Most automobiles exist to move things and people from A to B. Jaguar’s new XE SV Project 8 appears to exist since some insane scientist-engineers desire to educate 300 very blessed owners a insane physics lesson: when you place a 592 horsepower, supercharged, 5.0-liter V8 at a 3,847-pound automobile, it is going to hit 60 mph in 3.3 seconds, and its highest rate is going to probably be 200 mph.
The XE SV Project 8 relies on Jaguar’s little XE sedan, which will be broadly accessible using a comparatively docile yet exceptionally entertaining 340 horsepower V6. This, obviously, lets that additional 250 horswepower, uh, glow, since you can watch and, mercifully, listen in the movie below. (Spoiler: it seems frightening.)
Just 300 are offered in North America, and they will most likely be in four-seat configuration. Outside our borders, two-seat track-ready models are also accessible.
See? That dorky teacher from high school was correct: physics really is entertaining.
