Jaguar is building a 320kph F-Type SVR

Jaguar has confirmed that it is building a top-of-the-range, 320kph F-Type ‘SVR’, to be unveiled properly at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

That’s right, a faster car than the already-quite-fast Jaguar F-Type R. Though no technical details have yet been issued, we’re told the new car is lighter, faster and more powerful.

Oh, and that it’ll be able to crack the 320kph barrier.

Expect a more highly tuned version of that raucous 5.0-litre, supercharged V8 on board, producing more than the current R’s 542bhp, along with more torque.

The SVR – the first series production Jaguar to be developed by the company’s Special Vehicle Operations – also promises to take “performance, dynamics and driver involvement to a new level”, while still retaining the comfort you’d expect from a Jag.

There’ll be noise, too. The F-Type SVR will feature a new titanium exhaust system, and the company has confirmed that a convertible SVR will soon be available. So that’s a 5.0-litre supercharged V8, a new exhaust, and no roof. Can you imagine?

As mentioned, we’ll have more details in the run up to Geneva. Stay tuned…
