Jaguar Xe White Performance – jaguar xe white
In the red, white, and blue—British—corner, accommodated the best able auto Jaguar has anytime sold, the XE SV Project 8, from this point advanced abandoned to be accepted as Project 8. What a aberration of a thing. It makes 592 application from a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 that, oh yeah, additionally produces 550 lb-ft of torque. All that English acerbity is baffled through an eight-speed ZF manual to all four auto via the aforementioned arrangement you’ll acquisition on the F-Type R, so if needed, absolutely 50 percent of the torque can circuit the advanced wheels. The brakes are big, name cast (buongiorno, Brembo!), and carbon ceramic. The adjustable abeyance can bead from Street to Clue approach (you’ll charge to appointment your dealer), and the advanced splitter and big carbon-fiber addition are adjustable, too. Craziest of all, best of the anatomy panels are carbon fiber. In fact, abandoned 20 percent of the aboriginal XE remains, and best of that is the interior. Jag is authoritative 300 examples, and they amount $188,000 a pop. Blimey.
In the red, white, and blooming corner, you accept an Italian blood of a four-door ancestors sedan. Not abandoned did we name the Alfa Romeo Giulia our 2018 MotorTrend Car of the Year, but the smoking-hot 505-hp Quadrifoglio adaptation has additionally never absent a allegory test. Neither has the 280-hp 2.0-liter abundance of the car, but that’s not the car we’re actuality to discuss. No, we’re activity to deliver about the 2.9-liter V-6—a Ferrari V-8 with two cylinders lopped off—and the amazing Giorgio anatomy the Giulia rides on. Designed for a air-conditioned 2.7 billion euros by the gent who oversaw the Ferrari 458 Speciale, the Giulia’s underpinnings are absolutely actually additional to none. You can amateur that back talking about the Quadrifoglio. Whatever makes a action auto adventurous has been amateur broiled into the GQ’s DNA. Unlike the Jag, the 15 percent beneath able Alfa relies abandoned on rear-wheel drive to put its ability to the arena (though it’s the aforementioned transmission). At a not so ablaze 3,785 pounds, the Italian is still acutely lighter than the 4,041-pound Brit. Oh, and at $80,000, the Alfa Romeo is beneath than bisected the Jaguar’s price. And abroad we go.
Even dogs are absolutely acquainted that the added able Project 8 will beat the almighty but outgunned Giulia Quad. The catechism is, how? Well, in agreement of acceleration, the Project 8 hits 60 mph in a wowza 3.2 seconds. That’s 0.1 additional abaft a Porsche 991.2 GT3 with PDK, angry with the Chevy ZR1, and 0.1 advanced of both the Jeep Trackhawk and the new W-12 Bentley Continental GT. The Alfa is slower, but it ain’t no slouch, bustling off a 3.8-second dart to 60 mph. That’s absurd for a rear-drive sedan. That’s as quick as an Aston Martin Vantage. In the division mile the after-effects are about the same, with the Jaguar defective what acclimated to be a supercar’s time of 11.4 abnormal and the Alfa Romeo acute a appealing accursed quick 12.1 seconds. For some context, the 641-hp Lamborghini Urus, the quickest SUV in the world, rips 1,320 anxiety in 11.3 seconds, and the 650-hp Camaro ZL1 takes 11.5 seconds. Check out the allurement speeds for a moment: 121.7 mph for the Project 8 and 118.5 mph for the Quadrifoglio.
The lighter Alfa Romeo aloof outbrakes the Jaguar, advancing in at 99 anxiety against the Jag’s 101. Annihilation about 100 anxiety is exceptional. The absolute aberration shows up on our figure-eight course, area the Project 8 is a abounding additional quicker than the Giulia Q, 23.2 abnormal against 24.2. Couple of credibility here. Like the Richter calibration (kinda), a abounding additional aberration on the amount eight is about an adjustment of consequence faster. Moreover, while a 24.2-second lap is absurd for any car, let abandoned a sedan, a 23.2-second lap for a four-door flirts with apple class. For instance, the BMW G10 M5 does a 23.3-second lap. The Project 8 is a administration freak.
Now, in the additional such instance of Jaguar cutting itself in the bottom I’ve afresh lived through (the added is some abominable business accommodation to abandoned stick the F-Pace SVR on all-season tires in North America, a accommodation that’s back been rescinded), neither of the two Project 8s we activated was able to go into abounding Clue mode. Two. What’s up? Neither car was adapted with the absolute dampers begin on the assembly car, and as such we couldn’t bead the cars all the way bottomward to clue height. Would a Jag Project 8 in abounding Clue approach almanac an alike sweeter figure-eight time? Probably.
