Inside, the XJ’s standard leather seats are replaced with four racing buckets, each equipped with a four-point harness. A full roll cage completes the transformation from luxury car to racer, although Jaguar were kind enough to leave ‘a few’ creature comforts in place such as air conditioning and the all-important Sat Nav.

Acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph is achieved in 4.9 seconds with a top speed of 280 kmph. Besides, removing the electronic speed limited the car is mechanically standard.

Jaguar hasn’t yet announced pricing or availability for its Nurburgring taxi service, but we’ll let you know these details as soon as they become available.
