The 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR is hellaciously fast!

If you were looking for a car that is extremely fast and fun to drive, it’s time to take a look at the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR. Developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, the F-Type SVR is a direct offshoot of the gorgeous rear-drive, limited-production $165,000 Project 7 tire-roaster.

The Jaguar‘s supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 puts down an identical 575 horsepower as the Project 7 (and 25 more than the R) but even more torque (516 lb-ft versus 502) thanks to new intercoolers and hood vents that allow for freer breathing. Aside from the added power, this is much more of a range-topping special trim than it is a significantly different model. The ZF eight-speed automatic’s software quickens shift times and the launch control is altered for harder acceleration from a stop, while tweaks to the torque-vectoring rear differential, all-wheel-drive system. One more important thing is that new model is able to reach 60 mph in a claimed 3.5 seconds, or 0.4-second quicker than the R. The SVR coupe tops out at the magic 200-mph mark, a 14-mph bump over the R; the convertible can only do 195.
