Engineering fine-tuning on the new Jaguar XE SV Project 8 has almost finished, ahead of production starting in June. Since its public debut at last July's Goodwood Festival of Speed, the fastest-ever four-door Jaguar has undergone numerous enhancements to ensure Project 8 is the fastest and most thrilling of all road-legal four-door sedans.

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 is nearly 11 seconds quicker than the previous fastest sedan around the legendary 20.8km German circuit and puts the 441kW Project 8 ahead of some of the world's fastest two-door coupés and supercars.
