Jaguar F-Pace SVR 2019 revealed in New York

Jaguar's F-Pace SVR flagship performance SUV will launch from 0-100km/h in 4.3 seconds before hitting a top-speed of 283km/h.

Jaguar has lifted the silk off its new F-Pace SVR at the New York motor show, sporting enhanced styling, more engine and a host of go-fast upgrades over the current F-Pace range.

Confirmed for an Australian launch around November this year, the high-performance mid-size SUV is motivated by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 tuned to produce 404kW of power and 680Nm of torque courtesy of Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) tuning division Special Vehicle Operations (SVO).

This translates to a zero to 100km/h dash of 4.3 seconds and a maximum velocity of 283km/h with the eight-speed automatic transmission at full tilt.

For comparison, the current top-dog F-Pace, the S 35t, makes a strong 280kW and 450Nm of torque from its supercharged V6, and runs the 0-100km/h sprint in a claimed 5.5s.

Sharper handling can also be expected with stiffer adaptive suspension onboard, as well as a more rigid chassis and a revised power steering calibration.

While all-wheel-drive is standard across the F-Pace range, the SVR's driveline has been upgraded with torque vectoring capability and an electronic limited-slip differential at the rear to manage the added grunt.

The SVR F-Pace gets a more aggressive body kit, 25mm-wider rear hoops and a set of quad tailpipes. The SVR F-Pace gets a more aggressive body kit, 25mm-wider rear hoops and a set of quad tailpipes.

Styling has been tweaked too, with a more aggressive body kit, 25mm-wider rear hoops and a set of quad tailpipes that finish the SVR's bespoke Variable Active Exhaust System.

The new forged wheels will be available in ‘lightweight’ 21-inch or 22-inch sizing, shielding the mid-size Brit's 395mm front and 396mm rear two-piece brake discs.

On the inside, the F-Pace SVR has been treated to slimline leather ‘sports’ seats, a 10.0-inch infotainment system and a 12.0-inch digital instrument cluster – the latter two carried over from the standard F-Pace range.
