Fast-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-turn Green Hell with an HD video recording of their lap.
The F-Type SVR has been developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations as a 321km/h all-weather supercar and is the pinnacle of the F-Type range. Powered by a 5-litre supercharged V8 engine with 575hp and 700Nm, and benefiting from an enhanced chassis and driveline, plus active aerodynamics, the all-wheel9drive F-Type SVR delivers supercar performance in all conditions and can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 3.7 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-litre supercharged V8 developing the same maximum power and torque as the F-Type SVR, it can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds before reaching an electronically limited top speed of 300km/h 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.
