Fast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez got behind the wheel of the new F-Type SVR and went faster that she’s ever gone before.
Since the common denominator here is “speed”, it’s worth pointing out that this happens to be the fastest F-Type ever, not only capable of exceeding 200 mph (320 km/h) but also hitting 60 mph (96 km/h)from a standstill in just 3.5 seconds.
Needless to say, the Hollywood actress was quite smitten with the £110,000 Jag.
“I’ve now broken my personal speed record in the beautiful Jaguar F-Type SVR. Reaching 201 mph felt amazing, the car drove really smoothly, all my corrections were minimal, I was super focused and it really reacted in all the right ways. I don’t think I’d ever go this fast without a professional driver seated next to me but, oh man, it was an incredible feeling.”
The F-Type SVR is Jaguar’s ultimate performance vehicle. It’s got a 575 PS V8 that’s also good for 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque – and at that price range, one could argue that anybody interested in going really fast should really take this thing out for a test drive.
“I’ve always wondered what it was like to travel faster than my top speed of 140mph and, outside of the Autobahn, it’s impossible for me to do it safely anywhere else and safety is most important to me. It was refreshing to be able to take myself beyond my limitations, going that fast is a big responsibility but the experience in this car was more graceful than anything I’ve felt before.”
Sounds like a glowing review to us – so, is that cheque book coming out any time now, Ms. Rodriguez?
