The Jaguar F-Type SVR convertible has finally hit the track for testing.
Earlier this year, spy photographers caught a mule for the Jaguar F-Type SVR testing and now the British automaker has hit the track with a prototype model. This car features a more aggressive front end with large air intakes and a front air splitter while the rear gets a large, fixed spoiler and a sporty diffuser housing a quad-tip exhaust setup. Also visible behind the wheels are cross-drilled, carbon ceramic brakes paired to large yellow calipers for a race-inspired look.

Although it hasn’t been confirmed that Jaguar will give the SVR designation to the F-Type model, reports suggest that the automaker wants to move away from using the RS badge for top-of-the-line models. Considering Jaguar Land Rover is invested into pushing SVR as a performance sub-brand, it would only make sense that the hottest F-Type in the lineup sports an SVR badge.
As for power, the model will keep its 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, but expect its output to be increased to around 600 hp, a noticeable increase from the F-Type R’s 550 ponies.
