The Jaguar F-Type is one of the most beautiful machines to have graced the roads in recent times. The Special Vehicle Operations division of the British car maker decided to give a touch of madness to the sports coupe. The Jaguar F-Type SVR was revealed internationally at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year and it is expected to reach the Indian shores by the end of this year.
The F-Type SVR is powered by the same 5.0-litre supercharged V8 from the F-Type R. The old-school V8 has been tuned up and now delivers a whopping 567bhp of power instead of the 543 in the F-Type R. With the torque up to 700Nm and with power delivered through all four wheels, the SVR hits 100kmph from stand still in just 3.5 seconds. The F-Type SVR goes on to hit a top whack of 200mph (320+ kmph).
Apart from the upgraded engine, it gets a reworked front bumper and splitter, flat underbelly, and a carbon fibre active rear wing for improved aerodynamics. The exhaust is made of titanium alloy and sounds madder than ever before. The suspension has been tweaked and strengthened, the alloy wheels have shed weight while the tyres have grown wider to cope with the added power and speed. The all-wheel-drive system gets torque vectoring with stability control. The eight speed gearbox has also been tweaked.
Jaguar Land Rover India have said that they will get the SVR to India soon. But that may not probably be the first of the F-Types with AWD to hit the Indian shores. If you are in India and want to buy an F-Type AWD, you can order one at the Jaguar dealership and it should be at your doorstep in four months.
