New F-PACE SVR is faster than ever





If a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, which produces 550 horsepower and achieves 0 to 60mph in under 4 seconds, is a bit too much to process maybe you should click off this page. If you have an inner hunger for the best in life and a top speed of 178 mph, and you find that excellence fosters your drive, sharpens your mind, and stimulates your psyche then the new Jaguar F-PACE SVR, complete with an exhaust sound from the engineering gods, is for you.

It is no secret that we are massive fans of the new Jaguar F-Pace but if your lifestyle calls for an SUV inspired by the motorsport experience then the Jaguar F-PACE SVR will have you from your first acceleration.
“The original F-PACE SVR was incredibly characterful, well received by customers, and has gone on to become the highest-selling Jaguar SV product ever,” said Michael van der Sande, Managing Director, Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations. “The new version builds on this success, by making numerous detailed improvements that combine to raise the bar in the high-performance SUV segment.”


Thanks to the latest enhancements by the Jaguar SV team, the pinnacle of the F-PACE SUV range is elevated to another level. Walking up to this new Jag you notice the new vents, that enhance airflow and add aerodynamic benefits to deliver superior aerodynamic performance, which includes a 35 percent reduction in aerodynamic lift and a reduction in drag to 0.36 Cd. In addition to performance enhancements, these elements also provide a more purposeful aesthetic.






The Pinnacle Of SUV Performance


The 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, which produces 550 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. A power that surpasses the 160mph take-off speed of an Airbus A321. The dynamic character inside is all about British Racing. The door inserts are finished in Alcantara. The 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display is wrapped in Alcantara with ebony stitching, while aluminum-patterned finishers feature as standard. Our test car showcased the open-pore carbon fiber that is available as an option.

Outfitted with optional slimline, semi-aniline leather sports seats with heritage logo-inspired diamond embroidery across the front shoulder section, our test car also featured a unique perforation across the backrest. The same pattern repeats on the leather seatbacks. An embossed SVR logo on the headrests adds a flourish, but it is this new SVR split-rim steering wheel that is finished with tactile zinc-alloy shift paddles that have us crazy in lust. We loved the heightened driver engagement when making manual gear changes.

The F-PACE SVR features all of the advanced technologies found in the latest F-PACE, ensuring it is connected and up-to-date for enhanced driver convenience: These include intuitive Pivi Pro infotainment, Software-Over-Air capability, Active Road Noise Cancellation, wireless device charging, the latest advanced driver assistance systems, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.1,2,3 that will have rethinking working from home to working in your Jag.
