This is how the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 went faster on the 'Ring

Attached Image Jaguar has published the onboard video of its recent record-breaking XE SV Project 8 Nurburgring lap.

With a lap record of 7 minutes and 18.361 seconds, the XE SV Project 8 is still the world’s fastest four-door production car around the Naordschleife, improving its own time by 2.9 seconds and making it 7 seconds faster than the second-best rival.

Driven by Belgian racing driver Vincent Radermecker, the car is no track special and is a production-specced car. With the help of some new sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tyres and the Track Pack, Radermecker manages to do better than its previous lap record.

Other than the Track Pack that removes the rear seats in favor of a roll cage, the car also had its adjustable suspension set to its ‘track’ ride height and the front splitter and rear wing set to their maximum downforce position for the lap record attempt.

Thanks to its supercharged 5.0-litre V8, the 592bhp car can do the century sprint in 3.3 seconds and hit a maximum speed of 320km/h.
