If you’ve been planning a visit to Germany’s Nürburgring, you may want to rethink your ‘Ring taxi rental plans. Thrill-seeking tourists will be able to experience one of the most challenging road courses in the world, the ‘Ring’s infamous Nordschleife, riding shotgun in a Jaguar F-Type SVR.
The newly launched Jaguar Co-Pilot Nordschleife program lets customers take a lap in the passenger seat of a new F-Type SVR coupe for 295 euros ($334 at today’s exchange rates). That price gets you a racing suit, helmet, HANS device, and a seat in the 575-hp version of Jaguar’s two-seat sports car. Onboard cameras are also provided to capture all the track’s sights and sounds, including the roar of the SVR’s supercharged 5.0-liter V-8. Each Co-Pilot Nordschleife car is fitted with a roll cage, Recaro racing seats, and racing harnesses in addition to the SVO-tuned suspension and all-wheel drive that come standard on all SVR models. The ‘Ring Jags also get their own unique livery on a Firesand Orange Metallic paint job.
“The weather at the Nürburgring is famed for being unpredictable and the new Jaguar F-Type SVR is the perfect car to tackle the undulating track in variable conditions,” said SVO director Mark Stanton, in a release. “The Nordschleife is a fantastic circuit on which to experience all of the engineering enhancements my team has applied to the F-TYPE SVR.”
So if you want to experience the nearly 13 miles and 100-plus corners of the Nordschleife in a 200-mph Jag, you can book your ride here.
