A brochure for the new Jaguar F-Type SVR has leaked ahead of the sports car’s official debut.
Powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, the hotter F-Type SVR will sport 567 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque, according to the brochure, although U.S. specifications could vary slightly. But based on those figures, that means the SVR model will have 25 hp and 14 lb-ft of torque more than the Jaguar F-Type R. It will only be available with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, with the coupe sporting a top speed of 200 mph while the convertible can get up to 194 mph. All that power is good for a zero-to-62 mph time of 3.7 seconds.
As expected, the F-Type SVR gets much more aggressive styling, with the front end sporting larger air intakes and slats behind the front wheels to usher more cool air to the brakes. In the back is a stylish spoiler and a larger diffuser. Options for the SVR include carbon ceramic brakes that shed 46 pounds compared to the standard units, while a titanium exhaust is 26 lbs lighter and likely makes the SVR sound even more aggressive.
We have seen the F-Type SVR coupe and convertible models spied testing and it’s just a matter of time before the British automaker formally announces the model. Although pricing hasn’t been revealed, expect it to demand a premium over the current F-Type R coupe’s $104,595 (including destination) and the convertible’s $107,445.
