Taxis around the world are a bit on the boring side, but not the ones on the Nurburgring.

Far from being an ordinary taxi, the 322 kilometre per hour cat can now be booked at the Nurburgring where professional drivers will take you around the famous 12.94-mile track. It is part of the new “Jaguar Co-Pilot Nordschleife” program which allows people to ride shotgun for half an hour in the most hardcore version of the F-Type ever, the mighty SVR.

Before you hop into the passenger seat, you’ll be asked to put on a race suit and helmet as well as a HANS (Head and Neck Support) system for safety purposes. You have to be at least 18 years old to book the Jaguar F-Type SVR and it will set you back €295 (about $425 CDN). For your money’s worth, there will also be a safety briefing and the chance to check out the footage after the ride comes to an end.

The 575 horsepower F-Type will be available every weekend until the end of October. If you would rather be on the driver’s seat, prepare to fork out $142,000 in Canada for the coupe while at home in the U.K. it carries a starting price of £110,000 OTR.

In return you’ll get an all-wheel-drive supercar that runs to 96 km/h (60 mph) in three and a half seconds, and tops out at 322 km/h (200 mph). For open-top thrills, there's also a convertible version, but that one is more expensive and a tad slower due to its slightly higher weight.

Jaguar will kick off customer deliveries of the F-Type SVR in both coupe and convertible flavours this summer.
