The new Jaguar F-Type SVR is the first Jaguar SVR, developed to exploit the lightweight aluminium sports car’s full potential while retaining its inherent tractability and day-to-day usability. The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is a 200mph, all-weather supercar. Raising the output of Jaguar’s supercharged 5.0-litre V8 to 575PS and 700Nm enables the F-Type SVR to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds, with a maximum speed of 200mph.
The new Jaguar F-Type SVR it’s not just more powerful; the SVR models are also 55 pounds lighter than their respective F-Type R AWD analogs. 35 of those pounds were saved by replacing the standard steel exhaust with a lighter, more aggressive titanium exhaust system.
A host of aerodynamic upgrades, including a flat underfloor, front splitter and rear venturi, help to reduce lift and drag, as well as improve breathing and cooling.
The electric power steering rack, adaptive dynamics suspension, torque vectoring program, dynamic stability control system have all been tweaked for more sporting performance. And, of course, there are the requisite suspension upgrades — including new dampers, anti-roll bars and stiffer rear knuckles — and wider tires stretched onto lightweight 20-inch forged wheels.
The F-Type SVR’s performance does not come at the expense of comfort. The cabin gains cosseting 14-way SVR Performance seats finished in Jet black leather with a distinctive Lozenge Quilt pattern, contrast stitching and micro-piping and headrests embossed with the SVR logo.
The new Jaguar F-Type SVR will debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Orders for the $126,000 USD vehicle are now open while deliveries are slated to kick off this summer.
