaces Project 8’s adjustable carbon fibre rear aerodynamic wing and is complemented by a fixed front splitter to maintain aerodynamic balance. Despite this significant aerodynamic revision, the 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 Project 8 with Touring Spoiler retains an extraordinary level of on-road performance and driver engagement for a sports sedan, accelerating from 0-60mph in 3.3sec.
The new Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Touring with adjustable front and rear aerodynamic devices, in either the four-seat or the two-seat Track Pack specifications, are now available to purchase. Jaguar.
