has turned two of its hottest vehicles into taxis, but not just any taxis. The and will whip passengers around the harrowing as part of the Jaguar Race Taxi experience that runs through November.

Professional drivers will take passengers along the 13-mile circuit in one of these powerful vehicles. Choosing between the two vehicles will be tough, because both pack a raucous 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 good for 575 hp. The F-Type SVR likely has the acceleration advantage, though, hitting 60 mph from a standstill in 3.3 seconds according to our tests. Jaguar estimates a 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds for the XJR575, although that number is probably conservative since we've tested a making its mark in 3.8 seconds.

While the F-Type SVR can only take one passenger around the 'Ring at a time, the XJR575 can hold three. Jaguar is charging 199 euros per lap in either vehicle, and the experience includes a safety briefing and a post-lap review of the footage. Jaguar has previously at a rate of 295 euros.
