The New Jaguar F-TYPE SVR May Provide More than 600 HP
Jaguar is currently working with their Special Vehicle Operations unit to come up with an SVR variant of the F-TYPE. The car is expected to have around 600 HP and could possible even exceed that figure. That would be higher than anything Jaguar or Land Rover has ever offered to the public before. With the F-TYPE’s continual climb up from its base power offering of 335 HP it only makes sense that it would top out over the 600 HP mark with the S
Even at launch there was a 5.0 liter supercharged V8 option that provided 500 HP to buyers looking for a thrill. From there Jaguar went on to offer the F-TYPE R with 550 HP, then the Project 7 Roadster with 575 and it only makes sense for the F-TYPE SVR to take another step forward up to that 600 figure. Not only is that an unprecedented level of power to put into the compact F-TYPE, but it also gives buyers a large range of power levels to choose from.
Large Variety of Power Levels
The base F-TYPE offers just 335 HP, which is a decent amount for a car of its size. The release of all the other power editions of the vehicle offer plenty of variety to buyers. Whether you want the 335 or something closer to 600 HP there is an option that you can choose. For buyers who aren’t too familiar with different vehicle power levels it makes sense to test drive all the variants until you find one that you enjoy. With so much variety it’s possible to get exactly the right fit, which is a pretty cool feature in Jaguar’s latest offering.
Sticking it to Competitors
The SVR variant of the Jaguar F-TYPE comes with enough power to compete with most sporty vehicles out today. It’s expected to eclipse vehicles like the Porsche 911 Turbo S and the Mercedes-AMG GT S. It will even keep up with hyper cars like the Audi R8 V10 Plus and the Aston Martin Vantage GT12.
The only real question left to ask about the SVR other than the exact power level is what shape of
F-TYPE it’s going to be. Will it be a coupe or convertible and will it be all-wheel drive or rear-wheel. These are all details that have yet to be released, but will make a big difference in how well the car sells and who’s interested in it when the time comes.
