JAGUAR BLENDS THE XE TO PRODUCE SOMETHING SPECIAL

Of all models in the current Jaguar range we prefer the handling of the XE of any – including the F-Types.

Now Jaguar has celebrated the shared bloodline of the XE 300 SPORT and fire-breathing XE SV Project 8 by creating a unique piece of art in the sand. The two cars weaved across the beach at Pendine Sands to produce a 1000-metre long double helix pattern.

The shared DNA that unites the XE and SV Project 8 includes the cars’ lightweight aluminium body structure, outstanding driving dynamics and all-wheel drive traction, which allowed the two Jaguars to create the 1000-metre long artwork with absolute precision.

To find the space to create such a large pattern, the two cars travelled to Pendine Sands in Wales. Pendine Sands, like Jaguar, has a rich heritage of speed and performance, having been used for motorsport for over 100 years.

Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar Land Rover said: “The aluminium-intensive body construction of the XE enabled Jaguar to create a car as special as Project 8. These two saloons share the same DNA, delivering excellent handling, peerless performance and unrivalled dynamics.”

The dynamic demonstration of precision and accuracy follows the Jaguar XE 300 SPORT’s return to the long-forgotten Circuit de Charade in France, where Vincent Radermecker set a lap record for a production saloon around the original 8km layout last used 30 years ago.
