2019 Jaguar F-Pace SVR Packs A 542HP Supercharged V8, Priced From $79,990

If for any reason you found the 380-horsepower F-Pace S lacking in oomph – despite a manufacture claimed 5.1-sec run to 60mph (96km/h), fret not, as Jaguar has answered your prayers with the new SVR.

Making its world premiere at the 2018 New York Auto Show on Wednesday, the 2019MY F-Pace SVR packs the same supercharged 5.0-liter V8 utilized in numerous other high-end performance models in the Jaguar-Land Rover group, including the F-Type and Range Rover Sport SVR.

The performance specs

In this application, it’s good for 542hp (550PS) and 680Nm (501.5 lb/ft) of torque. Paired to a standard all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed automatic transmission, it catapults the F-Pace SVR to 60mph in 4.1 sec (100km/h in 4.3 sec) and on to a top speed of 176mph (283 km/h). It also promises to sound the part as the V8 gets Jaguar’s Variable Valve Active Exhaust System that’s 6.6kg (14.5 lbs) lighter than the standard exhaust.

Jaguar says that’s not all, as it has performed numerous tweaks to the chassis to go with the extra power.

The F-PACE SVR delivers the handling and agility to match its performance,” said Mike Cross, Chief Engineer at Jaguar Land Rover. “Everything from the steering to the bespoke suspension set-up has been tuned specifically for our performance SUV and the result is a vehicle that lives up to the promise of both the F-PACE and SVR

Among other changes are stiffer springs, lightweight forged 21- and optional 22-inch alloy wheels that are wider at the rear by 25mm compared to the front, and uprated 395mm front and 396mm rear brake discs. It also gets a rear Electronic Active Differential (EAD), while Jaguar optimized the all-wheel drive, adaptive dynamics and electronic-powered steering system for the SVR.

How does it stand out from the pack?

Beyond the chunkier wheels, Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) team gave the performance F-Pace a host of aerodynamic enhancements, though the design remains clean. Up front, there’s a new bumper with massive air intakes, while the exclusive hood and front fenders also gain vents, as does the rear bumper. The lower body moldings are new, with other features including a unique roof spoiler and quad exhaust pipes.

Moving on to the interior, the F-PACE SVR features slimline performance front seats with ‘lozenge quilting’ that provide increased support and sport an embossed SVR logo. The rear seats mimic the sculpted design found up front. There’s also a Sport Shift Selector on the lower console and an SVR branded steering wheel with tactile aluminum paddle shifters along with a standard Touch Pro infotainment system with 10-inch touchscreen and a 12.3-inch HD instrument cluster.

That all sounds great, but what will it cost me?

It goes on sale worldwide this summer with pricing starting from $79,990 in the United States where it gets a comprehensive 5 year / 60,000 miles warranty and scheduled maintenance, and from £74,835 OTR in the U.K..

    Love that it has so much power and performance potential, but the design looks a bit rushed. The front bumper air intakes look off, and the rear looks a bit weird.

  • Welp, over to you Porsche Macan, Audi RS Q3, and Alpina XD3.

    • lagunas3ca

      F-Pace is closer to Q5 in dimensions. Same height at 65″ but 2″ longer and 7″ wider.

      • Ahhh right, I’m sure the fastest Q5 would be SQ5? Not up to the game though.

  • LWOAP

    That thing probably sounds mean af. Now we wait for the Velar SVR.

    • Eythan Aldrich

      oh yes……I’m subscribed to that XD

  • Merc1

    It’s stunning, but it makes me want the Velar SVR even more.

    A little disappointing with the design and does anyone else feel like this is a little slow for the amount if power its quoted to have?? I mean the Macan Turbo and Alfa Romeo Q gets to 60 much quicker with a lot less power.

    • raikkonen

      Agreed…

      What’s the curb weight??????????????

      No, the Macan Turbo ,0-60 4.2…

      • Ruel Lewis

        It does 0-60 in 3.7 according to caranddriverdriver with the performance pack with 440 hp, which mind you is over a 100 hp down on this.

  • Nordschleife

    The unused space around that gear shifter is absolutely ridiculous but that’s just me nagging. This thing looks fantastic.

  • Soob

    Meh, was expecting more with the design.

    Looks great! I love the new seats and I hope they make it to the lower F-Paces.

  • botornot387

    This is awesome and wholly uninspired in the same token. I was hoping for an even more aggressive package, like the F-Type SVR of SUV’s and this just says I am here. Truly looking forward to seeing how it performs, especially with the Alfa out. Love that it has a real gear shifter and not the rotary dial, however, it is mounted in an area where it takes no ergonomics into account. It doesn’t need that much space.

  • SteersUright

    Bleh.
    Once the epitome of beautiful design, modern Jaguars are like some cheap knock-off of the original. You can supercharge a Corolla to high hell, it still won’t be a magnificent vehicle. These late Jags look so unfinished, unrefined, half-arsed and depreciate like a stone. A heavy stone.
