The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 has shown its potential again as it claimed another lap record, this time in Dubai.
The 200mph, 600PS, 5.0-litre V8 powered executive saloon broke the lap record at the Dubai Autodrome GP circuit, as Jaguar Land Rover test driver Xavi Barrio Duato navigated it around the 5.39km track in 2:18.81 minutes.
Salman Sultan, Jaguar Land Rover Middle East and North Africa Regional Public Relations Manager, said: “Our aim was to prove the XE SV Project 8 is the fastest four-door saloon in the world by setting records at several tracks around the globe under different climatic conditions and surfaces.”
The Dubai record comes after the Special Vehicle Operations fettled saloon claimed lap records in Germany and America.
