Two charged Jaguar XE drew a DNA helix in the sandOctober 18, 2018
The picture symbolizes the common pedigree of the machines.
On the Pendine Sands beach in Wales, two Jaguar sedans — the XE 300 Sport and the XE SV Project 8 — depicted a DNA double helix symbolizing a common lineage of “charged” cars. The length of the figure was exactly one kilometer.
Both cars are built on a modular platform iQ [Al] with a predominantly aluminum construction. Some body panels are also made of winged metal. Four-wheel drive with a multi-plate front axle clutch is also common, but Project 8 still has an active rear differential with electronic control.
Jaguar XE 300 Sport is equipped with a two-liter turbofour capacity of 300 hp and 400 Nm of torque. The gearbox is an eight-speed automatic. From zero to 100 kilometers per hour, it can accelerate in 5.7 seconds.
The XE SV Project 8, built by the factory division of SVO, is equipped with a 5.0 V8 compressor engine, the output of which is 600 forces and 700 Nm of torque. To 100 km/h of the car accelerates in 3.5 seconds. Its maximum speed is 322 kilometers per hour.
