2012 Jaguar XJ Supersport Nürburgring Taxi

The so-called "Ring taxis" are specially modified race-ready vehicles designed to tote passengers at high speeds around Europe's famed circuit that circles the village of Nürburg, Germany. 
The heated leather seats were replaced by four Recaro racing buckets. 
A steel roll cage was fabricated, installed and padded in areas where it could come in contact with passengers. Three emergency fire extinguishers were bolted in place. 
Lastly, and as a matter of precaution to keep the floors from getting too sticky, disposable paper barf bags were placed in each of the map pockets. 
Powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 generating 510 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. The race-ready XJ L should hit 60 miles per hour in just over 4.5 seconds with a top speed of about 175 mph. (
