Jaguar's luxury F-Pace has received the SVR treatment and the result is one very quick SUV. It is confirmed for South Africa too! Here are some details.
As it stands, the current flagship Jaguar F-Pace makes do with a supercharged V6 engine. However, in SVR application, a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 with 405 kW and 680 Nm is fitted, which gives it enough grunt to hit 100 kph in a claimed 4.3 seconds and it'll go on to a top speed of 283 kph.
In terms of visual appeal, there are bigger air intakes at the front and numerous vents to draw hot air out of the engine bay. The rear features a unique spoiler as well as 4 fat exhausts. They're of the Active Exhaust variety, meaning you can switch from quiet and subtle to wake-the-neighbours levels of noise. There are new lightweight 21- and 22-inch forged alloy wheels too. In the cabin, there are performance seats with embossed SVR logos and an SVR-branded steering wheel.
It is coming to South Africa and Jaguar confirmed its F-Pace SVR will touchdown in the second half of 2018.
