What's better than a 340 hp Jaguar F-Type ? A 574 hp Jaguar F-Type. That's what Jaguar has come up with by introducing the SVR variant of their two-seater, developed by their Special Vehicle Operations division.
The sports coupe and convertible will debut in Geneva as the first Jaguar to receive the SVR treatment, following in the footsteps of
There are three important developments in the history of humanity that have marked our course from the primordial ooze to bipedal locomotion: the discovery of fire, the development of antibiotics, and the invention of the manual transmission. While a flaming F-Type would be an obvious non-starter, and even I question the utility of an automobile th
Combines cruising comfort with pleasing performance and handling, and […] reasonable on fuel when driven gently.
Jaguar launched the striking F-Type model range in 2013 to plenty of excitement. Replacing the XK in the product portfolio, F-Type was an all-aluminum performance
As a single fella’ who often partakes in the recreational consumption of barbecued beasts, Costco is my favorite store in the universe. Aside from fantastic meats, and great deals on cases of things like batteries, floor cleaner and luxury mayonnaises, it turns out that Costco sells a highly affordable bulk-pack of pre-moistened handy-wipes, which
Pulling out of the media parking lot at the 2017 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance in my white 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible, a cop was directing the mess of traffic. He leaned over and asked in a southern drawl, “Is that one of them there Ferraris?”
The “regular” V8-powered F-Type R is famously loud, but this SVR gets a lightweight tita
The single model-year special. It’s the clarion call to car collectors everywhere, a lightning bolt from above that illuminates the showroom and begs to be driven into a hermetically sealed barn until the auction gods smile down upon it 50 years hence. I seriously doubt that a similar fate awaits the 2018 Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport, however, because a
Do you smoke after sex? The old Austin Powers line would be to reply, “I don’t know – I’ve never looked.” Be that as it may, there was a time when an on-screen cigarette was shorthand to let the audience know some successful hanky-panky had occurred. Tobacco wasn’t just a way to make your shirt stink, it was both a vice and an indulgence.
It's the battle of Britain all over again: here on the winding mountain roads of British Columbia, we pit the curvaceous Jaguar F-Type versus the brutal BMW M4 . It's Spitfire versus Focke-Wulfe, turbo'd straight-six versus blown V6, the pride of Coventry versus the Bavarian Brawler. Scramble all fighters – let's get to it!
Jaguar has just announced the refreshed F-Type for 2018. The sports coupe and convertible are getting some revised styling, GoPro telemetry integration, and a new 400 Sport special edition.
On the outside, the bumper is revised with new surfaces and details to further differentiate each model. The headlights are now fully LED, and the taillights
A Jaguar F-Type test car has been spotted doing development duties with new bumpers and updated headlights. The F-Type R convertible was photographed near Jaguar's Coventry HQ showing a new bumper with more rounded corner grilles, and a horizontal slat in place of the vertically split grilles of the current car. There also appear to be new daytime
The automobile has achieved much throughout the past century, but its greatest purpose has always been creating precious memories by bringing people together.
For my lifelong best friend and I, it had been an awfully long time since we’d had a chance to do that.
Amy and I have known each other since we were seven years old, and there was a pe
Aluminum buttons and dashboard of leather
Vivid red gauges and bright summer weather
A supercharged engine with exhaust note that sings
These are a few of my favourite things
A backward facing hood and detailed bezel
A logo that’s somewhere between cat and devil
Haunches that glimmer and paintwork that gleams
These are a few of my fa
Gentlemen, start your engines.
The base Coupe at $72,900 Canadian gets a 340 hp, 332 lb-ft supercharged 3.0L V6. Move up to this $84,900 S Coupe and the same V6 is tuned to 380 hp and 339 lb-ft while adding adaptive suspension, bigger brakes, a mechanical limited-slip differential, launch control and active sport exhaust. These two coupes are me
So you’re Jaguar, and you’ve struck gold by releasing a car in the F-Type that’s actually managed to go shot for shot with the big guns in the sports car market from Porsche. They, you add AWD and a screaming V8, and kick things up yet another notch. What’s next?
Well, first of all, you have to add new letters to the name. “F-Type S”? Taken. “R”
Jaguar is getting set to turn out its "fastest series production vehicle," the F-Type SVR by dropping news of it in advance of the car's unveiling at the Geneva auto show next month.
SVR is the abbreviation for the brand's Special Vehicle Operations group. We're still trying to figure out what the R stands for, too... Less confusing is that grou
