Spied: Jaguar’s XE SV Project 8 Mule Is A 600HP Hot Rod From UK

We already know that Jaguar will reveal a crazy, 600hp version of the XE dubbed the SV Project 8 in two days and this appears to be one of the mules they’re using for development.

Compared to the car Jaguar previewed on video last month, the car you see in the pictures is wearing a slightly different aero costume, with the front and rear bumpers, side sills and wing to be new.

The wide-body kit remains but the rear wing now appears to be a ducktail instead of the giant spoiler we saw on the aforementioned video while the lower extensions of the bumpers and side sills are also missing.

These clues might indicate either Jaguar is also working on a less extreme version of the XE SV Project 8 or that this is just another prototype of the upcoming super sedan, minus some bodywork parts.

Jaguar is planning to build 300 examples of the XE SV Project 8 which will be the company’s most powerful road-legal model to date as it uses a 600PS version of the supercharged 5.0-litre V8 (591hp).

Judging by just how aggressive this Jag looks and by the half roll cage fitted behind the seats, we would say that Jaguar is planning to position the XE SV Project 8 against similarly-minded models like the BMW M4 GTS but with a whole lot more power.

Jaguar is planning to reveal the XE SV Project 8 on June 28, so watch out for the full details in the coming days.
