Jaguar F-PACE gets the SVR treatment

The Jaguar F-PACE gets the SVR treatment to make it the fastest and most powerful F-PACE yet.

Engineered by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) go-fast division, the F-PACE SVR’s 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine produces 404kW and 680Nm, enabling it to reach 0-100km/h in 4.3 seconds with a top speed of 283km/h. Coupled to an enhanced chassis, bespoke aerodynamics and all-wheel drive, the F-PACE SVR promises maximum driver reward in all conditions.

“The F-PACE SVR delivers the handling and agility to match its performance. 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,” said Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar Land Rover.

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 of the Active Exhaust system. 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 incorporates a larger anti-roll bar for 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.

Inside, the F-PACE SVR features slimline performance front seats that provide enhanced lateral support and have signature lozenge quilting and embossed SVR logo. Unique rear seats echo the heavily sculpted designs up front and the SVR branded steering wheel features aluminium paddle shifters.

The Jaguar F-PACE SVR is available now in Australia priced from $140, 020 plus on-road costs.
