Jaguar has announced the pricing and specifications of its potent, V8-powered F-PACE SVR, which is available to order now from $140,020 plus on-road costs.
Engineered by JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), the F-PACE SVR’s 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine produces 404kW and 680Nm of torque – 44% uplift in power, enabling it to blast from 0-100km/h in 4.3 seconds with a top speed of 283km/h.
Aerodynamic enhancements include larger air intakes at the front and side fender vents that lower pressure in the wheel arches, reduce lift and provide additional cooling while also optimising high-speed stability. In addition, unique wheel arch extensions and lower body mouldings provide a low-slung muscularity that sets the SVR apart.
An exclusive SVR bonnet features vents to help extract hot air from the engine bay and provide visual evidence of the SVR’s dynamic intent.
At the rear, a unique spoiler is joined by a new bumper housing the quad tailpipes. The bumper incorporates side strakes that aid aerodynamic performance by smoothing airflow away from the rear of the vehicle.
The uprated chassis has progressive front and rear springs that are 30 and 10 per cent stiffer respectively and incorporate an anti-roll bar specification that contributes to a 5% reduction in body roll.
New, lightweight forged 21- and optional 22-inch alloy wheels are wider at the rear by 25mm compared to the front. The 22-inch wheels are 2.4kg lighter on the front and 1.7kg lighter on the rear and are designed to deliver greater airflow to the uprated larger 395mm front and 396mm rear brake discs. The brake discs feature an advanced two-piece construction on the front and rear to reduce weight, further contributing to the SVR’s agile handling.
F-PACE SVR also features Jaguar’s Variable Valve Active Exhaust System. It is said to provide a charismatic soundtrack and is another factor behind the SVR’s increased performance capability as the active system allows increased gas flow. The SVR exhaust is 6.6kg lighter than the standard F-PACE system.
The first F-PACE to utilise Jaguar’s rear Electronic Active Differential (EAD), F-PACE SVR features a comprehensive range of advanced technologies, each calibrated especially for the task. The torque on-demand All-Wheel Drive system’s Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) control technology has been optimised to maximise the benefit of the EAD, while the software for the Adaptive Dynamics suspension, Electronic Power Assisted Steering (EPAS) and Dynamic Driving Mode are all bespoke to SVR. Engaging Dynamic mode initiates faster, more responsive gearshifts, sharper throttle responses and increased steering response for a more engaging driving experience in all conditions.
Inside, the F-PACE SVR features slimline performance front seats for enhanced lateral support and have signature lozenge quilting and embossed SVR logo. In addition, the unique rear seats echo the heavily sculpted designs up front and the SUV’s sports car character is underlined by the Sport Shift Selector. Finally, the SVR branded steering wheel features tactile aluminium paddle shifters.
Four interior colour themes help to highlight the vehicle’s high performance personality; Red with Jet, Light Oyster with Jet, Siena Tan with Jet and Jet with Light Oyster stitching.
