What was the inspiration for the XE SV Project 8?
“The XE is the most dynamic, nimble and best-handling saloon car we’ve got and we thought: why don’t we put the most powerful engine we’ve got in the lightest, smallest [car] we’ve got and see what happens? A crazy idea, but it seemed like fun.”
Is this a halo car for Jaguar or a showcase for SVO?
“It ticks three boxes. It’s a halo for XE and a halo for Jaguar, and it’s a really important car for SVO. It helps to build our brand.”
What does this demonstrate about SVO’s capabilities?
“We’re three years old as a business and the Project 7 was the first Collector’s Edition car we did. The fact we’re building this car ground up at our facility is important as well. Once we’ve proven our abilities there, if you think about it, we can do anything.”
