So we got a 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR
If you look beyond the hype, the Jaguar F-Type isn’t anything ground-breaking when it comes to sports cars. Based off of a decade-old chassis with carryover engines, its claim to fame was always the noise rather than the dynamics, at least when compared to various rivals. So we weren’t expecting a whole lot from the SVR version of this car. But boy were we wrong.
The SVR doesn’t look a whole lot different from the basic F-Type, aside from wings and vents. Based purely on show, it may be hard to justify the top Jag’s near supercar-level price tag.
However, the F-Type truly does offer near-supercar levels of performance now that it has rear-biased all-wheel-drive to keep the excess power in check. It’s more fun to drive than a Nissan GT-R, that’s for sure. Sounds better too. More on that in the full review.
