Itâ€™s rare to see Jaguar XE SV Project 8 version. So this one of Jaguarâ€™s stately sports sedan is a mad machine with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 under the hood, tuned to produce no less than 592 horsepower (441 kilowatts) and 516 pound-feet (700 Newton-meters) of torque. Thatâ€™s enough to make it Jaguarâ€™s most powerful road car.
We donâ€™t have many details on this particular drag racing venue beside this video footage which comes from Gumbal on YouTube. Mercedesâ€“Benz competitors show up to challenge the Jag, including a red AMG GT R, a C63 sedan, and an AMG GT 63 S 4-door.
That last one is something of a grudge match, because Mercedes claimed a â€œfully fledged four-seater production carâ€ NÃ¼rburgring record with its GT 63 S last October. The time was approximately four seconds slower than the Jaguar.
The cars line up a couple of times for side-by-side runs, but letâ€™s just say the outcome is inconclusive.
