Pendine Sands, Wales: Two Jaguar cars with a shared bloodline – XE 300 SPORT and XE SV Project 8 recently created a unique piece of art in the sand, by weaving a 1000-metre long double helix pattern in the beaches of Pendine Sands. Both cars share a lightweight aluminium body structure, outstanding driving dynamics and an all-wheel drive traction, which allowed them to create the artwork with absolute precision.
Much like Jaguar, Pendine Sands in Wales has a rich heritage of speed and performance, having been used for motorsport for over 100 years. The two saloons XE 300 SPORT and XE SV Project 8 are known for their excellent handling, peerless performance and unrivalled dynamics, and that’s what made this feat possible.
The dynamic demonstration of precision and accuracy follows the XE 300 SPORT’s return to the Circuit de Charade in France, where Vincent Radermecker set a lap record for a production saloon around the original 8 km layout last used 30 years ago.
The Jaguar XE 300 SPORT is available with the 300PS 2.0L Ingenium petrol engine and all 300 SPORT models feature unique Dark Satin Grey details including the wheels, rear spoiler, grille surround and mirror caps, along with 300 SPORT badging on the front grille and boot lid.
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 7 min 21.23 sec. 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 1 min 37.54 sec.
