Jaguar is renowned car maker, from the engineering to the design Jaguars are impeccable, they have a blend of luxury and performance that other cars rarely do, I remember since childhood ive been a fan of Jags from the E type to the F- type their cars have always fascinated me.

Now Jaguar has come out with the extreme version of their F- type . The F-Type SVR is the stylish sports car in its most extreme form. The F-Type SVR is the work of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations, or SVO, the company’s in-house workshop tasked with developing its ultra-luxury or high-performance cars and oh boy what a job they have done. For thisĀ edition, Jag’s Skunk Works pumped up the F-Type’s 5.0-liter supercharged V8 with an extra 25 horsepower to push its rating to 575 horsepower. The SVR also gets enlarged air intakes, revised charge air coolers, and an Inconel titanium exhaust system that reduces back pressure and cuts 35 pounds from the car. Further, Jaguar optimized the SVR’s aerodynamics with a redesigned front bumper, splitter, new under-body, rear venturi tunnels, and an active carbon-fiber rear spoiler. With the use of carbon body panels and the carbon ceramic matrix brakes, the SVR can be as much as 11o pounds lighter than the regular F-Type.

All this performance comes at a price. The 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR starts at $125,950. Our option-laden test car came in at more than $145,000.

Although it’s far from cheap, the F-Type SVR offers true supercar performance with grand-touring comfort and British style at a sub-supercar price.

 

But for me, the SVR keeps the Jaguar F-Type as one of truly great sports cars money can buy.
