Jaguar has finally unleashed the F-Type SVR online, ahead of its first public appearance at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show on March 1. The F-Type is the first Jaguar to wear the SVR badge. Jaguar F-Type SVR is available in both coupe and convertible modes, while priced at $125,950 (Around 86 Lakhs) and $128,800 (Around 88 Lakhs), respectively. It can be ordered now with deliveries expected to start from June 2016.
Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division developed the brand's lightest, quickest, most powerful F-TYPE and its fastest and most powerful series production road car ever with functional enhancements to the chassis, driveline and aerodynamics. Fitted as standard with the Super Performance braking system featuring large, 380mm and 376mm front and rear steel brake discs, the F-TYPE SVR can be specified with the Jaguar Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) braking system. Featuring even larger 398mm and 380mm discs and six- and four-piston monobloc calipers, the CCM system delivers exceptional braking performance.
Exclusive to the F-TYPE SVR, Coriolis wheels come standard in Satin Technical Grey and are optional in Gloss Black, and - for models fitted with the CCM braking system - Maelstrom wheels are available with a Satin Black polished finish. Just so you know, the single most effective device developed for the F-TYPE SVR is its deployable rear spoiler; the highly optimized design is both more effective and more aerodynamically-efficient in both raised and lowered positions. With the car in normal mode, the spoiler deploys once vehicle speed reaches 96kmph and 113kmph for the Convertible and Coupe respectively. The spoiler will also deploy automatically whenever the driver selects Dynamic mode.
Inside the cabin, the driver-focused theme of the 'one-plus-one' layout is enhanced with a suedecloth covering for the instrument cluster and center console, reminiscent of the F-TYPE concept CX-16. The cabin comprises of cosseting 14-way SVR performance seats finished in Jet leather with a distinctive Lozenge Quilt pattern, contrast stitching and micro-piping and headrests embossed with the SVR logo. Also, there is the 770W Meridian surround sound audio system, touch-screen navigation and infotainment6 with SiriusXM Satellite Radio & HD Radio as standard. The buyers also get Jaguar InControl Apps smartphone connectivity and Jaguar InControl Protect emergency and breakdown call system as optional feature.
Under the hood, the Jaguar F-Type SVR has the company's 5.0L supercharged V8 engine which develops 575bhp of top power and 700Nm of peak torque. The engine is linked to an 8-speed ZF Quickshift automatic transmission, which has been recalibrated to reduce shift times and increase torque availability during launch. The power is transferred to all the four wheels via the company's all-wheel-drive system. The F-Type SVR does a 0-100kmph sprint in just 3.6 seconds, while clocking an electronically limited top speed of 320kmph. For those asking, the F-Type SVR weighs in 25 kgs lighter than the AWD F-TYPE R, and as much as 50 kgs lighter with options such as the Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brake system and carbon fiber roof fitted.
