Record broken at Laguna Seca by Jaguar Project 8

12w ago


The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 has broken another lap record to go with its title of being the fastest saloon car at the Nürburgring. This time it's sent records tumbling at Laguna Seca Raceway in California .

At Leguna Seca it went around the track in 1 minutes and 37.54 seconds. Six days before the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 broke this record the Lucid Air electric car set a record of 1 minute and 39.9 seconds.


The Jaguar beat this time by just 2.36 seconds. The driver who got behind the wheel of the Jaguar was four times SCCA World Challenge GT Champion Randy Pobst.

The Jaguar XE SV Project 8 has a total of 600 hp with a 5L V8 engine. 0-60 takes breathtaking 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph. That is in supercar territory but before you want to go and buy one the price is a jaw dropping $188 495.

But if you do have the money and guts to buy the fastest saloon in the...world do enjoy having brown pants to work everyday.
