Jaguar has set its most powerful SUV loose in South Africa! It’s called the F-Pace SVR and it will make its local debut this weekend at the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb event with our very own Ashley Oldfield behind the wheel! See details below…
Fitted with a powerful supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine that offers 405 kW and 680 Nm of torque, the F-Pace SVR is capable of splintering performance and can accelerate from zero to 100 kph in 4.3 seconds and run to a top speed of 283 kph.
The F-Pace SVR will compete in the Jaguar Simola Hillclimb this weekend and our very own race ace, Ashley Oldfield will be pushing the newcomer to its limits.
The F-Pace SVR rides on 21-inch wheels as standard (22-inch optional) and its performance is complemented with a throaty soundtrack thanks to the fitment of Jaguar’s Variable Valve Active Exhaust System and also features a specially-calibrated 8-speed automatic transmission and uprated suspension.
The F-Pace SVR's interior offers luxury and comfort with the Touch Pro Duo infotainment system being a highlight.
More than this, a sports-tuned electronic differential, adaptive dynamics and torque vectoring by braking ensures that cornering capability is maximised. Equipped with a unique dynamic driving mode, gear shifts, throttle and steering response are sharpened to deliver a more engaging driving experience. With all-wheel drive and features such as All Surface Progress Control and Adaptive Surface Response, the F-Pace SVR can negotiate various terrain and weather conditions.
Key interior features include slimline performance seats, SVR steering wheel with aluminium paddle shifters and a Touch Pro Duo infotainment system comprising a 10-inch touchscreen and 12.3-inch high-definition instrument cluster. A 4G WiFi hotspot can also connect up to 8 devices if required.
