Detailed Review

Anybody who knows about the Jaguar F-Type will tell you that it’s a hardcore car in itself. But, it wasn’t scintillating enough for Jaguar. They handed it over to the Special Vehicle Operations department to make it even more powerful and agile. Introducing, the 2018 Jaguar F-type SVR, the fastest production sports car.

Powering the car is a 5.0L supercharged V8, borrowed from the regular F-Type R but with a 25 hp bump. The engine now produces a numbing 575 hp and 516 lb-ft torque. The engine note that the car produces is a symphony of god, perhaps one of the best ever from a V8 engine.



Unlike the other F-Types, the SVR features an AWD only powertrain which delivers power to all the wheels creating abnormal cornering abilities. The interior of the car features a generous dose of carbon fiber as well, which further helps with weight reduction. With a price tag of $122,750, the F-Type SVR not only looks and sounds like a sports car, it costs like one too.
