The Jaguar Land Rover motor company is letting all comers know that it plans on putting the pedal to the metal when it comes to its new Jaguar F-Pace SVR as it looks to keep the momentum going in the SUV category.
While there’s a gold rush going with the multiple introductions of the whole self driving and autonomous driving segment, the new Jaguar F-Pace SVR is betting that there’s still a bunch of us out there that want the sensory pleasure of actually controlling the driving experience and the F-Pace SVR is being tagged a being a driver’s driving machine, sorry BMW. The company is betting that adding a boat load of power will help keep the pretenders away by making faster, stronger and more appealing as it boasts a supercharge five point zero engine that can output 550 horses with a V8 with over 500 pounds per foot of torque and can hit a top end of 175 miles per hour and should be able to go from 0 to 60 in just over four seconds. To put this in perspective, the new F-Pace SVR will produce a whopping one hundred and seventy more horsepower than its predecessor the Jaguar F-Pace S. The introduction of the SVR comes on the heels of the recent Jaguar Land Rover partnership announcement with the Waymo company, part of Google’s parent company’s Alphabet stable, where they will produce up to 20,000 I-Pace driverless cars.
The aerodynamics of the new F-Pace SVR have also been re-built from the ground up, no pun intended, with a new lower centre of gravity and new spoilers that will reduce drag and lift, enhance cooling and provide for greater stability when the truck is opened up on the highways. Some options will also include an all wheel drive version with an automatic engine. The new Jaguar F-Pace SVR should be hitting dealerships before the end of this year and you can expect to pay somewhere around $80,000 for the unhinged pleasure of driving this immaculate SUV.
