Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupe 2016Jaguar has revealed the high-performance new F-Type SVR will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show 2016 – but while it’s confirmed this will be a 200mph F-Type, Jaguar’s not yet revealed exactly how fast it will be.

The first SVR-branded Jaguar, it will be the latest performance model from the Special Vehicle Operations division. That’s the same specialist unit that also recently developed the Range Rover Sport SVR.

On sale in the summer, the F-Type SVR will, claims Jaguar, exploit the all-aluminium F-Type’s full potential “while retaining its day-to-day usability”.

It “takes performance, dynamics and driver involvement to a new level” says the firm of the lighter, faster and more powerful SVR, “yet retains the comfort and duality”.

JLR SVO MD John Edwards added that “the result is a 200mph, all-weather supercar that you can drive every day”.

Jaguar’s even made an F-Type SVR Convertible.

What do we know about the Jaguar F-Type SVR?

Jaguar promises full technical details, including pricing, will be revealed on 17 February. Mark the date in your diary.

For now, it’s all speculation – but consensus (and leaks) seem to suggest the F-Type SVR will produce 575hp from its 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine, for a 0-62mph time of just 3.7 seconds.

Likely boasting all-wheel drive, the F-Type SVR will be much stiffer and racier than the regular F-Type R, while confirmed weight-saving details include a new titanium exhaust systems (whose sound enthusiasts will “revel in” promises Edwards).

The F-Type SVR will sit at the top of the F-Type tree, in a range that includes the regular car, F-Type S, F-Type R and recent special edition F-Type British Design Edition.

But although it’s the first Jaguar SVR, it’s not actually the first SVO-developed Jaguar: that was the F-Type Project 7, whose strictly limited 250 editions are now all fully sold out.

One of the 250 owners is no less than David Beckham.
