I was confused, as i thought the limiter was 155mph, but makes sense with the tires. i have the 20" propellers with P Zero's on the XE S (380HP). tried to take to to the limit, but it seems the car stopped creating power at 197km/hr - i was only at 4000 RPM or so at that point. no tune, just stock

You hit the factory 121mph limiter so the car essentially cut off power making ability to prevent going faster. By comparison an XJ40 can run 140mph and a naturally aspirated X100 does 154. All XE's are limited to 121 save for the Project 8.

I've taken my car to the limit and the car wants more given its the same motor as the F-type. I went with the Velocity tune and now I dont have that limitation. It's a personal choice and you have to consider the drawbacks, however now I now feel that the car is properly at its best. You do have to consider the tires from the factory only rated 130mph. I love the tune for how I drive the vehicle and now the true power is unleashed. With a proper tune you will have to consider the proper tires for the unlocked speed. The tune makes all the difference if you are into that type of thing but I think Jag should have made this an option right out of the gate. Hello, Project 8 put a V8 into the same compartment as the V6 and everyone knows about the same block being modified.

So if it's performance you want, go with a tune, change the tires, and enjoy what this engine is meant to do. It's essentially a F-type with 4 doors, I know as I have friends with both the V6 and V8 models.
Actually the XE S comes equipped with Y Rated (186 mph max) tires from the factory, yet the car is still electronically limited to 121 mph which makes no sense at all.

It doesn't really matter how safe a production car is, if you crash it at 120mph plus someone is going to get hurt. Maybe Jag is trying to keep the safety stats high. The XE was the safest production car when it first came out, from memory, although Jag didn't really push that as a factor to buy.

Awesome! The build on ours has started. I had spaced the monogram aluminium as finishers and thought to change but it was too late.

Can't wait to see pics once you'll take delivery, if you will want to post them. Do you organize a built to specs car at any Jaguar dealer? Just want to say thanks for supporting the marque. It's buyers like you that keep any make afloat.

Thanks! Actually having had the xe since 2015, when the pics came out of the new one it was pretty much as though Jag had read my wish list, so it was an easy decision. Especially when I am getting a lot more car for the money.

I just got my hands on the inclusions and pricing guide and worked from there. Then I checked it all on the configurator online. The packs are very cheap on the hse, so our new p300 is specced with sunroof, black pack, dynamic pack, tech pack, monogram finishers, surround sound, ionizer, all in firenze red and on venoms (I wanted propellers which would have been a cheap addition but my missus prefers the venoms).

Should be a great car. Our p300s are rwd not awd so maybe it will be a little quicker.
