A high-performance Jaguar F-Pace is in development.
The British automaker’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division is looking to hunt down the BMW X5 M and Mercedes-AMG SUVs with a high-powered F-Pace with a supercharged V8 engine churning over 500 horsepower. According to Car and Driver, Jaguar already has prototypes testing in the real world and the high-performance F-Pace could head to market as soon as 2017.
That’s not all, as SVO is also testing the supercharged V8 engine under the hood of the Jaguar XE sedan, giving the British automaker a competitor to the popular BMW M3, Cadillac ATS-V and Mercedes-AMG C63 models. There is no final decision yet on a high-performance Jaguar XE offering, as the brand would contradict its own strategy for electrification with a high-powered V8.
There is no denying the demand for high-performance sedans in the luxury space and considering how attractive the Jaguar F-Type SVR is, the F-Pace model should be good looking.
