Beneath the bonnet lies a 5.0-litre V8, similar to the one found in the F-Type SVR.
Built by Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), the Project 8 will feature a 441kW version of Jaguar's supercharged 5.0-litre V8, giving it more than enough horsepower to out-grunt the 331kW BMW M3 and 375kW Mercedes-AMG C 63 S. A camouflaged test mule is now testing at the Nürburgring Nordschleife and will debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month.
The V8 in the XE SV Project 8 produces a humungous 592bhp, which is 25bhp more compared to the V8 used in Jaguar's F-TYPE-based Project 7.
Just to prove how good the XE SV Project 8 is to the world, it is now being put to the test around the Nurburgring Nordschleife while covered head to toe in camouflage to avoid completely ruining the surprise.

Anyway, a source tells People that Thorne "really likes the attention", which is both very clear and very obvious. "Scott is an absolute mess".
New Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is next Collector's Edition sports auto designed, engineered and assembled by SVO.
The new super sedan, the Jaguar XE SV Project 8, will be making its first public debut in Speed's Goodwood Festival to be held on the 30 of June.
It transforms the XE compact executive saloon into a super-aerodynamic performance vehicle with the most powerful version of Jaguar Land Rover's 5.0-litre V8 ever produced. "The SVO team is possessed by the spirit of performance and committed to creating the most thrilling driving experience imaginable". Like the F-Type, the XE will be offered with all-wheel drive and powered by a supercharged V8, albeit it with 25PS more power than the two-seater sports vehicle.
The only other number firmed up for now is the production: Jaguar will make just 300 XE Project 8s, designed for "enthusiasts and the most discerning collectors" across the globe. With production numbers so limited, Jaguar is likely to be forced to heavily vet potential customers, rooting out its truest fans when deciding to whom to sell a vehicle.
