Jaguar India has launched the F-Type SVR in India at Rs 2.65 crore, ex-showroom pan-India. The Jaguar F-Type SVR is available in both coupe as well as roadster forms. Prices for both the trims remain the same. While bookings for the car had already started last year, deliveries will begin in a few months time.
Jaguar says that the F-Type SVR is its fastest ever production car. The Jaguar F-Type SVR has been developed by the Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations team and it is said that the engineers over there have gone through each and every part of the donor car to make the former as performance oriented as possible. The Jaguar F-Type SVR boasts a 5.0-litre V8 motor that is supercharged to make 575PS of power and 700Nm of torque. 0-100kmph is achieved in just 3.7s while the top speed is 322kmph.
The bog standard F-Type as it is had quite an aerodynamic shape and the SVR takes it a notch ahead. Most of the parts have been replaced to ensure that car is as light as possible and in turn increases performance. The regular exhaust system has been ditched for a lighter one made of Inconel and titanium, saving around 16kg. Jaguar says that the F-Type SVR also sounds even more wicked because of this system. The Pirelli P-Zero tyres are 10mm wider than those of the donor car and aid immensely in achieving top speeds. The 20-inch new alloy wheels further save around 14kg of weight by using a forged component. Overall stiffness of the suspension has been achieved by using larger rear bearings.
