The Jaguar F-Type SVR comes with a 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine that dishes out a power of 575 BHP and 700Nm peak torque. Jaguar has tuned the engine which has resulted in an increase in power by 25BHP and raised torque by 20Nm in comparison to the F-Type R model.
The engine comes with a 8-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive system with Electronic Active Differential that increases traction and stability.
This allows the F-Type SVR Coupe achieve 0-100kmph in 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 322 kmph. The Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible can achieve 0-100kmph in 3.7 seconds, with a top speed of 314 kmph.
The difference in the top speed of the two cars is due to the weight difference. The Coupe weighs slightly heavier at 1,705 kg, while the Convertible weighs about 1,702 kg.
The cars also get a carbon fibre rear aerodynamic wing, SVR performance seats and heated SVR leather steering wheel with aluminum gearshift paddles.
Besides this, the car also has navigation Pro, Electric Power Assisted Steering (EPAS), Touch Pro for entertainment with Meridian 380 W Sound System and 10 speakers, and has Torque Vectoring that helps the car maneuver in tight corners.
