The 320 km/h Jaguar F-Type SVR Is Coming to Geneva
27 Janvier 2016 - Autoblog
Jaguar has good news for us: The new F-Type SVR will make its grand debut at March's Geneva Motor Show. Following up on leaked stats from last week, Jag confirms the hardtop F-Type SVR will be capable of hitting 200 miles per hour (320 km/h).
The British brand doesn't go much further in confirming other details from last week's report, though. So even though the top end's extra 22 km/h has to come from somewhere, we still can't be certain it'll be thanks to a reported 567 horsepower or 516 pound-feet of torque.
Jag also won't yet confirm the reported claim of a 3.7-second sprint to 100 km/h. What the company is saying, though, is that its first SVR-badged model will be "lighter, faster, and more powerful."
JLR's Special Operations boss, John Edwards, calls the new SVR an "all-weather supercar." That lends credence to initial reports that the hottest F-Type will send its power to all four wheels.
While the F-Type SVR will hit the Geneva stage on March 1, we won't be waiting that long for all the details – Jaguar will release a complete array of images and details on February 17. We'll have more then.
