Say hello to the most powerful, most dramatic, and fastest road-going F-Type currently offered in the showroom range. It looks fast, because it is fast. Very fast. With all-wheel drive, Jaguar is billing it as an “all-weather supercar”. Do we agree? Read on to find out.
The SVR sits at the peak of the product range in the current F-Type family. It showcases a wild aero kit with front and rear spoilers, not seen on any other F-Type, while the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine is massaged to produce a colossal 423kW of power and 700Nm of meaty, tarmac-tugging torque. All of this is channelled through an all-wheel drive system – there’s no rear-drive option.
You can take your SVR in suave coupe form or sultry drop-top convertible form, with the latter being the most expensive. Prices start at $290,512 for the coupe, and from $309,212 for the convertible as tested here (all excluding on-roads).
