Jaguar XJ Supersport Nurburgring taxi crashes on the Nordschleife [videos]

The Jaguar XJ Supersport Nürburgring Taxi has fallen victim to the green hell.

Details are limited but several videos have surfaced on YouTube showing the model losing control and crashing into the barricades. There's no word on the condition of the people involved, but the car features four individual racing seats and an extensive roll cage so hopefully everyone walked away without any injuries.

As a refresher, the XJ Supersport Nürburgring Taxi was billed as thrilling model that "can safely take passengers on very hot laps." It features a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 510 HP (375 kW) and 625 Nm (461 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph).
