We have bad news for Bmw as their M3 Sedan is not the single taxi available at Nurburgring. Based on the all-aluminium long wheelbase XJ Supersport with Sport and Speed Pack options, the new Jaguar 'Nürburgring taxi' is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine delivering 510 hp and capable to achieve a top speed of 174 mph or 280 km/h. The XJ comes with a non-standard matt grey paint with exterior Sport Pack, while the Speed Pack raised the top speed from 155 mph (250 km/h) to 174 mph (280 km/h). The interior features a full bespoke roll cage and four individual sport buckets, each equipped with four-point harnesses. Said Frank Klaas, Global Head of Communications, Jaguar Land Rover: "We've been running a successful Nürburgring driving programme from our Nordschleife engineering test centre now for some time, as it's the very best place to demonstrate the dynamic abilities of the current Jaguar XF, XJ and XK models.” "Of these models, we found it's the XJ Supersport that most often surprises journalists with its speed simply because they perceive it to be a large luxury car. The XJ is both those things, of course, but its aluminium architecture means it's rigid and lightweight too, which make it a very good car on track. To underline that fact, our engineering team created this special Nürburgring taxi version in which our trained drivers can safely take passengers on very hot laps!"
