Jaguar’s version of the M3 GTS

It’s called the XE SV Project 8 and with a rear wing as large as my kitchen table it’s certainly on the extreme scale. It can even come with a roll cage and 4 point safety harness incase you don’t quite think it’s extreme enough! it’s fitted with that loved 5.0litre supercharged V8 pumping out 597bhp and is jaguar’s fastest accelerating car doing 0-62mph in 3.3 seconds using an AWD system, and coupled with a variable titanium exhaust it sound like god on earth! The mechanical spec’s on this car are pretty incredible.

For starters it has double wishbone front suspension with an integral link setup on the rear with manually adjustable variable dampers giving you a 15mm lower ride height for track use. Jaguar also debut a new ceramic brake system and an industry first use of silicon nitrate ceramic wheel bearings like in formula one, also an oiled cooled electronic active differential. only 300 of these bad boy’s will ever be made the price will probably be pretty high considering the rarity and the technology Jaguar have incorporated into it. one thing’s for sure though, will it be as good or even better than the BMW M3 GTS?
