[dropcap]J[/dropcap]aguar on Friday digitally revealed the F-TYPE SVR, an even more extreme version of the already popular sports car and its first to wear the high-performance SVR badge, ahead of its auto show debut in Geneva on March 1.
Developed to exploit the lightweight aluminum sports car’s full potential while retaining its inherent tractability and day-to-day usability, the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR will sprint to 95 km/h in just 3.5 seconds2 and, in coupe trim, joins an elite club of cars capable of accelerating to 300 km/h.
By exploiting the fundamental capability engineered in to the F-TYPE from day one, the Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division developed the brand’s lightest, quickest, most powerful F-TYPE and its fastest and most powerful series production road car ever with functional enhancements to the chassis, driveline and aerodynamics.
The F-TYPE R is already widely recognized in the sports car segment and represented the starting point for development of the more extreme F-TYPE SVR. Everything which contributes to the vehicle’s performance and handling dynamics has been meticulously re-evaluated, re-engineered and optimized by SVO, adding an even higher performance version of the F-TYPE to 2017 model year line up.
