Which Jaguar Should Get The SVR Treatment Next?

Between the luxed-out SVAutobiography models, the hardcore SVX off-roaders, the special projects, and the continuation classics, the folks over at Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations have been keeping plenty busy. We just can’t help but wonder when the next performance-oriented SVR model will come out, and what it’ll be based on.

To date, JLR SVO has only applied the go-fast SVR treatment to the F-Type and the Range Rover Sport. We know there’ll be more to come, but we’re glad to see (and bring to you) rendering artists like Nikita Aksyonov filling in the blanks.

These latest three projects by the Russian designer propose SVR versions of three Jaguar models: the XF, the XJ, and the E-Pace. And they all look pretty enticing.

As to which is more likely to actually roll out of a Jaguar factory, we’re expecting the F-Pace SVR to come first. But after that, the XF seems the most probable. After all, the previous XF yielded the supremely capable XFR-S, and we’ve yet to see a high-output version of the new model to take on the likes of the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG E63. If and when we do, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it looking a lot like this.

  • The XF should be an easy candidate but the problem with XJ is that they need more power to differentiate it to XJR, much like why BMW never made M7. But I can imagine XJ got SVAutobiography treatment.

    What sadden me is that we never got the chance to see Defender SVX… That supposed to be SVX first model but they cancel it.

      They cancelled it? Bummer.

      • Yeah if you noticed the Defender in Skyfall. You will se it has SVX badges on them. I’m not sure why they cancel it though.

    With the way the market is going, Jag should focus on what sells. IMO that would make the E-Pace the next likely candidate.

  • Bo Hanan

    The SVR logo should have british racing green in it.

  • LWOAP

    Seeing as the F Pace is all but confirmed, I would say the XF should be next so it can be a great successor for the XF-RS.

  • SteersUright

    None. This brand has derailed. A collection of heavily discounted 2nd rate vehicles that even SVR can’t save.

    • Michelin

      100% agree. Only few cars for magazine scoops. To say that Jaguar is faster than Porsche, Alfa Romeo and BMW in Nurburgring lap.
