Jaguar took to the Nurburgring its track-ready XE SV Project 8 sedan in 2017. Then Project 8 set the record for the fastest sedan around the Nordschleife 12.9-mile, with a 7:21 lap time. Jaguar broke his own record thanks to a fresh tyre compound, setting a time of 7:18.361. The Ring’s fastest four-door just got faster.
The record-breaking vehicle, as with Project 8 from 2017, was fitted with the Track Pack . The package removes the back seats and adds a cage to the roll. Also included in the vehicle was a set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Rs. These tires increase the efficiency of the normal Pilot Sport Cup 2s of the past car, using compounds from the competition tires of Michelin.
