  • New dampers and anti-roll bars, wider tires, and lightweight 20-inch forged wheels with stiffer rear knuckles.

"Michelle Rodriguez said: “Driving this car was insane! I’ve now broken my personal speed record in the beautiful Jaguar F-TYPE SVR. Reaching 201mph felt amazing, the car drove really smoothly, all my corrections were minimal, I was super focused, and it really reacted in all the right ways. I don’t think I’d ever go this fast without a professional driver seated next to me, but oh man, it was an incredible feeling."

The F-Type SVR is certainly a capable car.  Hitting the 200 mile per hour mark is stuff of supercar dreams.

What is crazy is, for a large but not ungodly sum of money, it’s possible to own an OEM factory vehicle, capable of the same speed as a Ferrari F40.  Yes, the F40 is arguably the best supercar of all time, but the F-Type SVR brings a ferocity and roar at speed in its’ own right.
