Is there any way to make a Jaguar F-type any more interesting? apparently someone can. SVR, the tuning division for Land Rover, Range Rover and Jaguar, has the answer for that question, and it is definitely a HELL YES!!

Due to massive leakage for test spyshots, Jaguar decided to reveal the F-type SVR earlier than predicted in the NAIAS 2016, And what a machine it is : more powerful, faster and with a better exhaust note compared to the regular F-type.

The F-type was powered by a supercharged 5.0L V8 engine, with a 550 bhp. The SVR edition is more powerful, it produces 575 bhp from its supercharged 5.0 V8 engine, and 700 Nm of torque going to the four wheels. It comes with a 8-speed automatic, goes from stop to 100 kph in four tenth o a second faster than the regular F-type, which is in just 3.7 seconds, and reaches 194 mph (312 kph) as a top speed. The car gets all the gases out via a lighter (26 pounds lighter) Titanium exhaust. It is fitted with larger air intakes, a larger nose with larger splitter and more air vents, all that allows the engine to have more air to produce more power and get better cooling. In the rear, aerodynamic stability is guaranteed with the use of a large rear diffuser, for a better air channeling under the car, and a large rear wing. Careful guys, don’t let it fly!!
