200-mph Jaguar F-Type SVR Announced Ahead Of Geneva

Jaguar has now confirmed, ahead of its debut at the Geneva motor show, that the F-Type SVR, which will come in coupé and convertible forms, will have a 567 hp, 700 Nm, 5.0-litre supercharged V8 in the engine bay.

The new F-Type SVR also benefits from weight saving measures that have sliced 25kg off the vehicle in standard trim thanks in part to a new titanium exhaust system or upto 50kg when fitted with the optional carbon ceramic brake system or carbon fibre roof on the coupe. A new lightweight titanium and Inconel exhaust system reduces back-pressure and saves 16 kg. 5 of second quicker than before.

Thankfully, for those that like to keep their F-Type in one piece and not barrelling sideways into every second tree, the SVR is fitted with all-wheel drive, and it's a slightly modified version of the system that recently became an option on the R. Engineers also modified the electronic active diff at the back, optimising torque distribution between the front and rear and across the back axle.

The order book for the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is open now, with first deliveries expected in Australia from Q3 this year.

In addition to the weight loss, the SVR gains new rear knuckles with 37 percent more camber stiffness and 41 percent more toe stiffness, a thicker rear anti-roll bar, revised damper-control software, a reworked torque-vectoring system, a more powerful braking system, and massive 265- and 305-series tires on the front and rear, respectively.

Driver and passenger also enjoy several aesthetic upgrades, including 14-way power seats with Jet leather and an embossed SVR logo in the headrests, larger anodized-aluminum shift paddles, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. While the F-Type supercar is already quite capable, the arrival of the range-topping SVR badge delivers even more power. Suedecloth also covers the instrument cluster and center console. Other tweaks include adjustments to the transmission and AWD system.

Tech savvy owners can also use the InControl Remote app available for iOS in locking or unlocking the doors, check vital information like mileage and fuel level, and more.
