Jaguar F-Type SVR Latest Spy Shots

As we have mentioned before, Jaguar Land Rover is in the process of renaming its “R” and “R-S” high-performance models to a new name “SVR”, just like the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR.


It is expected the next model which receives the “SVR” treatment will be the Jaguar F-Type. Today some spy shots of the rumored F-Type SVR emerged on the internet. Please see the below gallery.

The F-Type SVR is an enhanced version based on the current F-Type R, which has a supercharged 5.0L V8 with 550hp and all-wheel-drive. The SVR version may has final output as high as reaching the 600hp mark (has not been confirmed by JLR at this moment)...

Jaguar Land Rover To Get SVR Badge

Most auto makers only have one naming convention for its high performance models, for example BMW M, Mercedes-Benz AMG, Lexus F etc.

the XF has the R-S mode (XFR-S):


and the most powerful F-Type is called “F-Type R”


This sounds like a chaos. But JLR is going to address this by using the SVR badge across the whole brand uniquely. This is confirmed by John Edwards, head of the JLR Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).

The Joy of All-Wheel-Drive

When your car’s engine output reaches a certain level, you really need it to be in all-wheel-drive. This is because if the large output is only applied to two wheels and may lose traction because the tires cannot handle the large output. Once that happens, it doesn’t really matter how many hp your powertrain is producing – your car won’t go faster. Therefore, it is wise to divide the output to all four wheels, which lowers the possibility of losing traction, and also guarantees the car still gets enough power to the ground in case any tires start to loose traction.
