Jaguar has unveiled the latest and now hottest version of the F-Type – the F-Type SVR. As its SVR badge suggests, this is one Jaguar that is going to take things slow. With a top speed of 200 mph and 575 horsepower on tap, the F-Type SVR takes the F-Type’s performance to new heights.
The F-Type SVR is the first Jaguar model to get the high-performance SVR badge. It’s powered by a supercharged 5.0L V8 that generates 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft. of torque. The V8 is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and can sprint from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
Jaguar did more than just add more power under the hood for the F-Type SVR. Compared to the F-Type R, the F-Type SVR ranges from 55 – 110 pounds lighter. It also slips through the air easier with a restyled front bumper and splitter, flat underfloor, rear venturi and carbon fiber active rear spoiler. Chassis upgrades include new dampers and anti-roll bars, wider tires, lightweight 20-inch forged wheels and new, stiffer rear knuckles.
Delivers of the F-Type SVR will kick off this summer, with the Coupe priced at $125,950 and the Convertible priced at $128,800 plus the $995 destination fee.
