  • 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds
  • Available from summer, costing from £74,835
Jaguar’s first SUV, the F-Pace, has been given the SVR treatment, with a few tweaks inside and out, and a stonking 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine with 550 horsepower under the bonnet. It will do the 0-60mph run in 4.1 seconds, with a top speed of 176mph.

The F-Pace SVR has been engineered by Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) Special Vehicle Operations, which is responsible for the SVAutobiography (luxury), SVR (sporty), and SVX (off-road) editions of JLR cars. As you can imagine, they're the range-toppers.
On the outside, the F-Pace SVR has different front and rear bumpers, lower body sides, larger air intakes, wheel arch extensions, and a rear flip spoiler to help out with cooling, reducing lift and drag, and enhancing high-speed stability. The F-Pace SVR will come with 21-inch wheels, with optional 22-inch available.

Inside, buyers will get slimline sports seats in the front and rear – obviously complete with embossed SVR logo and signature lozenge quilting – and an SVR-branded steering wheel with paddle shifters.

And there’s four sporty interior colour themes: Red with Jet, Light Oyster with Jet, Siena Tan with Jet, and Jet with Light Oyster stitching.

This is along with the usual F-Pace tech including 4G Wifi for up to eight devices, a 10.0-inch touch-screen infotainment system, and 12.3-inch HD instrument cluster.

Boot size hasn’t been affected, so there’s still 650-litres of space to play with.
And as well as that new 5.0-litre V8, there’s also an SVR-tuned chassis, uprated brakes, and a new, lighter exhaust.

The F-Pace SVR will be available to order from summer 2018, and will set you back from £74,835.
