More effective, lighter, and making the most of an more advantageous chassis and driveline and lively aerodynamics, the all-wheel power Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupé and Convertible supply supercar overall performance - in all conditions - and unrivalled driving force engagement and reward.

"The purity of the F-Type's shape is some thing surely special, however in designing the brand new F-Type SVR we had the possibility to create some thing even greater dramatic. Every extra shape, line or thing is there for a reason, and contributes to the auto's improved overall performance in addition to its presence. Cutting-aspect aerodynamics have usually been essential to Jaguar layout, and the whole lot from the enlarged air intakes to the lively rear wing is vital to the brand new Jaguar F-Type SVR's dramatic seems and 200mph capacity." Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar

Raising the output of Jaguar's supercharged five.0-litre V8 to 575PS and 700Nm allows the F-Type SVR to boost up from 0-60mph in only 3.five seconds. Maximum velocity of the Coupé version is 200mph, the Convertible 195mph.

The F-Type R is already a benchmark withinside the sports activities automobile phase however this version represented the start line for improvement of the F-Type SVR. Everything which contributes to overall performance and automobile dynamics has been meticulously re-evaluated, re-engineered and optimised nonetheless similarly.

By exploiting the essential functionality engineered in to the F-Type from day one, Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations department has advanced Jaguar's quickest and maximum effective collection manufacturing street automobile.

"Our goal become to take the whole lot that our clients love approximately F-Type - the overall performance, the managing, the sound, the layout - and take it to an entire new stage. This is what the brand new Jaguar F-Type SVR provides: it is a 200mph all-climate supercar. With 575PS, much less weight, an uprated chassis and bespoke calibrations for the transmission and all-wheel power gadget, overall performance is even greater available and exploitable. This is a automobile that SVO has advanced for actual fanatics however it is one which may be loved each day." John Edwards, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations

Ultimate overall performance: Supercharged V8 with 575PS

The Jaguar F-Type SVR capabilities the ultra-modern evolution of Jaguar's five.0-litre supercharged V8 to supply the remaining in overall performance and driving force reward. Changes to the engine's calibration - followed from the F-Type Project 7 - supply electricity and torque scores of 575PS and 700Nm.

Enlarged air intakes withinside the the front bumper collectively with revised rate air coolers and redesigned bonnet vents supply corresponding upgrades in cooling gadget overall performance and powertrain efficiency.

The new light-weight titanium and Inconel exhaust gadget can resist better top temperatures, reduces backpressure and saves 16kg - a weight loss which exceeds the traumatic goal set at some point of improvement. Compared to the F-Type R's stainless-steel gadget, Inconel's improved thermal resistance intended that wall thickness can be halved to simply 0.6mm.

The new gadget additionally provides a good greater distinct, purposeful, harder-edged exhaust note, in particular as soon as the lively valves withinside the rear silencers open - this occurs at decrease engine speeds to beautify the F-Type SVR's overall performance individual nonetheless similarly. Even the valves themselves are crafted from titanium due to the fact that is the remaining light-weight solution. The 4 spherical tailpipes are prominent through discreet SVR branding.

To make the maximum of the improved engine output, the eight-velocity Quickshift transmission profits a brand new calibration. Together with the greater grip added through the wider, 265- and 305-phase the front and rear tyres (10mm wider than the F-Type R), and optimising the torque on-call for all-wheel power gadget's Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) manage technology, this provides the Jaguar F-Type SVR's incredible release behaviour and immediacy of response.

The modifications to IDD and refinements to the rear digital lively differential (EAD) make sure premiere torque distribution among the the front and rear axles and throughout the rear axle. Combined with a completely unique calibration for the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) gadget, this complements traction and dynamics - on all surfaces and in all weathers - whilst keeping the F-Type SVR's rear-wheel power individual and managing balance.

Selecting Dynamic mode will allow the fanatic driving force to completely discover the F-Type SVR's functionality, in particular with the DSC gadget set to TracDSC or switched off absolutely. Under those conditions, IDD will use the maximum severe calibrations for the AWD gadget and for the EAD to completely make the most the to be had grip.

The profits in overall performance and driveability do now no longer come on the cost of gasoline intake and CO2 emissions: in comparison to the F-Type R, the figures at the European mixed cycle continue to be unchanged at 25mpg and 269g/km respectively.

Light, stiff, specific

The upgrades made to the powertrain and driveline are matched through the adjustments made to the chassis. Designed to take the SVR's dynamic functionality to the following stage, and supply remaining chassis agility, precision, manage and response, the modifications although hold the F-Type's experience excellent and inherent duality of individual - everyday usability and luxury have now no longer been compromised.

The F-Type's aluminium double wishbone the front and rear suspension and brand new electric powered electricity-assisted steerage (EPAS) gadget gave the SVO crew the nice viable start line for growing the SVR's automobile dynamics.

That the automobile is 25kg lighter as fashionable than the AWD F-Type R - and 50kg lighter with alternatives along with the Carbon Ceramic Matrix brake gadget and carbon fibre roof - brings on the spot blessings in phrases of managing. Optimised aerodynamics produce similarly profits: the rear wing provides discounts in elevate whether or not withinside the raised or decreased position.

These essential upgrades are matched through a raft of different hardware and software program modifications designed to extract the entire capacity from each a part of the chassis. The rear anti-roll bar is thicker. The valves in the continuously-variable dampers were revised and the manage software program - the coronary heart of Jaguar's Adaptive Dynamics gadget - has been recalibrated. The standard impact is that each low velocity consolation and excessive velocity manage are improved.

