Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division creates cars that are the ultimate expression of Jaguar: stunning performance, exceptional luxury and cutting-edge technology. The latest creation to come from SVO’s state of the art Technical Center is the F‑TYPE SVR – the most powerful F‑TYPE ever.
The 5.0-liter V8 unit’s twin vortex supercharger reduces drag and surge for responsive performance. Hold tight – it will take you from 0‑60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 200 mph in convertible form.
EVERY DETAIL DELIVERS
Discover the ultimate F‑TYPE. The SVR is lighter and faster — with reconfigured aerodynamics boosting grip and Intuitive All Wheel Drive technology ensuring maximum traction at all times. Every inch optimized for pulse-racing performance that is pure Jaguar.
From quilted performance seats offering comfort and support to ultramodern finishes that create a sense of total luxury, the interior of the F‑TYPE SVR is truly one of a kind.
Weight is the enemy of performance. So we designed the SVR to be as lean as possible. Its lightweight Titanium and Inconel® exhaust system saves significant weight, while the striking 20‑inch forged alloy wheels provide a 30 lb weight reduction over standard F‑TYPE wheels. Each redesigned rear suspension knuckle is lighter than conventional knuckles and the optional Carbon Ceramic Matrix Braking system saves 46 lbs of unsprung weight over the standard F‑TYPE. Every pound saved gives you more rapid acceleration, more agile handling and sharper braking.
Navigation guidance makes planning journeys and following routes easy, thanks to turn-by-turn voice guidance and junction view. ‘Dead-reckoning’ functionality can accurately position the vehicle even when GPS signals can no longer be received – perfect for the city center or driving through tunnels.
Standard in every F‑TYPE, next-generation Touch Pro hardware and software advances connectivity and entertainment to the very highest level. Incredibly responsive with a highly intuitive user interface and sharp graphics, it makes every journey easier and more enjoyable.
Designed with British audio experts Meridian, a standard 380W Sound System brings your music to life. With 10 speakers including 2 subwoofers, this system tailors your audio to the unique acoustics of the F‑TYPE interior using Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and advanced Cabin Correction algorithms.
Make your F‑TYPE uniquely yours. Select the body and roof colors — and the wheels to complement them. Tailor your personal interior styling, specifying your ideal seats, textures and color combinations. And with our exceptional collection of options, style packs and accessories, your F‑TYPE becomes truly bespoke.
