Jaguar has recently launched the top spec trim in its F-Type lineup in India. The F-Type SVR Coupe has been priced at INR 2.45 crore ex-showroom and the drop top variant asks for INR 2.63 crore (ex-showroom Delhi). Coming from the Special Vehicle Operations vertical from Jaguar, this SVR version is the sportiest F-Type one can buy in India.

Powering the car is a 5.0L, supercharged, V8 motor producing 575 HP of power and 700 Nm of torque matched to an 8-speed automatic gearbox with AWD. The F-Type SVR can sprint from 0-100 kmph in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 322 kmph. The convertible variant has a top speed of 314 kmph.

The F-Type SVR is leaner thanks to light weight materials being used. Its lightweight Titanium and Inconel exhaust system saves 16 kg, while the forged alloy wheels offer a 13.8 kg overall weight saving. Each redesigned rear suspension knuckle shaves off 0.6 kg compared to conventional knuckles, and the optional 398 mm front and 380 mm rear carbon ceramic brakes reduce weight by 21 kg compared with non‑ceramic alternatives. \

F‑Type SVR’s aerodynamic wing is integral to its enhanced performance offering both less drag and higher levels of downforce. The wing is wider and more elevated, enabling it to act over the whole width of the car. When deployed, it gives a drag coefficient reduction of 2.5 percent and a lift coefficient reduction of 15 percent. Other aerodynamic enhancements manage airflow through the engine bay for optimum cooling and balanced downforce. The smooth underfloor and rear diffuser reduce drag, manage air flow and improve stability.

The Jaguar F-Type SVR rivals the likes of Mercedes-AMG GT R and Nissan GT-R.
