  • Distinctive Graphic Pack enhances 322km/h Jaguar F-TYPE SVR
  • Six racing-inspired colourways include ‘575’ stripes, carbon fibre bonnet louvres, lightweight forged 20-inch wheels, bespoke tread plates and commissioning plaque
  • Created by Special Vehicle Operations’ bespoke personalisation team, under the stewardship of Jaguar Director of Design Ian Callum
  • F-TYPE SVR featuring new Graphic Pack to make world debut at Geneva Motor Show, 6-18 March 2018

Pretoria, 5 March 2018 – New Jaguar F-TYPE SVR buyers can now specify a personalisation package for the 322km/h all-weather supercar, adding distinctive racing-inspired visual touches at no extra cost.

Special Vehicle Operations’ Jaguar designers led by Director of Design, Ian Callum, and its bespoke vehicle personalisation team, have created a Graphic Pack which adds a compelling dose of visual muscle to the exhilarating all-wheel drive F-TYPE SVR.

Accentuating the F-TYPE SVR’s lift and drag-reducing aerodynamics package of front bumper and splitter, flat underfloor, carbon fibre active rear wing and rear venturi are a contrast grille surround, mirror caps and aero winglets. Bonnet and sill decals with ‘575’ graphics signify the 5.0-litre Supercharged V8’s outstanding 575-horsepower (423kW) output, with carbon bonnet louvres and side ingots reinforcing the high-performance theme.

The F-TYPE SVR Graphic Pack is available in six unique colourways:

  • Yulong White with Firenze Red accents
  • Santorini Black and Gold
  • Corris Grey and Ultra Blue
  • Caldera Red and Black
  • Ultra Blue and Corris Grey
  • Indus Silver and Black

All feature lightweight 20-inch forged wheels and colour-matched brake calipers (Red or Black). Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes are available as an option, but feature yellow calipers.

Inside, the Graphic Pack adds illuminated ‘575’ tread plates and a commissioning plaque that’s only fitted to cars specified with the Graphic Pack.

Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said: 
“The F-TYPE SVR is one of the most dynamic, dramatic and fastest road cars ever created by Jaguar. The Graphic Pack perfectly complements its sporting character with a touch of heritage.”

Developed by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division, the F-TYPE SVR is designed to be the fastest and most powerful F-TYPE, while remaining usable day-to-day. The 322km/h all-weather supercar will accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, yet rewards drivers with surefooted handling, crisp steering and powerful braking.

F-TYPE SVR’s chassis features uprated dampers and anti-roll bars, stiffer rear suspension knuckles, and wider tyres – 265/35 R20 and 305/30 R20 – giving it a distinctive character with finely honed responses. The 423kW Supercharged V8 emits a purposeful and harder edged sound through a lightweight titanium and Inconel exhaust system.

Pricing for the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR begins at R2 286 800. Customers can build their own Jaguar F-TYPE using the configurator on the Jaguar website. All new Jaguar cars come with the five-year Jaguar Care Plan: a five-year/100 000km service plan, a five-year/100 000km maintenance plan and a five-year/100 000km warranty, as standard.
