Jaguar F-Pace SVR

Jaguar shows the new top of the range F-Pace model at New York International Auto Show (NYIAS). Its name is SVR. This short term shows where the model comes from: The Special Vehicle Operations department of Jaguar Land Rover, responsible for the sportiest and most luxurious cars of the two brands. The SVO engineers worked on a stiffer sport chassis with stiffer coilrates and also layed their hands onto other technical parts.

A five litre supercharged V8 engine with 405 kW/550 PS and 680 newtonmeters of torque drives the car via an eight speed automatic from ZF and the permanent Torque-on-Demand all-wheel drive system. With all that power the F-Pace SVR accelerates from 0 to 62 mph in 4.3 seconds and is able to reach a topspeed of 176 mph. An electronically active differential at the rear axle helps while accelerating out of narrow corners.

Naturally the sporty SUV also gets extensive aerodynamic modifications with an own SVR kit. This contains new bumpers, wider sills and wheelarches and a roof spoiler with Gurney flap. Behind the wheels big outlets help to get the air out of the wheel wells. Next to the diffusor Jaguar integrated the exhaust tips of the active exhaust system made from titanium. The car stays on 21 inch forged wheels but can be ordered with 22 inch as well. Behind the wheels Jaguar uses a powerful brake system with 395 millimeters at the front and 396 millimeters at the back.

Driver and Codriver take seat on slim performance seats with leather upholstery and diamond stitching, which can be found on the newly formed rear seats as well. Embossed SVR logos can be found at the headrests. Customers can order from four different leather colors, all combined with colored stitching, aluminium and bare carbon.
