Introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2016, Jaguar unveiled the F-Type SVR. Available in both coupé and convertible body styles along with having all-wheel-drive, it features the same 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine from the V8 S and R, but has a maximum power output of 575 PS (567 hp; 423 kW) at 6,500 rpm and 700 N⋅m (516 lb⋅ft) of torque at 3,500-5,000 rpm, the car can accelerate from 0–100 km/h (0–62 mph) in 3.5 seconds and can attain a top speed of 322 km/h (200 mph), making it the first Jaguar road car since the XJ220 to reach 322 km/h (200 mph). The SVR convertible can attain a top speed of 312 km/h (194 mph).
The chassis has been revised with new dampers and anti-roll bars, but spring rates are unchanged. The tyres are wider, the 20-inch wheels are lighter and the rear knuckles are stiffer. Those new rear knuckles are less susceptible to flexing in hard driving, which means the rear contact patch is more stable, improving mechanical grip. Overall roll stiffness is unchanged, but it has been shifted rearwards to give a more neutral chassis balance, which improves the car’s turn-in characteristics. Special Vehicle Operations also re-tuned the electric steering, the torque vectoring and the stability control systems to give the SVR sharper on-the-limit dynamics. Like the Project 7 the SVR has no engine cover to help with cooling and extra weight can be saved from areas such as opting the carbon roof.
Our car is offered with past Jaguar service history and will have a further service completed at Jaguar prior to leaving for its new home.
