The Jaguar F-Type SVR is the British automaker’s fastest series production vehicle yet.
Officially unveiled ahead of its public debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, the F-Type SVR is Jaguar’s first Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) model and does the zero-to-60 mph sprint in just 3.5 seconds on its way to a top speed of 200 mph. Priced from $126,945 including destination for the coupe and $129,795 for the convertible, the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR will arrive starting this summer.
Under the hood stars a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that has been recalibrated to deliver 575 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. Helping improve the sports car’s cooling system are revised charge air coolers and redesigned hood vents as well as enlarged air intakes in the front bumper. Fitted as standard is a lightweight Inconel titanium exhaust system that also helps get rid of 35 pounds of mass from the vehicle compared to the F-Type R.

With no optional equipment, the F-Type SVR weighs in 55 lbs lighter than the all-wheel-drive F-Type R, but can be as much as 110 lbs lighter when equipped with options like Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes and a carbon fiber roof.
The 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR will come standard with 20-inch wheels paired to 265/35/ZR20 (front) and 305/30/ZR20 (rear) Pirelli P Zero tires.
On the inside, Jaguar has outfitted the model with cosseting 14-way SVR performance seats finished in Jet leather with a distinctive Lozenge Quilt pattern, contrast stitching and micro-piping and headrests embossed with the SVR logo. Customers also have the option of Siena Tan or red leather upholstery.
