Jaguar Land Rover India has started the bookings for the 2018 F-Type SVR in the country. Being the British luxury marque's fastest production car ever, the 2018 Jaguar F-Type is priced at Rs 2.65 Crores (Ex. Showroom, India). It is developed by the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) team at Jaguar Land Rover. The F-Type SVR is available in both Coupe and Convertible forms. The high-performance model is powered by the 5.0L V8 supercharged engine which develops top power of 567bhp and peak torque of 700Nm, while doing a 0-100kmph sprint in just 3.7 seconds before topping out at 322kmph.
Rohit Suri, President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd. (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.” Lightweighting has been achieved by the use of Titanium and Inconel exhaust system that saves 16 kg, while adding muscle to the roar of the F-TYPE. Forged 20-inch alloy wheels save a further 13.8 kg, while the use of a new, larger rear bearing enables an increased stiffness of up to 37 percent higher than the conventional F-TYPE rear knuckles.
The interiors of the car feature SVR performance seats that offer lateral support during dynamic driving. This attribute is coupled with an option of cooling. Moreover, the lightweight Magnesium construction of the seats saves an incredible 8 kg of weight when compared with the previous generation models. Jaguar F-TYPE SVR’s V-MAX mode allows the driver to achieve astonishing speeds with minimum drag, while Wider Pirelli P-Zero tyres – 10 mm wider than standard F-TYPE tyres – offers improved grip and handling. The high-performance model offers luxurious aesthetics and driver-focused performance, while retaining the comfort and daily utility provisions, atypical of all Jaguar cars.
