For those of you with a yen for speed but don’t have access to a racetrack, Jaguar has the answer. In a bid to prove the roaring power of its F-Type SVR, Jaguar will give supercar fans a chance to go around the famous Nürburgring race course with a pro-driver. The 20.83km circuit was dubbed as the ‘Green Hell’ by former F1 champion Sir Jackie Stewart for its challenging corners, and harsh weather conditions. You can be rest assured, though, that Jaguar intends to maintain maximum safety so that you can experience the thrill of the ride in its full force.

Despite all its infamy and tough conditions, Nürburgring also is also known for its lush scenery (that’s the green bit in Stewart’s description). To be able to catch the visual spectacle, intermixed with the blur of the speed as you go past in the F-Type, a number of precautions have to be taken. The car has a roll cage, racing seats, and harnesses. Passengers also have to wear helmets and neck braces. In exchange for all that (hassle some would say but these could save your life), you’ll be able to receive a precious memento of your experience as the on-board cameras can capture every single second of the ride.

“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 Mark Stanton, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations. While it was deemed out-of-bounds for F1 racing since 1976 (due to racer Nikki Lauda’s near-fatal accident), the track has been a yardstick for supercars everywhere. Everyone from Audi to Nissan has development teams at the circuit for testing.

Well, if all that strikes your fancy, you can book ‘Ring in the F-Type’ experience for €295 per person over at the Nürburgring online shop. Jaguar hopes that you find the experience worth your while, the F-Type SVR might be the supercar you invest in.
