Knowing that your SUV can handle some of the most challenging racetracks on earth is pretty impressive. Knowing that Mercedes and Porsche’s owners are watching, and listening, in awe when you accelerate past them is fabulously exhilarating. The F-PACE became the first member of the Jaguar PACE family to be given the SVR treatment. With its great combination of a 550hp 5.0-liter Supercharged V8 engine, updated suspension and specially tuned EPAS system that delivers the most thrilling driving experience of any performance SUV yet. The Bespoke exterior enhancements initially catch your eye while delivering a more muscular design complete with additional dynamic benefits, and performance-focused design upgrades continue inside.
Developed and engineered by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), the SVR is the all-purpose performance SUV that purposely designed to command the envy to all that hear the distinct SVR exhaust note. Back in 2017 the F-Pace was the World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year, as well as being the best-selling model in the Jaguar line-up. So successful that it brought in new customers from Audi to Lexus and Mercedes-Benz to name a few. With all this notoriety the F-PACE was a natural choice to receive SVR upgrades.
The performance enhancements made to create the F-PACE SVR make it the fastest and most powerful F-PACE yet. Boasting an enhanced chassis, improved aerodynamics and 170 more horsepower than the current range-topping F-PACE S, the F-PACE SVR is built for maximum driver reward in every condition possible from track to gravel.
British built, in the style of Savile Row, for pure speed and engineered by Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 found in the F-PACE SVR produces 550hp that will push it from 0-60mph with a top speed of 176mph.“The F-PACE SVR delivers the handling and agility to match its performance,” said Mike Cross, Chief Engineer of Vehicle Integrity at Jaguar Land Rover. “Everything from the steering to the bespoke suspension set-up has been tuned specifically for our performance SUV and the result is a vehicle that lives up to the promise of both the F-PACE and SVR names.”
On looking at this F-Pace with its multiple enhancements that include larger air intakes at the front and side fender vents that lower pressure in the wheel arches, reducing lift and providing additional cooling while also assisting with high-speed stability you know you are looking at something more special than the one you saw in the Whole Foods Parking lot. Also, unique wheel arch extensions and lower body moldings provide a low-slung muscularity that sets the SVR apart from others. It is the exclusive SVR hood featuring vents to help extract hot air from the engine bay, which also gives visual evidence of the car’s dynamic intent. In the rear a unique spoiler with a new bumper housing the Active Exhaust system’s quad tailpipes announces boldness. The bumper incorporates side strakes designed to aid aerodynamic performance by smoothing airflow away from the rear of the vehicle. Once inside the feel of a sports car comes alive with slimline performance front seats that provide lateral support and have the signature Jaguar logo quilting and embossed SVR logo.
In addition, unique rear seats echo the heavily sculpted designs of the seats up front, while a SportShift Gear Selector like underlines the SUV’s sports car character, which is found in the F-TYPE sports car. Finally, the SVR branded steering wheel is enhanced with tactile aluminum paddle shifters. The F-Pace SVR is refined with the essential tenants of fine British design and flashy, and fast when you want it to be. Jaguar F-Pace SVR.
