TIME STANDS STILL FOR NO MAN SAYS THE OLD PROVERB, AND that certainly applies to all models of vehicles no matter the make! The spectacular top-of-the-range F-PACE SVR seems like it is still a newly introduced model, but already it has been up-graded within the first twelve months of its introduction.
If it was great before, it must be even greater now! The new Jaguar F-PACE SVR is faster, more dynamic and more refined and is elevated to another level thanks to the latest enhancements from the Jaguar Special Vehicles (SV) team.
The up-dates are delivered by a combination of new hardware and the move to Jaguar’s advanced Electronic Vehicle Architecture – dubbed EVA 2.0 – and include motorsport-inspired design details, a luxurious and performance-focused interior and the latest connected convenience technologies.
Michael van der Sande, Managing Director, Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations, said: “The original F-PACE SVR was incredibly characterful, well received by customers and has gone on to become the highest-selling Jaguar SV product ever. The new version builds on its success, by making numerous detailed improvements that combine to raise the bar in the high-performance SUV segment.”
It is available exclusively with Jaguar’s 5.0 litre V8 Supercharged petrol engine, which produces 550PS and 700Nm torque – an increase of 20Nm. This uplift in torque delivers enhanced performance, with the F-PACE SVR capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds), three-tenths faster than before, with a top speed of 178 mph (286 km/h) – an increase of two mph.
The powertrain features the same torque converter used in the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 super saloon, to withstand the higher loads produced. As well as the improved torque and acceleration, CO2 emissions are reduced from 281 g/km to 275 g/km with fuel economy now up to 23.1 mpg (12.2 litre 100 km).

SERIOUS UP-DATES MAKE IT BETTER - AND IT'S DIESEL F-pace next level
THE F-PACE IS JAGUAR'S BEST SELLING MODEL AND continues to improve in all ways. The 2021 upgrades are sensational to the point where it now feels close to an XJ from the driver or passenger seats. It is that luxurious. It is multi-purpose too, so aside from family duties, it will handle the dirty stuff like a dedicated SUV and, encouragingly, Jaguar really has got its head around what the F-PACE was capable of achieving from its inception.
