Pretoria - New Jaguar F-Type SVR buyers can now specify a personalisation package for the 322km/h all-weather supercar, adding distinctive racing-inspired visual touches at no extra cost.

Special Vehicle Operations’ Jaguar designers led by Director of Design, Ian Callum, and its bespoke vehicle personalisation team, have created a Graphic Pack which adds a compelling dose of visual muscle to the exhilarating all-wheel drive F-Type SVR.

Accentuating the F-Type SVR’s lift and drag-reducing aerodynamics package of front bumper and splitter, flat underfloor, carbon fibre active rear wing and rear venturi are a contrast grille surround, mirror caps and aero winglets. Bonnet and sill decals with ‘575’ graphics signify the 5.0-litre Supercharged V8’s (423kW) output, with carbon bonnet louvres and side ingots reinforcing the high-performance theme.

The SVR Graphic Pack is available in six unique colourways:

Yulong White with Firenze Red accents, Santorini Black and Gold, Corris Grey and Ultra Blue, Caldera Red and Black, Ultra Blue and Corris Grey and Indus Silver and Black

All feature lightweight 20-inch forged wheels and colour-matched brake calipers (Red or Black). Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes are available as an option, but feature yellow calipers.

Inside, the Graphic Pack adds illuminated ‘575’ tread plates and a commissioning plaque that’s only fitted to cars specified with the Graphic Pack.

0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds

Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said: "The F-Type SVR is one of the most dynamic, dramatic and fastest road cars ever created by Jaguar. The Graphic Pack perfectly complements its sporting character with a touch of heritage."

Developed by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division, the F-TYPE SVR is designed to be the fastest and most powerful model, while remaining usable day-to-day. The 322km/h all-weather supercar will accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds.

F-Type SVR’s chassis features uprated dampers and anti-roll bars, stiffer rear suspension knuckles, and wider tyres – 265/35 R20 and 305/30 R20 – giving it a distinctive character with finely honed responses. The 423kW Supercharged V8 emits a purposeful and harder edged sound through a lightweight titanium and Inconel exhaust system says the automaker.
