The Jaguar F-Type SVR is the fastest cat in the world
The Jaguar F-Type is a great sports car, part of the company’s Tata-infused renaissance. It looks great, sounds phenomenal, and has a wide variety of powertrain options to satisfy nearly anyone — and now it has one more.
It’s called the F-Type SVR, and it’s a special version of the F-Type that’s been stuffed full of awesomesauce. It’s the first Jag ever to wear the SVR badge — named after the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations group that’s behind the project. It has a supercharged 5-liter V8 producing 575 horsepower, along with upgraded aerodynamics, an even more badass-sounding exhaust system, new suspension, and a whole bunch of go-faster options like a carbon fiber roof panel, carbon ceramic brakes, and more.
That takes it to a top speed of 200 mph for the coupe, the fastest series production car ever built by Jaguar. 0-60 is reached in just 3.5 seconds.
The F-Type SVR was announced earlier this month, but the company has released full specs and pricing, as well as a ton of gorgeous photos — see below. It’s priced beginning around $126,000, firmly in in 911 Carrera GTS territory. But there’s something about owning a Jaguar that suggests a driver who’s a little… different. Plus, it looks absolutely amazing.
The order book is open, with deliveries beginning this summer.
