The latest test mules for Jaguar's upcoming F-Type SVR have been spotted testing at the Nürburgring, ahead of the car's planned launch towards the end of this year.
The all-wheel-drive SVR will be the performance flagship of the F-Type range. It will be offered in both coupé and convertible forms, with power coming from an uprated version of the F-Type R’s supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine.
Previous estimates have suggested that the F-Type SVR, development of which has been undertaken by Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division, will produce as much as 600bhp.
However, Autocar understands that the power output will in fact be 567bhp, which would match the output of the engine in the F-Type Project 7 special model. Tantalisingly, this leaves room for an even more potent and extreme F-Type in the future, as 600bhp is understood to be achievable from the engine.
The F-Type SVR will be derived from the 542bhp F-Type R AWD Coupe and come equipped with all-wheel drive as standard.
