Jaguar F-Type SVR, the nutty new variant of the British supercar, is now available for booking ahead of its debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show next month. The first Jaguar SVR and the fastest F-Type ever, prices for the 567bhp supercar will start from GBP 110,000 (coupe) and GBP 115,485 (convertible).Developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, the Jaguar F-Type SVR is “lighter, quicker, faster and more powerful while remaining tractable and useable day-to-day”. According to the British luxury carmaker, the all-wheel drive car’s performance is aided by an enhanced chassis and driveline and active aerodynamics.

Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said, “The purity of the F-TYPE’s form is something truly special, but in designing the new F-TYPE SVR we had the opportunity to create something even more dramatic. Every additional form, line or component is there for a reason, and contributes to the car’s increased performance as well as its presence. Cutting-edge aerodynamics have always been fundamental to Jaguar design, and everything from the enlarged air intakes to the active rear wing is essential to the new F-TYPE SVR’s dramatic looks and 200mph potential.”

While the new F-Type SVR sports a handful of changes, the most notable is the deployable rear wing, which is “more effective and more aerodynamically-efficient in both raised and lowered and positions”. The SVR variant is 25Kg lighter than the AWD F-Type R, and with options including the Carbon Ceramic Matrix brake system and carbon fibre roof the weight savings double up – 50Kg to be precise.
