2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR

2017-jaguar-f-type-svr-front-angle-1The New 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR is the first Jaguar SVR, developed to exploit the lightweight aluminium sports car’s full potential while retaining its inherent tractability and day-to-day usability.

The cabin gains cosseting 14-way SVR Performance seats finished in Jet black leather with a distinctive Lozenge Quilt pattern, contrast stitching and micro-piping and headrests embossed with the SVR logo. Customers also have the option of Siena Tan or Red leather. The SVR Jet black leather and optional Jet black leather and suedecloth steering wheels feature black painted spoke outers and contrast stitching in a range of four colours. The unique anodised aluminium shift paddles are larger than those in other F-TYPE models to make changing gear even more instinctive.

The InControl Touch and InControl Touch Plus infotainment systems feature eight-inch capacitive touchscreens, intuitive user interfaces and crisp, clear 3D map displays and offer 380W Meridian and 770W Meridian surround sound audio systems respectively. As well as the familiar InControl Apps smartphone connectivity, InControl Secure vehicle monitoring and InControl Protect emergency call system, the F-TYPE SVR also offers the latest InControl Remote functionality, which – for the ultimate in convenience – now supports wearable technology.

2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR Exterior. The effort made in developing the chassis was matched by the work done on the F-TYPE SVR’s aerodynamics. Asked to solve the often conflicting requirements of reducing drag and reducing lift, the SVO team designed a full suite of features which work together to improve dynamics, stability, performance and efficiency.

With the car in Normal mode, the wing deploys once vehicle speed reaches 60mph and 70mph for the Convertible and Coupé respectively. The wing will also deploy automatically whenever the driver selects Dynamic mode. In this raised position, the wing, together with the other aerodynamic enhancements, enables a reduction in the F-TYPE SVR’s drag and lift coefficients of 2.5 per cent and 15 per cent respectively compared to the F-TYPE R with spoiler deployed. When the SVR’s wing is in the lowered position, the corresponding improvements are 7.5 per cent and 45 per cent.

Exterior design options to complement the carbon fibre rear wing include a carbon fibre roof panel and a carbon fibre pack comprising the front chin section, bonnet louvres, fender vent ingots and door mirror caps. To cut drag, the front bumper was extended outboard to mask as much of the wheels as possible. This also helps the airflow to remain attached to the sides of the car, reducing drag still further.

The wider, specially-developed 265/35/ZR20 and 305/30/ZR20 tyres provide exceptional levels of grip with no detriment to ride quality or refinement. The range of 9J and 11J forged aluminium wheels deliver savings of up to 13.8kg per vehicle – another weight reduction which beat the development target – and the open spoke design also improves brake cooling. Exclusive to the F-TYPE SVR, the range comprises Coriolis wheels in Satin Technical Grey or Gloss Black, and – for models fitted with the CCM braking system – Maelstrom wheels with a Satin Black polished finish.

2017-jaguar-f-type-svr-front2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR Engines and Transmission. 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR features the latest evolution of Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 to deliver the ultimate in performance and driver reward. Changes to the engine’s calibration – adopted from the F-TYPE Project 7 – deliver power and torque ratings of 575PS and 700Nm.

The new lightweight titanium and Inconel exhaust system can withstand higher peak temperatures, reduces backpressure and saves 16kg – a weight reduction which exceeds the demanding target set during development. Compared to the F-TYPE R’s stainless steel system, Inconel’s increased thermal resistance meant that wall thickness could be halved to just 0.6mm. The new system also delivers an even more distinctive, purposeful, harder-edged exhaust note, especially once the active valves in the rear silencers open – this happens at lower engine speeds to enhance the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR’s performance character still further. Even the valves themselves are made from titanium because this is the ultimate lightweight solution.

To make the most of the increased engine output, the eight-speed Quickshift transmission gains a new calibration. Together with the extra grip delivered by the wider, 265- and 305-section front and rear tyres (10mm wider than the F-TYPE R), and optimising the torque on-demand all-wheel drive system’s Intelligent Driveline Dynamics (IDD) control technology, this delivers the F-TYPE SVR’s outstanding launch behaviour and immediacy of response.

2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR Price. 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR is the first Jaguar SVR and the fastest F-TYPE ever Developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations to be lighter, quicker, faster and more powerful while remaining tractable and useable day-to-day. Customers may specify and order their F-TYPE SVR now, ahead of the global debut at the Geneva Motor Show. Pricing announced today from £110,000 for the Coupé and £115,485 for the Convertible
