Bookings have commenced for the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR in India. Reported to be the fastest production car from Jaguar Land Rover, the F-TYPE SVR starts at Rs 2.65 crore, ex-showroom, India. Developed by the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) team at Jaguar Land Rover, the F-TYPE SVR is available in coupe and convertible variants. The new model is also stated to be lighter than its predecessor.
Mechanically, the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is powered by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine that generates 560bhp of power and 700Nm of torque. The car is capable of sprinting from 0-100kmph in just about 3.7 seconds and can attain a top speed of 322kmph. As compared to the standard F-TYPE tyres, the F-TYPE SVR gets about 10mm wider Pirelli P-Zero tyres that claims to offer improved grip and handling. The company has achieved weight reduction for the F-TYPE SVR with the use of Titanium and Inconel exhaust system that saves 16kgs. Forged 50.8 cm (20) alloy wheels save a further 13.8kgs, while the use of a new, larger rear bearing offers an increased stiffness of up to 37 per cent compared to the conventional F-TYPE rear knuckles.
Step inside and one will find SVR performance seats that offer lateral support during dynamic driving. The seats are offered with an optional cooling option. Moreover, the lightweight Magnesium construction of the seats saves an incredible eight kilogram of weight when compared to the previous generation models. The car is available across 27 outlets in the country.
Speaking on the occasion, Rohit Suri, President and Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd. (JLRIL), said, “The new F-TYPE SVR is the first Jaguar car to have been developed by the Special Vehicle Operations. Their ideas of precision engineering reflect brilliantly in each aspect of the car. Be it design, performance or comfort; sports car enthusiasts will experience all these features when behind the wheel of the new F-TYPE SVR.”
