Jaguar has introduced the Co-Pilot Nordschleife program that allows you to take a 30 minute ride in a F-Type SVR with a 575 horsepower supercharged V8 around the 12.94 circuit. There are cameras set up in the vehicle to capture your exciting ride.

The F-Type SVR coupes that are being used come fully upgraded in terms of safety. Each one has a roll cage and racing seats with harnesses to protect you and the driver in case of an accident. You'll also be required to wear a helmet, HANS device, and racing suit for safety reasons. The Nürburgring has a reputation for being quite brutal if you make a mistake.

"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. Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division has engineered the F-TYPE SVR to be lighter, faster and more powerful while still remaining a usable supercar every day. The Nordschleife is a fantastic circuit on which to experience all of the engineering enhancements my team has applied to the F-TYPE SVR," said Mark Stanton, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations.

This program will run till the end of October. The cost? €295 per person (about $328.62 at the time of this writing). If you are interested, you can make a reservation here.
