Jaguar has celebrated the shared bloodline of the XE 300 SPORT and XE SV Project 8 by creating a unique piece of art in the sand. The two cars weaved across the beach at Pendine Sands to produce a 1000-metre long double helix pattern.
Pendine Sands in Wales has been used for motorsport for more than 100 years. In the early 1900s they were used as a venue for car and motor cycle races. From 1922 the annual Welsh TT motor cycle event was held at Pendine Sands.
The shared DNA that unites the XE and SV Project 8 includes the cars’ lightweight aluminium body structure, outstanding driving dynamics and all-wheel drive traction, which allowed the two Jaguars to create the 1000-metre long artwork with absolute precision.
Since its launch in 2017, the XE SV Project 8 has broken a collection of speed records, setting the fastest lap time for a four-door sedan in production-intent specification around the Nürburgring Nordschleife, with a time of 7min 21.23sec. Only last month the super saloon logged a new production sedan lap record in the USA at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, Monterey, California with a time of 1min 37.54sec.
