Jaguar F-Type SVR Shows Its Claws In New York

The most powerful, fastest and expensive version of Jaguar’s F-Type, the new SVR, celebrated its North American debut in New York today

The high-performance model was originally presented in Geneva last month,  and since Jag’ had nothing new to say about it today, we’re assuming that the North American version will be identical to the European one, minus the price, which starts from $126,945 for the coupe in the States.

It’s powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, borrowed from the V8 S and V8 R models, tweaked to deliver 567 HP and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. That’s 25 HP on top of what the $20,000 cheaper “R” has to offer.

With the SVR, you also get a modded AWD system, improved aerodynamics, different exhaust, the option of carbon ceramic brakes and a carbon fiber roof on the coupe.
