The Jaguar F-PACE gets the SVR treatment to make it the fastest and most powerful Jaguar SUV yet

Engineered by the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division, the F-PACE SVR’s 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine enables it to reach 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 176mph. Drawing on Jaguar Land Rover’s extensive all-terrain expertise, the F-PACE SVR features a host of advanced technologies to ensure on and off-road performance.

Aerodynamic enhancements include larger air intakes at the front and side vents that lower pressure in the wheel arches. In addition, SVR bonnet features vents to help extract hot air from the engine bay. At the rear, the spoiler is joined by a new bumper housing the quad tailpipes, benefitting from being 6.6kg lighter than the standard car. The bumper incorporates side strakes that aid aerodynamic performance by smoothing airflow away from the rear of the vehicle.

For all its performance, the SVR retains the practicality and versatility inherent to the PACE family, with its 650 litre loadspace. Jaguar’s SUV keeps passengers connected and entertained on the move with 4G WiFi and is also equipped with an infotainment system with 10inch touchscreen and a 12.3inch instrument cluster.
