Jaguar tasked the engineers within the Special Vehicle Operations division to take their compact sports sedan, the XE, and put their biggest supercharged V8 in it. Sure enough, the fastest production sedan in the world was born. Since the Project 8’s record-setting performance at the Nürburgring, engineers have made improvements to vehicle dynamics and handling. They claim the Project 8 is faster and more agile than ever before.
On August 18, 2018 Jaguar partnered with Motor Trend to try and break the production sedan lap record at Laguna Seca Raceway. Can the Project 8 prove it's the fastest production sedan in the world?

      I'd like to see the BMW M3 Competition on this list. The '15 M4 ran a 1:39:69 by Randy which is right there with the Alfa at 1:39:65. The M3 (4 door) is known to be quicker in combination with the competition pack with slightly more horsepower but more importantly better suspension configuration to keep the power down. My guess is it would be right there with the CTS-V.

      He beat the Cadillac's record despite actively trying to sabotage the Jag's time(?). (This from the man who beat a Ferrari's time with a Corvette!?). IMO, he's always slanted (leaned) toward American cars and that's why he doesn't get the respect he would've had if he wasn't biased(?).
      Regardless though, the price factor is the always great equalizer for us, the man in the street; that and the fact that the Caddie is available with a manual shifter would make it my 4-door preference!

      Thats a 'production sedan' just as much as a stage 2 audi RS7 or a tuned M5 is.

      Bit overrated this thing. Round the ring it only went 4s faster than the AMG GT63s, 4s over 14miles is nothing, and considering the merc is 2045kg has all its luxuries and didn't take the back seats out for their run shows to me the jag ain't that good.
