592HP Jaguar XE SV Project 8 Can Be Your Nürburgring Race Taxi For €199

Jaguar has found a way to make more money with its 600PS (592hp) XE SV Project 8 super sedan.

Since not many mortals can afford to spend almost $190,000 to get one of only 300 cars, the automaker has found a new use for the V8-powered sedan. The XE SV Project 8 is from now on a Nürburgring Race Taxi.

That means anyone can hop in and enjoy a hot lap in the world’s quickest production sedan on the “Green Hell.” There’s only one condition, though: those who are interested must pay Jaguar €199 ($227).

While that isn’t exactly cheap, it will give people a rare opportunity to experience the thrill of riding in a two-seat XE SV Project 8 with Track Pack. That’s the same spec as the car that lapped the Nordschleife in 7 minutes 21.23 seconds in November 2017, beating many coupés and supercars in the process.

As you can imagine, a hot lap in the XE SV Project 8 won’t be a “walk in the park.” Jaguar’s professional drivers will give thrill-seekers something to talk about as the car will exceed 250 km/h (155 mph) in some areas. Furthermore, passengers will experience g-forces of up to 1.8g around the 20.8km (12.9-mile), 73-turn circuit.

The Track Pack-equipped Project 8 Race Taxi joins the 575PS (567hp) Jaguar XJR575 Race Taxi, the fastest and most powerful XJ ever. Jaguar Race Taxi experiences will be available until the track closes in mid-November, and will return for the open season in 2019. You can book your lap online here.

    So 199 Euros means I get to experience a total system break down in the middle of it, of which we’ll pull alongside the Alfa Giulia Quad Ring Taxi and compare notes on who broke down first.

    I’m sure it’ll be good times.

    British and Italians can design cars well, but can’t build a reliable car for shit. You’d think over time they would actually finally improve and get it, but nah. Unreliability is apparently a tradition.
