      Who said Jaguar's can't be fast, the XE SVR is ridiculously quick.

      This places Jaguar in the top 20 all time fastest (joint 20th) on this circuit. impressive given that (I think), the car will still be fine tuned more precisely and minor kinks sorted out and can probably go even faster in ideal conditions. Still,it's good for marketing and vindication of the abilities of the car which in reality is more to probably gauge the demand for an XE svr regular model.

      Vincent Radermecker is a good driver, but he isn't going to be as committed as a Marc Lieb around the Nurburgring.

      Is the intent to sell it without an interior as well?

      Would be handy to know the spec / performance figures of the car in the description. Sounds beastly though !

      Yes, maybe. I wonder how is the driving feel through the steering wheel.

      only recently ive noticed it on a few cars i think its so the wheel isnt so rigid it becomes brittle and snaps. similar to a rollercoaster rail

      That is some good going. Although it does seem like every lap set by a manufacture is now a lap record in some made up class. I think we just need a straight shoot out, one day, one driver a selection of cars and lets see which is the fastest.

      #TrackAddict everyone would pick an F1 car or an LMP1 car. Obviously you need classes.
