Introducing the next step in the F-TYPE’s bloodline: the F-TYPE SVR, the new benchmark for Jaguar sports cars, taking the acclaimed F-TYPE to even higher levels of performance and capability. The F-TYPE SVR acts as the new halo to the F-TYPE and Jaguar range alike and is quite simply the ultimate F-TYPE, the peak of road-going and track-ready performance. One measure of track capability is delivering a target lap time of the legendary Nürburgring circuit of 7 minutes 33 seconds.
As the pinnacle of Jaguar sports cars, the F-TYPE SVR comes with exclusive performance technologies and form follows-function styling.
Powered by the most powerful production Jaguar engine with 575hp and 516lb-ft, the F-TYPE SVR reaches 60mph in just 3.5 seconds enabled by significant aerodynamic and chassis improvements, with an electronically limited top speed of 200mph for the Coupe and 195mph for the Convertible.
Evolved from the successful R model, the F-TYPE SVR features aerodynamic aids, including a re-designed active rear spoiler, apertures in the wheel arch liners, unique front bumper and undertray, larger hood louvers and flat rear under-floor,significant gains in down-force are achieved compared to a standard F-TYPE R.
“The new F-TYPE SVR is the first series production Jaguar car to be developed by Special Vehicle Operations and benefits from everything we know about precision engineering, performance and design…The result is a 200mph, all-weather supercar that you can drive every day – we even made a Convertible version so that enthusiasts can revel in the sound from the new titanium exhaust system.” John Edwards, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.
The F-TYPE SVR includes significant design and aerodynamic development to deliver the ultimate F-TYPE. Enhancements are carried out to the front of the car, altering its appearance and lending it a more track focused and assertive look, and at the rear with an aggressive active aerodynamic spoiler and new diffuser.
The F-TYPE SVR features a new front bumper with enlarged air intakes and the hood features larger louvers that not only evoke Jaguar’s rich sporting history but also uses the flow of air over the hood to help extract more hot air from the engine compartment.
The unique side fender vents reduce the high pressure in the wheel arch area which helps smooth airflow and reduce front end lift. The drag reduction allows the car to achieve 200mph while the lift reduction improves the vehicle’s dynamic behavior and cornering speeds.
In order to balance the front and rear lift, the F-TYPE SVR features a unique active aerodynamic carbon fiber rear spoiler. The SVR spoiler is elevated and wider than the standard F-TYPE R deployable spoiler, enabling it to act over the whole width of the car rather than just the width of the trunk lid. The spoiler operates in in two different modes: Low Drag Position: For maximum top speed, the wing is stowed, it works in conjunction with the front spoiler and other aero enhancements to bring a drag coefficient reduction of 7.5% and lift coefficient reduction of 15%. Deployed: For maximum down force and dynamic driving, the spoiler is deployed giving a drag coefficient Cd reduction of 2.5% and significant lift coefficient of 45%.
V-Max Mode: in order to achieve 200mph drivers must consciously prepare their SVR. This ensures the car is set up correctly to achieve this speed and ensures the driver is conscious of their actions. To activate V-MAX mode, driver selects Dynamic Mode and then presses the active rear spoiler switch for longer than 3 seconds. A message is displayed on the cluster stating “V-MAX mode confirmed“. A permanent symbol appears on the cluster whilst V-MAX mode is active. (V-MAX mode cannot be selected above 60mph.)
The interior has been developed with an elegant attention to detail. The SVR Performance seats are covered in premium leather, and exclusive to the F-TYPE SVR is the Lozenge quilting inspired by the Jaguar Lozenge Graphic associated with Jaguars racing history.
The backrest is embossed with the SVR logo. The new SVR branded steering wheel is available in Jet leather with four contrasting stitch colors (which harmonize with interior options).
Standard center console is finished in Dark Brushed Aluminum and features SVR branding.
A Carbon Fiber center console is also available at an additional cost.
The F-TYPE SVR is the first Jaguar to wear the SVR badge.
The badge is applied to the front grille and rear of the car. In addition, SVR branding is also discretely found on the titanium exhaust pipe tips and on the wheels. SVR branding is also present in the interior: on the headrests, steering wheel and center console.
There are seven color choices for SVR exterior comprised of one ‘solid’ and six ‘metallic’ options.
The launch color for Coupe will be Firesand Orange and for Convertible will be Ammonite Grey.
Coming to Jaguar Dallas and Jaguar Plano this summer.
