THE ULTIMATE Q-CAR: NEW TOURING SPECIFICATION FORWORLD’S FASTEST PRODUCTION SEDAN, JAGUAR XE SV PROJECT 8

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – 10 June 2019: Jaguar’sSpecial Vehicle Operationsdivision has developed a more restrainedroad-oriented version of the extreme XE SV Project 8 featuring a discreet new rear spoiler,delivering a covert design that belies the600PS vehicle’srace 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 circuits including the NürburgringNordschleife, Dubai Autodrome and Laguna Seca.

The fixed Touring Spoiler replaces Project 8’s adjustablecarbonfibrerear 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 from0-60mph in 3.3sec(0-100km/h in3.7sec) and on to a limited top speed of 186mph (300km/h).

Jamal Hameedi, Engineering Director, Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations, said:“Project 8 has received outstanding critical acclaim since its launch, demonstrating the Special Vehicle Operations team’s ability to create a compact Jaguar sedan with supercar-rivalling performance. Touring specification extends the appeal of Project 8 to performance car enthusiasts and collectorswho prefer a more discreet appearance, without compromising itsdriver-focused on-road dynamics.”

Special Vehicle Operations will hand-assembleno more than 15 examples of the Touring specification Project 8 at its Technical Centre in Warwickshire, exclusively in four-seat configuration.

Valencia Orange, Velocity Blue, Corris Grey Satin and British Racing Green paint finishes are available, while the absence of body decals – though optional – confirms this as the ultimate Q car.
