The supercar-baiting Jaguar XE SV Project 8 saloon has blitzed the four-door car track record at the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, in California.
Weeks after the I-PACE set the production EV record around
the 2.238 mile race circuit, racing driver Randy Pobst took the 200mph, 600PS,
5.0-litre V8 executive saloon around in 1min 37.54sec beating the record he set
in a Cadillac CTS-V by almost a second.
This is not the first record this Special Vehicle Operations
fettled XE has set, with the SV Project 8 lapping the Nürburgring
Nordschleife’s 12.9-mile circuit in 7min 21.23seconds late last year.
