Available for sale in Coupe and Convertible options, the newly launched Jaguar F-Type SVR has been developed by the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) team at Jaguar Land Rover.
Commenting on the launch of Jaguar F-Type SVR, Rohit Suri - President & Managing Director - Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd.

Be it design, performance or comfort; sports car enthusiasts will experience all these features when behind the wheel of the new F-TYPE SVR.”
While the newly launched F-Type gets minor cosmic updates on the exterior including new daytime running LED lights with integrated indicators, a new bumper and revised tail-lights, the cabin of the luxurious car features SVR performance seats with cooling option and have been constructed with lightweight magnesium that saves 8 kg of weight when compared with the previous generation models. Other highlights include the forged 20-inch alloy wheels that save a further 13.8 kg, while the use of a new, larger rear bearing enables an increased stiffness of up to 37 percent higher than the conventional F-Type rear knuckles while the F-Type SVR's V-MAX mode allows you to achieve astonishing speeds with minimum drag delivering pure driving pleasure and re-defining the art of performance. Also, the wider Pirelli P-Zero tyres that are 10mm wider than standard F-Type tyres add to the premiumness of the car.
