Currently, the fastest Jaguar F-Type on sale is the R AWD Coupé. With a 0-62 mph time of only 4.1 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph, you can say that it is a seriously fast car. However, the skunkworks team over at JLR Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) thought that wasn’t fast enough. So they took a “standard” F-Type R AWD and worked their magic in order to hit their target of 200 mph. Welcome to the Jaguar F-Type SVR.

The official release of the F-Type SVR isn’t slated until the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March, however Jaguar has released some official images and a short video ahead of time. A brochure with all the juicy details also leaked on the internet just prior to Jaguar’s press release.

The F-Type SVR will be the first Jaguar to brand the new SVR badge from JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations team, which essentially replaces the R-S badge previously used on the XK and XF models. The last vehicle to brand the SVR badge was on the Range Rover SVR, which was the first official production model that SVO got their hands on.

The powerplant and the heart of the new F-Type SVR will be a reworked version of the current 5.0L supercharged V8 found in the F-Type R. Power is up 25 horsepower to 567 hp while torque is up 14 lb-ft to 516 lb-ft. This results in a 0-62 mph time of just 3.7 seconds, a 0.4 second improvement. Top speed is at a ludicrous 200 mph, which was the only mandate for the project. There will also be a convertible version with a top speed of “only” 194 mph.

Other improvements include standard carbon-ceramic brakes, a titanium exhaust, and forged aluminum alloy wheels, which in total combines to a savings of 130 lbs over the F-Type R AWD. Most of it being unsprung mass, which is really the worst kind of weight. There are also many aerodynamic improvements to hit that 200 mph goal. A revised new front bumper with larger air intakes and a reworked chin splitter dawn the front of the new SVR. While a large rear diffuser and a new rear spoiler, which reduces lift by 80%, round off the aggressive rear of the car.

Prices have been announced at 100,000 British Pounds, however if you want to order one, contact your nearest JLR dealership for pricing and availability.
