Jaguar India has further expanded the F-Type sports car range with the addition of two AWD (all-wheel-drive) range-topping models and a special edition. While the Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible is priced at Rs 2.63 crore and the SVR Coupe is made available at Rs 2.45 crore (all, ex-showroom Delhi).
Official bookings for both the two-seaters are open across the country. Though, deliveries might begin in the next 5 to 6 months. One must note that the delivery time will vary with the customisation. In India, the Jaguar F-Type SVR Coupe takes on the Porsche 911 Turbo S, Nissan GT-R and the recently-launched Mercedes-AMG GT R. On the other side, the Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible goes up against the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet.
The F-Type SVR is the latest creation from Jaguar’s SVR (Special Vehicle Operations) division, which is known for creating powerful, high-tech laden, exceptionally luxurious and stunning cars. The new models of the sports car have reconfigured aerodynamics for better grip and Jaguar’s AWD technology for maximum traction at all times.
Powering the new F-Type SVR Convertible and SVR Coupe is the recalibrated 5.0-litre V8 engine that makes it the most powerful production car ever from the house of Jaguar. This supercharged V8 unit can do 0-100kmph in just 3.7 seconds. While the Coupe with a kerb weight of 1,705kg offers a top speed of 322kmph (200mph), the Convertible version with 1,720kg of weight can deliver a top speed of 314kmph. This V8 motor generates a whooping 575bhp of power at 6,500rpm, while yielding a peak torque of 700Nm at 3,500rpm. Check Out – Jaguar E-Pace Small SUV Pictures & Details