The rear knuckle is absolutely new. Now an intricate, weight-optimised aluminium die casting, the layout of the component allows a 37 in line with cent boom in camber stiffness and a forty one in line with cent boom in toe stiffness, which interprets into more manage of the tyre touch patch and a good greater linked steerage experience.

The the front anti-roll bar diameter has been decreased slightly. Together with the revised damper manage software program, a completely unique song for the Torque Vectoring gadget which allows even greater specific manage of the braking implemented to the internal wheels, the modifications mitigate understeer - even at excessive nook access speeds.

Fitted as fashionable with Jaguar's Super Performance braking gadget presenting large, 380mm and 376mm the front and rear brake discs, the Jaguar F-Type SVR may be distinct with Jaguar's Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) braking gadget. Featuring even large 398mm and 380mm discs and six- and 4-piston monobloc calipers, this gadget provides exquisite braking overall performance with incredible fade resistance. The brake prefill gadget guarantees regular pedal experience, forestall after forestall.

The wider, specially-advanced 265/35/ZR20 and 305/30/ZR20 tyres offer exquisite ranges of grip and not using a detriment to experience excellent or refinement. The variety of 9J and 11J solid aluminium wheels supply financial savings of as much as 13.8kg in line with automobile - some other weight loss which beat the improvement goal - and the open spoke layout additionally improves brake cooling. Exclusive to the F-Type SVR, the variety incorporates Coriolis wheels in Satin Technical Grey or Gloss Black, and - for fashions outfitted with the CCM braking gadget - Maelstrom wheels with a Satin Black polished finish.

The F-Type's EPAS gadget already units the benchmark for experience and response - in particular off-centre. Further tuning of the manage software program provides even higher comments and, mixed with the stiffer rear knuckle assembly, the brand new wheels and tyres and the revised damper settings, method that the F-Type SVR steers with even more immediacy and precision.


The attempt made in growing the chassis become matched through the paintings performed at the Jaguar F-Type SVR's aerodynamics. Asked to remedy the frequently conflicting necessities of lowering drag and lowering elevate, the SVO crew designed a complete suite of capabilities which paintings collectively to enhance dynamics, stability, overall performance and efficiency.

To reduce drag, the the front bumper become prolonged outboard to masks as tons of the wheels as viable. This additionally allows the airflow to stay connected to the perimeters of the auto, lowering drag nonetheless similarly.

The the front valance and the front undertray additionally make contributions to tug discount however do tons greater to enhance engine cooling. The louvre layout of the brand new bonnet vents makes use of the float of air over the bonnet to extract greater warm air from the engine compartment.

Apertures withinside the wheelarch liners assist the excessive strain air to get away via the fender vents, assisting to lessen the front-stop elevate.

An under-ground tray under the rear suspension quickens the airflow, lowering strain and consequently lowering elevate. Aerodynamics are similarly more advantageous through the rear venturi. Integrating this option become simplest viable due to the layout of the light-weight titanium and Inconel exhaust gadget: the use of person rear silencers rather than a unmarried transverse silencer enabled the venturi to be well packaged among them.

But the unmarried only tool advanced for the F-Type SVR is its deployable rear wing: the exceedingly optimised layout is greater powerful and greater aerodynamically-green in each raised and decreased and positions.

With the auto in Normal mode, the wing deploys as soon as automobile velocity reaches 60mph and 70mph for the Convertible and Coupé respectively. The wing will even installation mechanically every time the driving force selects Dynamic mode. In this raised position, the wing, collectively with the opposite aerodynamic upgrades, allows a discount withinside the F-Type SVR's drag and raise coefficients of 2.five in line with cent and 15 in line with cent respectively in comparison to the F-Type R with spoiler deployed. When the SVR's wing is withinside the decreased position, the corresponding upgrades are 7.five in line with cent and forty five in line with cent.

Exterior layout alternatives to supplement the carbon fibre rear wing encompass a carbon fibre roof panel and a carbon fibre % comprising the the front chin phase, bonnet louvres, fender vent ingots and door replicate caps.


The Jaguar F-Type SVR's overall performance does now no longer come on the cost of consolation. The cabin profits cosseting 14-manner SVR Performance seats completed in Jet black leather-based with a distinct Lozenge Quilt pattern, assessment sewing and micro-piping and headrests embossed with the SVR logo. Customers additionally have the choice of Siena Tan or Red leather-based.

The SVR Jet black leather-based and non-obligatory Jet black leather-based and suedecloth steerage wheels characteristic black painted spoke outers and assessment sewing in a number 4 colours. The precise anodised aluminium shift paddles are large than the ones in different F-Type fashions to make converting equipment even greater instinctive.

The driving force-centered subject matter of the 'one-plus-one' format is more advantageous with a suedecloth masking for the device cluster and centre console. Customers who choose the non-obligatory Siena Tan or Red leather-based interiors gain from complete leather-based wrapping of the device panel.

The InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus infotainment structures characteristic eight-inch capacitive touchscreens, intuitive person interfaces and crisp, clean 3-D map presentations and provide 380W Meridian and 770W Meridian surround sound audio structures respectively.

As properly because the acquainted InControl Apps phone connectivity, InControl Secure automobile tracking and InControl Protect emergency name gadget, the Jaguar F-Type SVR additionally gives the ultra-modern InControl Remote functionality, which - for the remaining in convenience - now helps wearable technology.

Partnering the InControl Remote app for iOS smartphones is a associate app advanced for the Apple Watch. Using this tool, drivers can lock and release the doors, take a look at key statistics together with gasoline stage or mileage, and discover the auto on a map. InControl Remote even allows the driving force to begin the engine and set the weather manage gadget temperature to pre-circumstance the cabin earlier than the begin of a journey. Nothing can be simpler.
