I was watching a youtube video about the M5CS which is $190,000
M5 is bigger than XE... My point is that as soon as you push the linitts...Price is going UP... Sadly but makes sense.

After checking the M5CS did 7.34 at full Nring.... Shows you how difficult is to go under the 7.30.
So Project 8 is somehow a remarkable project.

I was able to get one in August 2021. for a 4 doors. It does amazing. Love the car for what it can do and for what I can not do))). The style is amazing to me.
Great fun car

Like I stated, I'd look at Jaguar. Wasn't really aware of this car. Things that immediately spring out are the hp and Nurburgring lap times. As good a place as any to start.

Claimed 4 seater Nürburgring record, yet the tested car doesn't even have backseats. Ironic.


User avatar

There's a Tesla Plaid in the 1/4 mile done the same. I guess it's just done.


User avatar

Corvolet3  5m ago @ChironSS

Yeah, the Plaid is a hoax as a whole. Last time a video with an insane 1/4 mile of 9.2 whatever existed, it was taken down. Coincidence? ;)


User avatar

Max77019  1w ago

Hi, the 1/4 mile is not relevant too much.
Hitting the gas in a straight line is quite basic ish.
Most of the cars fail after a few turns.
Good to note that the powertrain is not overpowering the frame and systems. Saying this because a lot of cars have a good engine but then when turns and speed get a bit crazy, most of the cars feel ....unsafe ish

I feel like the jaguar de sv project 8 is rivals with cars like the bmw m4 gts, or the upcoming Mercedes c63r. The jaguar xe sv project 8 is clearly built for the track, so its rivals are the track oriented variants of the bmw m3/m4 and the Mercedes c class amg.

Hi, Looks like the M4GTS did 20+ seconds at the Nring. Jeremy Clarkson said that it is better than any hot M cars. Since he did test/track/crash many cars. I tend to listen.

ya its meant to go up against the big guns - cts-v, e63 amg s, m5 and m6, audi rs7....ect. but its built more like the Porsche gt3 rs and m3 gts/m4 gts. by which I mean its more of a track car for the street. imo is much better than their project 7


User avatar

Inline 6 rules  5y ago @hostboy

No! Learn the categories! Jaguar XE is in the same category as the Mercedes C, BMW 3, Audi A4, Cadillac ATS, Lexus IS etc. Jaguar XF is the rival of the Mercedes E, BMW 5, Audi A6, Cadillac CTS, Lexus GS.



User avatar

hostboy  5y ago @Inline 6 rules

I'm talking acceleration. It beats the CTS-V.


User avatar

hostboy  5y ago @Inline 6 rules

Who even gives a shit about how big it is. BMW's only sedan with 600 hp is the special M5/M6. Mercedes will probably bring the C63 R and they already have the E63 S.


User avatar

Kain  5y ago @Inline 6 rules

ya you're right, the xe is in the same class as the c63, giulia ect.
the XF & XJ's are in the same class as the M5, RS6 & RS7, Lexus GSF and CTS-V and so on.


User avatar

Kain  5y ago @hostboy

im betting the new C63 R will use the same motor and setup as the AMG GT R, 585ps (577hp) and 516lb-ft... or 590lb-ft. not sure if it has an overboost for the first 15 seconds or so, but that's one comparison id love to see, c63r vs this

what the eff are you on? This is a limited edition $200,000 car. For that money, you can buy all 3 of the cars mentioned.

Kain2029  4y ago @saxy

The BMW m4 cs is 158,000$ alone and the gts is more, they're in the save boat as the pro8

Hi,
RS7 did 7.49 on the 20.6 if not wrong. 26 seconds difference.
Which is big/little time gap but still makes it to a 1.3 Km gap. A bit less than a mile.


User avatar

Max77019  1w ago @saxy

But none of them do 7.13 at the 20.6 km at the Nring.
Every second written off the chronometer is $5,000 or $10,000 added to the car. Excelpt for the Camaro LTE L1... I think, Chevrolet is at a loss on every car they sell...

Max77019  1w ago @Kain2029

I bought mine in August 2021 for way less than $200K. Included was a good car cover, a 5 year maintenance plan! Cool! and 5+2 years Jaguar Warranty.
I can`t complain. Still an expensive car. BUT it does everything. I have a carazy capable car. To me awesome design. 4 seats. A big trunk and a good network of Jaguar repair facilities. Interior has just what you need with no excess as they tried to keep the weight down 1740 kgs
