Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said, “The purity of the F-TYPE’s form is something truly special, but in designing the new F-TYPE SVR we had the opportunity to create something even more dramatic. Every additional form, line or component is there for a reason, and contributes to the car’s increased performance as well as its presence. Cutting-edge aerodynamics have always been fundamental to Jaguar design, and everything from the enlarged air intakes to the active rear wing is essential to the new F-TYPE SVR’s dramatic looks and 200mph potential.”
While the new F-Type SVR sports a handful of changes, the most notable is the deployable rear wing, which is “more effective and more aerodynamically-efficient in both raised and lowered and positions”. The SVR variant is 25Kg lighter than the AWD F-Type R, and with options including the Carbon Ceramic Matrix brake system and carbon fibre roof the weight savings double up – 50Kg to be precise.
The F-Type SVR, Jaguar’s fastest and most powerful series production road car, is powered by the supercharged 5.0-litre V8 unit that puts out 567bhp and 700Nm. The supercar can accelerate from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds, and is capable of achieving a top speed of 322Km/h (coupe) and 314Km/h (convertible).
