Video - Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupe at the Nurburgring

Snapshot: To sit on top of the F-Type range with more than 600 bhp.

Tata Motors-owner Jaguar is currently undergoing additional Nürburgring track testing of the F-Type SVR Coupe which will be out sometime next year. The range-topping model of the F-Type lineup is being developed by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) and aims to be an improvement in just about every way compared to the current F-Type R Coupe flagship version.

It is believed this new even hotter iteration of the F-Type will be offered exclusively with an all-wheel drive arrangement and only with an 8-speed Quickshift automatic transmission, so those who were hoping to see a rear-wheel drive machine with a manual gearbox are out of luck. For the others, expect to see a beefier configuration of the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine which according to sources close to Jaguar will unleash in excess of 600 bhp.

As far as the design is concerned, the F-Type SVR Coupe will adopt a more aggressive body influenced by the Project 7 limited edition and will come with large front air vents and a prominent rear wing. It will also have beefier brakes, bespoke lightweight alloy wheels along with tweaked bumpers while the interior cabin is also set to go through some changes to denote this is the F-Type’s new crown jewel.

There’s no word on performances just yet, but rest assure it will be quicker than the all-wheel drive F-Type R Coupe which covers the 0-100 kmph run in 4.1 seconds and achieves an electronically-governed top speed of 300 kmph.

We’ve been talking about the coupe only, but Jaguar also has plans to introduce an F-Type SVR Convertible and both of them are expected to receive their world premiere in March 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show, with sales to commence in the second half of the year at prices significantly higher than the equivalent R version.
