Jaguar Will Take You Around the Nurburgring in an XJR575 or F-Type SVR

Ride around the 'Ring in a 575-HP rocket

Jaguar has turned two of its hottest vehicles into taxis, but not just any taxis. The Jaguar XJR575 and F-Type SVR will whip passengers around the harrowing N rburgring Nordschleife as part of the Jaguar Race Taxi experience that runs through November.

Professional drivers will take passengers along the 13-mile circuit in one of these powerful vehicles. Choosing between the two vehicles will be tough, because both pack a raucous 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 good for 575 hp. The F-Type SVR likely has the acceleration advantage, though, hitting 60 mph from a standstill in 3.3 seconds according to our tests. Jaguar estimates a 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds for the XJR575, although that number is probably conservative since we've tested a 2014 XJR making its mark in 3.8 seconds.

While the F-Type SVR can only take one passenger around the 'Ring at a time, the XJR575 can hold three. Jaguar is charging 199 euros per lap in either vehicle, and the experience includes a safety briefing and a post-lap review of the footage. Jaguar has previously offered 'Ring rides in the F-Type SVR at a rate of 295 euros.

Dates are going to start filling up, so if you're interested, you can book your lap with Jaguar here.

There isn't any word on price, but it's probably safe to assume commissioning a one-off Ferrari is expensive. Very expensive.
