The 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR, the fastest production car ever created by the British automaker, made its public debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
As if the regular F-Type R wasn’t crazy enough, Jaguar’s SVR version ramps the performance up even more. The supercharged 5.0-liter V8 has been tweaked for more power, putting out 575 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. That’s a 25 hp and 12 lb-ft of torque increase over the R version. An eight-speed transmission sends that power to all four wheels.
The SVR is also 55 pounds lighter than the R, but the weight can be cut even further to be 110 lbs lighter more with carbon ceramic brakes and a carbon fiber roof. With all those weight savings, the SVR can get from rest to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 200 mph. The R does the sprint in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 186 mph, so the F-Type SVR does give you an extra performance edge, even though most drivers will never really push the car that far.

The bodywork has also been tweaked to maximize downforce, optimize aerodynamics and increase grip, while new hood vents and bigger air intakes will help keep the car cool. The SVR gets lighter 20-inch alloy wheels, an active carbon fiber spoiler, a lightweight titanium exhaust system and a unique interior.
The 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR will arrive starting this summer with pricing starting at $126,945 including destination for the coupe and $129,795 for the convertible in the U.S.
