With reconfigured aerodynamics and intelligent All Wheel Drive, this is a true 200mph all-weather supercar. F-TYPE has been made lighter, more powerful, more aerodynamic and, as a result, faster.

Those customers wanting something even more rare and extreme, the XE SV Project 8 may be the car for you. With a limited run of 300, this 600PS 5.0 litre supercharged V8 is the most powerful road legal Jaguar in history.

At Lancaster Jaguar we recognise our customers are unique and often would like to personalise a vehicle beyond the existing options choices. We invite you to contact us to find out more and discuss your SVO requirements.

F-PACE SVR

We are pleased to announce the launch of the F-PACE SVR. The F-PACE, 2017 World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year, gets the SVR treatment to make it the fastest and most powerful F-PACE yet, with an enhanced chassis and aerodynamics for maximum driver reward in all conditions.

Engineered by Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), with a 44% uplift in power, the F-PACE SVR’s 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine produces 550PS and 680Nm, enabling it to reach 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 176 mph. The Jaguar F-PACE SVR has an unladen weight of 2070kg.

“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.”

Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar Land Rover

Priced from £74,835 OTR, F-PACE SVR will be available to order from May 2018, with first customer deliveries expected from late Summer 2018.

Aerodynamics

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 optimising high-speed stability. 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. 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.

Handling

The uprated chassis has progressive front and rear springs that are 30% and 10% stiffer respectively, and incorporate an anti-roll bar specification that contributes to a 5% reduction in body roll.

New, lightweight forged 21-inch and optional 22-inch alloy wheels are wider at the rear by 25mm compared to the front, contributing to the SVR’s enhanced handling. The 22-inch wheels are 2.4kg lighter on the front and 1.7kg lighter on the rear, 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.

Technology

F-PACE SVR features Jaguar’s Variable Valve Active Exhaust System. This provides 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.

Interior

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. The SVR’s sports car character is underlined by the Sport Shift Selector and SVR branded steering wheel features such as the tactile aluminium paddle shifters.

The SVR retains the practicality and versatility of the PACE family, with its 650-litre loadspace (with rear seats up) unaffected by its enhanced performance. Jaguar’s SUV keeps passengers connected and entertained on the move with 4G WiFi for up to eight devices, and is also equipped with the advanced Touch Pro infotainment system with 10-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch HD instrument cluster.

Four interior colour themes help highlight the vehicle’s high performance personality; Ebony/Pimento Red duotone, Ebony/Light Oyster duotone, Ebony/Siena Tan duotone and Ebony with Light Oyster stitching.

All-Terrain

Drawing on Jaguar Land Rover’s extensive all-terrain expertise, the F-PACE SVR features a host of advanced technologies to ensure superb all-surface performance. All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Driveline Dynamics, All Surface Progress Control and Adaptive Surface Response ensure the SUV can handle conditions in all weathers.
