Meet the first ever member of Jaguar’s PACE family to receive SVR treatment – the new F-PACE SVR.

With a 5.0-litre V8 supercharged engine pushing 405kW, this is Jaguar’s highest performance SUV. Engineered by Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) in the UK, the SVR is capable of launching from 0-100km/h in a blistering 4.3 seconds and on to a top speed of 283km/h.

The range-topping F-PACE features a host of unique performance enhancing upgrades including a special aerodynamic package with larger air intakes at the front and side fender vents. An exclusive bonnet also features vents to help extract air from the engine bay, providing visual evidence of the SVR’s dynamic intent.

Wheel arch extensions and lower body mouldings provide a low-slung muscularity, while at the rear, a unique spoiler is joined by a new bumper housing the quad tailpipes of an Active Exhaust system which offers a free-flowing and more charismatic soundtrack at the push of a button.

SVR-specific lightweight forged 21- and optional 22-inch alloy wheels are wider at the rear by 25mm compared to the front and contribute to the SVR’s enhanced handling. The 22-inch wheels are 2.4kg lighter on the front and 1.7kg lighter on the rear and are designed to deliver greater airflow to larger 395mm front and 396mm rear brake discs.

Inside, the F-PACE SVR features slimline front seats that provide enhanced support and are upholstered with signature lozenge quilting with an embossed SVR logo. Deep rear seats echo the heavily sculpted designs up front and an SVR-branded steering wheel features special aluminium paddle shifters. 

The SVR sacrifices nothing in terms of practicality and space, and features the same 650-litre loadspace as the rest of the F-PACE family. Jaguar’s latest SUV keeps passengers connected and entertained on the move with 4G WiFi for up to eight devices and is equipped with an advanced Touch Pro infotainment system with a 10-inch touchscreen and 12.3-inch HD instrument cluster.

The F-PACE SVR is priced from R1,511,500 and comes with Jaguar’s standard 5-year/100,000km Care Plan.
