Jaguar F-type SVR confirmed for 2016 Geneva motor show

Published: 27 January 2016 Updated: 03 March 2016

► New F-type SVR unveiled at Geneva motor show
► Coupe and convertible offered; on sale in summer
► Feature 4wd and 567bhp supercharged 5.0-litre V8

Standard F-type R not quite punchy enough for you? Well, the new 567bhp F-type SVR – which was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva motor show – could be a more tempting option.

Coupe and convertible versions of the Jaguar will be offered and both benefit from more power than a standard F-type, SVR-specific suspension, a titanium exhaust system – like a Corvette C5 Z06 – and an aggressive aero kit.  

The new version of the F-type will go on sale in summer 2016.

Jaguar F-type SVR specifications

The SVR’s supercharged 5.0-litre V8 will produce 567bhp and 516lb ft. Either version will be capable of 0-62mph in 3.7sec and, in coupe form, the F-type SVR will hit 200mph. The convertible won’t be far behind, though, topping out at 194mph.

John Edwards, MD of Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations centre, said: ‘The new F-TYPE SVR is the first series production Jaguar to be developed by Special Vehicle Operations. The result is a 200mph, all-weather supercar.’

Previously, pictures and details of the SVR had been leaked following the reputed inadvertent publishing of an embargoed brochure by a German importer. We’ve also seen spy shots of the SVR, undergoing testing on public roads.
