Jaguar-F-Type-SVR-1

After brochures of the Jaguar F-Type SVR were leaked yesterday, the British carmaker has released the first official images and a video of the F-Type R tweaked by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division. The 320 km/h (200 mph) F-Type SVR will make its world debut at the Geneva motor show in March.

The first Jaguar SVR car is developed to exploit the two-seat aluminium F-Type’s full potential while retaining day-to-day usability. Jaguar also says that the lighter, faster and more powerful SVR takes performance, dynamics and driver involvement to a new level, although comfort and duality of character inherent to all Jaguar cars are retained.

“The new F-Type SVR is the first series production Jaguar to be developed by Special Vehicle Operations and benefits from everything we know about precision engineering, performance and design. The result is a 200 mph, all-weather supercar that you can drive every day – we even made a Convertible version so that enthusiasts can revel in the sound from the new titanium exhaust,” said John Edwards, MD of JLR SVO.

We already know that the supercharged 5.0 litre V8 pushes out 575 hp and 700 Nm in the SVR, an improvement over the F-Type R‘s 550 hp/680 Nm. The limited run F-Type Project 7, which is sold out, makes 575 hp and 680 Nm. The all-wheel drive SVR does the century sprint in just 3.7 seconds. Top speed is 322 km/h for the coupe and 313 km/h for the convertible.
