Jaguar has taken the wraps off the fastest and most powerful version yet of its F-Pace sports utility vehicle.
The winner of the 2017 World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year has been re-engineered by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).
Powered by a 542bhp 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine combined with a stiffer chassis, bigger tyres and various aerodynamic tweaks, the performance SUV can sprint to 60mph in just 4.1 seconds.
Unveiled at the New York Motor Show, the muscular F-Pace SVR will cost £74,835 and will be available to order from the summer.
“The F-Pace SVR delivers the handling and agility to match its performance,” said Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar Land Rover.
“Everything from the steering to the bespoke suspension set-up has been tuned specifically for our performance SUV and the result is a vehicle that lives up to the promise of both the F-PACE and SVR names.”
The regular F-Pace has become the fastest-selling Jaguar since its debut in 2015.
