Whitley, UK: Performance car fans can now hail the ultimate taxi rides around one of the world’s most renowned race circuits. The Jaguar Race Taxi experience gives thrill-seekers a full-throttle hot lap in the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR and XJR575, around the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit.
Jaguar race taxi passengers will be driven around the world’s most demanding circuit by hand-picked professional drivers, encountering cornering forces of up to 1.2g on the most challenging sections. They can also relive the excitement of their experience around the 20.83km, 73-turns ‘Green Hell’, with an HD video recording of their lap.
Phil Talboys, European engineering operations manager, Jaguar Land Rover, said, “A ride in the F-TYPE SVR and XJR575 race taxi is a thrilling and truly unforgettable experience for any car enthusiast – or anybody who just enjoys going very fast! Our highly experienced professional drivers are veterans of the Nürburgring 24-hour race, making them uniquely qualified to show customers the true potential of these extraordinary supercharged V8 Jaguars.”
The F-TYPE SVR has been developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations as a 200mph all-weather supercar and is the pinnacle of the F-TYPE range. Powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine with 575PS and 700Nm and benefiting from an enhanced chassis and driveline and active aerodynamics, the all-wheel drive F-TYPE SVR delivers supercar performance – in all conditions – and can accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds (0-60mph in 3.5 seconds).
The Jaguar XJR575 is the fastest and most powerful XJ ever made in the iconic luxury saloon’s 50-year history. Also powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 developing the same maximum power and torque as the F-TYPE SVR, it can reach 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds before reaching an electronically-limited top speed of 186mph while delivering the luxury, refinement and comfort for which the XJ is renowned.
Passenger laps in the two supercharged Jaguars are available until November. The price is €199 per lap in both the F-TYPE SVR and XJR575 and can be booked here.
