Developed by Jaguar's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), the SVR is the first of its kind and comes with some impressive figures. Under its hood sits a V8 engine capable of 576 horsepower and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque, and drivers will be able to use every last of it as the car comes with all-wheel-drive and a ZF eight-speed automatic gearbox.

Thanks to these specs, the new F-Type SVR goes from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). In other words, those who drove the Jaguar V8-hearted F-Type know that the SVR-badged version is a must-have.

Oh, not to mention that Special Vehicle Operations were also responsible for the exclusive F-Type Project 7, where all 250 units are already sold, so they must know what they’re doing.

The bad-ass F-Type is 90 lbs (43 kg) lighter and comes, among other things, with ceramic brakes, forged wheels and a titanium exhaust, so you’ll be hearing a lot those edgy growls.

As rumored not long ago, the Jag might also come with a convertible version. And there is nothing better than going with your roof down on a sunny day in a 194 mph car.

The F-Type SVR is the first series production Jaguar to be developed by Special Vehicle Operations and benefits from everything we know about precision engineering, performance and design. The result is a 200 mph, all-weather supercar that you can drive every day - we even made a Convertible version so that enthusiasts can revel in the sound from the new titanium exhaust system,” John Edwards, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations, stated.
