Jaguar XE SV Project 8 topples its own Nurburgring record

Not content with the production four-door lap Nurburgring lap record it set in 2017, Jaguar has returned and beaten its own marker with XE SV Project 8. By lapping the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:18.361, the Project 8 slashed 2.9 seconds from its previous best. The key cog in improving that time? A set of Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 R tyres, road-legal rubber that's reportedly a smidgen sticker than the tyres previously fitted to the Project 8.

2020 Mini Countryman spied

The 2020 Mini Countryman has been spied on the streets of Munich, previewing the car's mid-life refresh. As with the revised 'LCI' Mini Hatch range, the Countryman appears to be wearing a fresh grille and front bumper. The headlight internals also look different, although the design team's yellow-and-black camouflage makes it hard to nail down exactly what's changed.
