Jaguar F-Type SVR is the first Jaguar to sport the SVR badge, so named after Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations group responsible for this project.

To go on display at 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, the Jaguar F-Type SVR has been detailed in official release and photos. To be placed above the existing flagship Jaguar F-Type, new SVR will be offered both in coupe and convertible variants.

Featuring a similar exterior and interior design, there are subtle changes which make the new jaguar F-Type SVR more menacing. This includes front bumper with aerodynamics package, flat underfloor, active rear wing made of carbon fiber, uprated chassis, anti-roll bars, wider tyres wrapped around 10 inch forged alloys, stiffer rear knuckles, carbon fibre roof panel, new Titanium and Inconel exhaust system which not only delivers harder sound, but also saves 16 kg, rear venturi reduces lift and drag.

On the inside, it gets new SVR seats with Lozenge Quilt design, sporty SVR steering wheel with paddle shifters made from anodised aluminium, instrument binnacle and centre console wrapped in suede cloth. It also gets Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brake system, Electric Power-Assisted Steering, Adaptive Dynamics, Torque Vectoring, Dynamic Stability Control and All-Wheel Drive systems.

Jaguar F-Type SVR is powered by a supercharged 5.0 liter V8 engine as seen on the F-Type V8S and R variants. This engine will be capable of 575 PS peak power and 700 Nm peak torque due to tweaks on engine calibrations. Being made of a lighter material in a combination of titanium and Inconel makes the new F-Type lighter by 25 kgs as compared to the all wheel drive F-Type R while with carbon ceramic brakes and carbon fiber roof, weight is reduced by 50 kgs.
