“…the most track-focused road-legal Jaguar in history – not only the fastest, but also the most agile.” Mark Stanton, Director, Jaguar Land Rover’s SVO division
The 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.
Track Mode sets the ride height of the Continously Variable Dampers 15 mm lower than standard, with the adjustable carbon fibre Front Splitter and carbon fibre Rear Aerodynamic Wing positioned for maximum downforce. The Project 8 generates 122 kg of downforce at 300 km/h (186 mph). The new Carbon Ceramic Braking system uses motorsport-grade Synthetic Racing Fluid which is ideal for use in race conditions such as those at the Nürburgring.
This is the second Collectors’ Edition vehicle from SVO. Hand assembly of no more than 300 cars begins at SVO’s Technical Centre in early 2018 and will be priced from £149,995 in UK.
