Jaguar Project 8 Nürburgring Lap Record

Added by AutomotiveUploads
Jaguar’s SVO-developed XE SV Project 8 is now the world’s fastest four-door car, following a production-intent prototype’s record lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife. The incredible time of 7min 21.23sec, by racing driver Vincent Radermecker, is nearly 11 seconds quicker than the previous fastest sedan around the legendary 12.9-mile German circuit and puts the 600PS Project 8 ahead of some of the world’s fastest two-door coupes and supercars.

Project 8 is available to order as a four-seat sedan, or with an optional weight-saving two-seat Track Pack, which includes front Carbon Fibre Racing Seats with Four-Point Harnesses fixed to a Harness Retention Hoop in place of the rear seat. Both versions feature adjustable suspension, aerodynamics and electronic systems, which can be configured in Track Mode.
The 7min 21.23sec lap time was achieved with a prototype Project 8 prepared by SVO’s engineers in Track Mode and on production 265/35 R20 and 305/30 R20 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. That time places the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 ahead of some of the world’s fastest two-door coupés and mid-engined supercars around the circuit known as ‘The Green Hell’.
