No Aussie arrival for Jaguar XE SV Project 8

No Aussie arrival for Jaguar XE SV Project 8

Special edition Jag left-hand drive only

What a shame! Australian sports saloon buyers won’t get a chance to own one of just 300 souped-up Jaguar XEs.

Known as the Jaguar XE SV Project 8, the car is a product of the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).

Why did we want to see it here?

The tweaked 440kW 5.0 litre supercharged V8 engine was the main reason, oh, and the all-wheel drive, aerodynamic kit and a zero-100km/h sprint time of just 3.3 seconds!

But all that came to an end today with John Edwards, Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations Managing Director, telling us the 300 cars will all be left-hand drive.

“Project 8 is a great example of what happens when enthusiastic designers, engineers and manufacturing specialists are given the opportunity to create an extreme performance sports car without compromise.

“Project 8 will be assembled by hand in the new SVO Technical Centre, and we’re confident that our enthusiastic and demanding clients will love driving Project 8 as much we do!”
