Jaguar Land Rover India Limited (JLRIL) today announced the commencement of bookings of Jaguar F-TYPE SVR – its fastest production car ever. Developed by JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) team, the car’s performance has been maximised by optimising most of its components inside-out.
At the heart, producing 570 hp of maximum power, the car receives a powerful 5-litre supercharged V8 engine and hits a peak torque of 700 Nm. Thrusting from 0-100 km/h in just 3.7 s the sheer-power machine climbs to a top speed of 322 km/h. The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is available in Coupe and Convertible variants.
To complement high-performance, the car has shed some kilos off its chassis and from the interior components too. The two-door car’s cabin features SVR performance seats that are coupled with an option of cooling, thereby making the overall driving experience reminiscent. As an add-on, the lightweight Magnesium construction of the seats cuts down a chunky 8 kilos against the preceding models.
On the outside, the Titanium and Inconel exhaust system loses 16 kgs while enhancing the F-TYPE SVR’s grunt. Interestingly, the company also claims to have reduced by about 14 kgs more by using the Forged 20-inch alloy wheels. However, the shedding of weight might scare one to take-off with the car off the road. This is saved by the Pirelli P-Zero tyres that are 10 mm wider than standard F-Type tyres for increased grip and handling.
Speaking on the announcement, Rohit Suri, President & MD of JLRIL, said, “The new F-TYPE SVR is the first Jaguar car to have been developed by the Special Vehicle Operations. Their ideas of precision engineering reflect brilliantly in each aspect of the car. Be it design, performance or comfort; sports car enthusiasts will experience all these features when behind the wheel of the new F-TYPE SVR.”
