ALL NEW – SVO PUTS ITS MAGIC TOUCH INTO A V8 SUPERCHARGED F-PACE …

The Jaguar F-PACE, 2017 World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year, gets the SVR treatment to make it the fastest and most powerful F-PACE yet, with an enhanced chassis and aerodynamics for maximum driver reward in all conditions.

Engineered by Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), with a 44% uplift in power, the F-PACE SVR’s 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine produces 550PS and 680Nm, enabling it to reach 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.3 seconds) with a top speed of 176mph (283km/h).

“The F-PACE SVR delivers the handling and agility to match its performance. Everything from the steering to the bespoke suspension set-up has been tuned specifically for our performance SUV and the result is a vehicle that lives up to the promise of both the F-PACE and SVR names.”
Mike Cross, Chief Engineer, Vehicle Integrity, Jaguar Land Rover

Aerodynamic enhancements include larger air intakes at the front and side fender vents that lower pressure in the wheelarches, reduce lift and provide additional cooling while also optimising high-speed stability. In addition, unique wheel arch extensions and lower body mouldings provide a low-slung muscularity that sets the SVR apart.

An exclusive SVR bonnet features vents to help extract hot air from the engine bay and provide visual evidence of the SVR’s dynamic intent.

At the rear, a unique spoiler is joined by a new bumper housing the quad tailpipes of the Active Exhaust system. The bumper incorporates side strakes that aid aerodynamic performance by smoothing airflow away from the rear of the vehicle.

 

Inside, the F-PACE SVR features slimline performance front seats that provide enhanced lateral support and have signature lozenge quilting and embossed SVR logo. In addition, unique rear seats echo the heavily sculpted designs up front and the SUV’s sports car character is underlined by the Sport Shift Selector. Finally, the SVR branded steering wheel features tactile aluminium paddle shifters.

MITCH EVAN TARGETTING FOR WIN FOR PANASONIC JAGUAR – Autosport

Mitch Evans has targeted scoring Jaguar’s first Formula E victory after a charging drive in last weekend’s Punta del Este race.

Evans finished fourth after being demoted to 16th on the grid for an incorrect weight distribution on one of his cars, which followed a battery change between the two practice sessions in Uruguay.

He eventually finished just four seconds off the lead after battling his way up the order.

“The new battery was 3kg lighter but it was a 300g thing [that led to the incorrect weight distribution],” Evans, who scored Jaguar’s only Formula E podium to date at the Hong Kong season opener, told Autosport.

“It wasn’t an advantage but the rules are the rules, and I respect the stewards being consistent with it. We can’t argue with it – that’s the way it rolls.

“We had a good fast car, and I’m happy to be heading to the next few races hopefully in a position to fight for the win.

“I heard just before the drivers’ parade that we were disqualified, which is never something you want to hear after a good qualifying.

“Starting 16th wasn’t anywhere near where we should have been – obviously we weren’t within the rules, but not intentionally so. It was a very small margin.”

The race featured a tense battle for victory between Techeetah’s Jean-Eric Vergne and Audi Sport driver Lucas di Grassi, but the only lead change occurred when the frontrunners came in to pit and were briefly passed by cars running a longer first stint.

But Evans made up 12 positions on his charge, which included a dramatic swoop on Mahindra driver Felix Rosenqvist for what turned out to be fourth at the track’s high-speed Turn 13 right-hander.

When asked if he expected to get as far as he did, Evans said: “Not today, to be honest.

“Other circuits are easier to pass on, such as Santiago and maybe Mexico. It was tricky so I wasn’t expecting a top-four finish.

“But when the car’s quick, and I think I gelled well with the circuit, you can really make some good progress and that’s what we were able to achieve today.

“Obviously the guys at the front, the speed difference is very small. And we all know that JEV is one of the hardest guys to pass.”

EXCLUSIVE – BRITISH GT F-PACE RACER BREAKS COVER

Our English ace photographer has excelled again – and in our next edition we have all of his exclusive images and report

On what you say?  Well, Martin took himself to Donington Park race circuit this week where the new Invictus Jaguar F-Type GT racer appeared in public for the first time and ran serious laps of the fast historic circuit.

Martin reported it ran well, and seemed to have little time off the track for attention.

It is early days, of course, but the car looks stunning in action – and who knows what it could lead to?

Of course, we will all love the deep V8 rumble coming from those four huge exhaust pipes …

Don’t miss Martin’s sensational images of the car in the garage and up close, with more running shots of it on the track.

If you need a photographer for any type of work in England, I thoroughly recommend Martin Dunning.

You can contact him at martin@mdunningphotography.co.uk

… oh, and happy 33rd birthday to the man himself!
