Despite its poor safety record, the Fiat Panda continues to receive mostly positive media reviews, although the scores have tended to decline over time.
 

The new Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is the second limited edition model from the marque’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) department.

Following on from the F-Type Project 7, which was unveiled in 2014, Project 8’s ambition is to deliver a four-door saloon delivering supercar performance. Unfortunately for British fans of a British car company, the most powerful Jaguar road car ever made will only be built in left-hand drive.

The XE SV Project 8 is powered by a 600hp version of JLR’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine, producing a top speed of 200mph and a 0-60mph time of 3.3 seconds.

Customers can choose from two specifications: the standard four-seater model or an optional two-seater Track Pack edition with carbon fibre racing seats.

   

300 examples of the XE SV Project 8 will be built, and will be the first model to be assembled by at the new SVO Technical Centre in Coventry.

The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is making its debut this weekend at the Goodwood Festival Speed, with UK pricing starting from £149,995.
