Jaguar South Africa’s new F-Pace SVR is now available in the country. Still powered by the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 gasoline engine, the performance-oriented SUV would not have lost any of the appeal that made the first F-Pace SVR so successful.
While the power remains unchanged at 405 kW, the torque increases by 20 Nm to reach 700 Nm. The end result is an SUV that will go from 0-100 km / h in 4.0 seconds – 0.3 seconds faster than before – and will peak at 286 km / h. The automaker implemented its eight-speed torque converter transmission in the new car to better withstand the power outputs of the engine. All-wheel drive remains standard.
The 395mm (front) and 396mm (rear) two-part disc brakes provide stopping power and are now supported by a new integrated Power Booster that shortens the brake pedal stroke.
