Move over BMW, there's a new taxi on the Nürburgring and it comes from an unlikely source - Jaguar.

Move over BMW, there's a new taxi on the Nürburgring and it comes from an unlikely source.

Based on the XJ Supersport, Jaguar's taxi is equipped with the Sport and Speed packages. As such, it has a matte grey exterior, a front splitter and a rear spoiler. There's also red brake calipers, gloss black accents and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Interior changes are limited, but include four individual racing seats and a bespoke roll cage.

Like the standard model, power comes from a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 510 PS (375 kW / 503 hp) and 625 Nm (461 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which enables the sedan to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph).
