Jaguar – XE Project 8 – F-TYPE Project 7 – SVO

‘SVO’s raison d’être is to produce halo vehicles that push the boundaries in terms of luxury, performance and all-terrain capability. Project 8 is a great example of what happens when enthusiastic designers, engineers and manufacturing specialists are given the opportunity to create an extreme performance sports car without compromise.

Project 8 will be assembled by hand in the new SVO Technical Centre, and we’re confident that our enthusiastic and demanding clients will love driving Project 8 as much we do!’

– John Edwards, Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director

‘Project 8 is a performance-driven car. As such, all of the enhancements we’ve made to the XE sports saloon – already a benchmark for dynamics – are established through physics as well as aesthetics. The result is clearly a powerful looking and very fast motor car.

The aerodynamic elements are hugely significant beyond 150mph, even more so beyond 180mph. This is one of the most extreme vehicles we have ever created, but still very much a Jaguar.’

– Ian Callum, Jaguar Design Director


Châssis Jaguar XE SV Project 8

Le châssis a été rudement revu pour faire passer la puissance avec suspension renforcée équipée de ressorts réglables, freins en carbone-céramique de 400mm avec étriers à six pistons à l’avant, et jantes forgées de 20 pouces.

To ensure optimum performance on road or track, Project 8 endows the XE’s double-wishbone front and Integral Link rear suspension with stiffer springs and manually adjustable Continuously Variable Dampers (giving a 15mm lower ride height for track use), debuts a new Carbon Ceramic Braking system, an industry-first use of Formula 1-style silicon nitride ceramic wheel bearings on a road car, and incorporates a rear Electronic Active Differential (EAD) with oil cooler – a first for XE.

The high-performance theme continues inside, with subtle applications of Gloss Carbon Fibre trim as well as Alcantara, on the rim of the Project 8 Sport Steering Wheel, instrument binnacle and door cards. The eight-speed Quickshift transmission can either be operated by aluminium paddle shifters behind the steering wheel or by a central Pistolshift lever – another first for XE.

Project 8 is also the first Jaguar to feature a dedicated Track Mode, which tailors driveline and stability control systems for circuit use, and sharpens both throttle and steering responses for ultimate precision and driver feedback.

‘We have really been able to unleash the potential of our engineering and design teams in specifying Project 8. We are at the beginning of a very challenging and exciting development programme which will see us focus on ensuring Project 8 delivers track performance on a level previously not targeted by Jaguar.

The SVO team is full of performance car enthusiasts that are now briefed to deliver motorsport science and soul in what is effectively a four-door supercar.’

– Mark Stanton, SVO Director


Jaguar XE SV Project 8 – The Spirit of Extreme Performance


Introducing the most powerful, agile and extreme performance Jaguar road car ever – the 200mph, 600PS XE SV Project 8 saloon from Special Vehicle Operations. Project 8 is a hand-built four-door XE with supercar performance. To ensure exclusivity, no more than 300 examples will be created, each assembled at SVO’s Technical Centre in Coventry.

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 – Performance Pedigree


Jaguar XE SV Project 8 puts the ‘Special’ in Special Vehicle Operations. Watch as Jaguar’s Ian Callum, Design Director, and Wayne Burgess, SVO Studio Director, explain the subtle yet integral details that make Project 8 a true Collectors’ Jaguar.


Moteur Jaguar XE SV Project 8

Avec sous le capot du félin mécanique, le bloc bestiale V8 5.0L Supercharged de la F-Type SVR de 575 ch. trouve 25 ch supplémentaire. La puissance annoncée se situe à 600 ch pour 700 Nm de couple.

Avec un échappement actif en titane, le son devient encore plus davantage animal…

Ce super-bloc est associé à une boîte automatique à huit rapports ‘Quickshift’ et la transmission est intégrale à 4 roues motrices. Avec 1,745t pour poids, Jaguar annonce le 0 à 96 km/h (0 to 60 mph) en 3,3 secondes et une Vitesse Max de 321 km/h (200 mph) !

Jaguar XE SV Project 8 by SVO est le véhicule Jaguar de route homologuée la plus puissante jamais produite.

Project 8 exclusively features the most highly tuned version of Jaguar Land Rover’s 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 petrol powertrain. The 600PS power unit, which has a Titanium Variable Active Exhaust, is complemented by Jaguar’s All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system and motorsport-derived aerodynamics to deliver a 200mph top speed and 0-60mph in 3.3sec*, making Project 8 the fastest accelerating Jaguar yet.

Fundamental to the performance of the most track-focused car SVO has ever produced, Project 8 features a number of purposeful modifications to the award-winning XE’s lightweight aluminium body panels, including: Carbon Fibre Bumper with enhanced Cooling Ducts, vented Carbon Fibre Bonnet, flared bodywork covering 20-inch forged aluminium alloy wheels, adjustable Front Splitter, Flat Underbody, rear Carbon Fibre Bumper, rear Diffuser and adjustable Rear Aerodynamic Wing. Project 8 will be the lightest V8 sedan in the Jaguar range.