We additionally lapped both sedans on the big clue at Willow Springs. We did this for two reasons. One, lapping is cool fun and gives us an alibi to adhere out with our pro shoe and acceptable associate Randy Pobst. Two is that for what seems like too continued in my book, the four-door assembly car lap almanac on Big Willow—1:29.69—has been captivated by the 640-hp third-gen Cadillac CTS-V. Records are fabricated to be shattered, and if any two sedans accept a shot, they are these. Results: The Alfa didn’t appear close, advancing in at 1:31.80, 2.11 abnormal off the big Caddy’s time. There’s no smoker gun or annihilation like that—the CTS-V’s 135-horsepower and 187-lb-ft advantage was artlessly too abundant for the bittersweet Italian to overcome. The Jaguar, however, abrupt the Caddy by 0.1 second—1:29.59—making up for its ability disadvantage with grip, grip, and added adamant grip. Interestingly, the beyond Cadillac weighs 33 pounds beneath than the Jaguar. The Project 8 is aloof that capable. Would the Brit accept gone alike quicker if the abeyance was absolutely in Clue mode? Probably.
We decided—we actuality myself and my Head 2 Head co-host, Jethro Bovingdon—to do article absolutely bonkers with the two sedans. That actuality to shut bottomward a 10.7-mile amplitude of alley and drive up it as fast as we could. At one point, the Giulia Quadrifoglio captivated the Nürburgring Nordschleife auto record, 7:39.00. An amazing time, the aforementioned as a Ferrari F430 Scuderia and a 997 Porsche Turbo. Then (of course) the Jaguar Project 8 burst the Alfa’s record, commutual the Nordschleife’s 12.9 afar in 7:21.2. An astonishing time, and 0.4 additional faster than a Ferrari 488 GTB apprenticed by Christian Gebhardt, Jethro’s assistant from aftermost year’s 24 Hours of Nürburgring (they placed 21st all-embracing and aboriginal in their class). True, that Project 8 had a abounding cage and was bare its rear seats, but Jaguar will advertise you the car like that. Well, advertise non-Americans that car. It’s impressive, whatever the configuration. Because we can’t go to the ‘Ring, we absitively to do article agnate actuality in California. Originally alleged the Sandschleife, the arenaceous aerial arid alley we begin in the southernmost allotment of the Sierra Nevada was bound renamed the Deathschleife. I’ll leave the after-effects of that one a abstruseness for now; to see these two on the Deathschleife, you’ll accept to subscribe to our app and watch the Head 2 Head adventure for yourself.
I will acquaint you this much: Jethro and I both adopted the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio to the Jaguar Project 8, for a few reasons. There’s a antithesis and a archness to the Giulia that bluntly is about as acceptable as sedans get. A few four-doors accept a agnate appropriate sauce. The E39 M5 leaps to mind, forth with the put-out-to-pasture Chevy SS and the Alpha-platform Cadillac ATS-V and CTS-V. That’s about it. The Jag is close, but it’s aloof not there. True, the Jaguar’s council absolutely does feel like a aggregate of the 997.2 GT3 and the fifth-gen Camaro Z28 (the closing actuality a car that Jaguar’s boffins about inexplicably benchmarked), but the car aloof doesn’t dance. Not the way the Alfa does. Yes, sure, true, the Project 8 is the quicker of the two, there’s no agnosticism about that. Every analysis bore out that assured conclusion. However, we artlessly enjoyed the way the Italian collection more. As simple as that. If the abeyance was able to absolutely bead into Clue mode, ability the after-effects of this one been different? Naw.
Then there’s the abhorrent allotment alleged reality. Does 300 cars congenital absolutely calculation as production? Really? Also, $188,000? That’s like, well, that’s like so abundant money it’s kinda nuts. For that array of money, you should footfall out of the Jag absolutely assertive that there’s no added auto on apple that alike comes close. For instance, the big Brit was abandoned able to best the Cadillac by 0.1 additional on the track, and the Jag’s about bifold the price. As already stated, not abandoned does the Alfa appear close, but it’s additionally absolutely bigger to drive. I’d be analytical to see what Jaguar could do to an XE for a amount in band with the Giulia Quad, M3, C63, and ATS-V. A $75,000 to $80,000 little auto that still has a supercharged V-8, all-wheel drive, big carbon brakes, and adhesive tires. Sadly, there’s no XER or alike XFR on the horizon. Sometimes that’s aloof how it is. You apperceive how abroad it is? The Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio charcoal best actuality at MotorTrend. Rightfully so.
