“…a thrilling and truly unforgettable experience for any car enthusiast – or anybody who just enjoys going very fast.”Phil Talboys, European Engineer Operations Manager, Jaguar Land Rover
The next time you are fortunate enough visit the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife race track in Germany, you will be able to hail a Jaguar F-TYPE SVR and XJR575. The Jaguar Race Taxi experience gives passengers a full-throttle hot lap around the legendary 20.83 km 73 turn circuit.
“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,” said Phil Talboys, European Engineer Operations Manager of Jaguar Land Rover. “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 Jaguar Race Taxi experience in the F-TYPE SVR or XJR575 costs €199 (approximately $344 CAD), lasts for 30 minutes, includes a safety briefing, one lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife, and a video recording of their lap. The F-TYPE SVR can take one passenger and the XJR575 can take up to three passengers, each of whom must be 18 years or older. Automotive engineers estimate that one lap of the 20 km Nordschleife can stress a vehicle’s chassis and drivetrain as much as the equivalent of driving 200 km on a public road.
The Jaguar XJR575 is the fastest and most powerful XJ ever made in the cars 50-year history. Also powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 developing the same power and torque as the F-TYPE SVR, it can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds (0-60 in 4.2 seconds) and reach an electronically-limited top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph).
Passenger laps in the two supercharged Jaguars are available until November 2018.
