Big cat comes out to play: leaked brochure reveals 567bhp Jaguar F-type SVR

Published: 10 January 2016 Updated: 22 January 2016

► Flagship Jaguar F-type SVR revealed
► Powered by 567bhp V8; 0-62 in 3.7sec
► Offered in coupe and convertible forms

A Jaguar brochure, reputedly inadvertently published by a German importer, has revealed details of the upcoming F-type range flagship, the SVR.

It contains the first official details of the new F-type SVR, prepared by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division, including confirmation that it’ll pack four-wheel drive and an uprated version of the company’s supercharged 5.0-litre V8.

The SVR’s engine is quoted to produce 567bhp and 516lb ft, the same as the SVO-developed Project 7, granting the coupe and convertible a 0-62mph time of 3.7sec. Top speed? A fraction over 200mph, if you’ve bought the coupe, or 194mph for the convertible.

Standard kit includes SVR sports suspension with adaptive dampers, 20in wheels, an electronic active differential with torque vectoring, sports seats and an eight-speed automatic. Alas, no manual option here.

The F-type SVR also benefits from an aggressive aero kit and fixed rear wing. Several visual and aerodynamic elements from the Project 7, including the style of the rear diffuser, also feature on the range-topping Jaguar. 

According to the brochure, ‘F-type SVR has an advanced suspension, improved aerodynamics, lightweight construction technologies and a newly calibrated engine – and so raises the model range of the Jaguar F-type to a new, stunning level.’

Motoring site Autovisie uploaded the brochure, which you can read here.
