Jaguar to Build 200mph F-Type SVR, for When 186mph Just Isn’t Enough

Feeling the need, the need for speed?

If you’ve ever been driving the V8-powered 542bhp F-Type, but thought that the 186mph top speed just wasn’t quite enough for you, Jaguar has an answer…

Making its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March will be the Jaguar F-Type SVR, developed to exploit the two-seat aluminium sports car’s full potential while promising to retain its day-to-day usability.

Built by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, the lighter, faster and more powerful SVR model promises to be capable of 200mph and will be available in both coupe and convertible forms.

“The new F-Type SVR is the first series production Jaguar to be developed by Special Vehicle Operations and benefits from everything we know about precision engineering, performance and design,” explained John Edwards, managing director at Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations.

“The result is a 200mph, all-weather supercar that you can drive every day – we even made a Convertible version so that enthusiasts can revel in the sound from the new titanium exhaust system.”

Full specifications will be revealed in February, with the car on sale in the summer.
