A few months ago we reported that Jaguar was working on an even more sporting version of the beloved F-Type, and now we have spy shots of a prototype for the high-performance feline. A camouflaged mule for the upcoming Jaguar F-Type SVR has been spotted near Germany’s Nürburgring.
The new Jaguar F-Type SVR’s supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 is expected to make more than 600 hp. That’s more than the F-Type R and open-top F-Type Project 7, which make 550 hp and 575 hp, respectively. Although not confirmed, we expect the F-Type SVR to gain the all-wheel drive system introduced for the 2016 F-Type R.
With the added power comes a more aggressive body. Cosmetic upgrades to the Jaguar F-Type SVR include a deeper front spoiler with larger air intakes, a large decklid spoiler similar to the one on the Project 7, and a more prominent rear diffuser. We expect the F-Type’s optional carbon ceramic rotors to be standard on the SVR as well as a sportier suspension tune. The interior is also expected to receive sportier upgrades for SVR duty.
While only the coupe has been spotted, Jaguar is said to be working on a roadster variant of the F-Type SVR as well. Check out images of the Jaguar F-Type SVR coupe prototype below.
