Jaguar’s first-ever SUV, the F-Pace, will soon get a very powerful variant that’ll adopt either the SVR or the R moniker.
Scooped in motion while doing fast laps on the Nurburgring, the production-ready prototype will sweep the floor with the current F-Pace S and its 380 horsepower, as it probably use the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 sourced from the F-Type R, in which it is good for 550 horsepower.
Pther reports indicate towards the adoption of an updated V6 which could deliver as much as 500 HP. Whatever the case may be, one thing is certain – the Jaguar F-Pace SVR / R is on a mission to become an intimidating rival for the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 and the Porsche Macan Turbo.
Besides growing more muscle, the potent SUV will also benefit from an improved chassis, with work focused on the suspension and steering. Bigger brakes are also needed and updated electronics should close the technical updates list, while setting it apart will be a beefed up body kit.
