New Jaguar F-TYPE SVR buyers can now specify a personalisation package for the 200mph all-weather supercar, adding distinctive racing-inspired visual touches at no extra cost.

Special Vehicle Operations’ Jaguar designers led by Director of Design, Ian Callum, and its bespoke vehicle personalisation team, have created a Graphic Pack which adds a compelling dose of visual muscle to the exhilarating all-wheel drive F-TYPE SVR.

Accentuating the F-TYPE SVR’s lift and drag-reducing aerodynamics package of front bumper and splitter, flat underfloor, carbon fibre active rear wing and rear venturi are a contrast grille surround, mirror caps and aero winglets. Bonnet and sill decals with ‘575’ graphics signify the 5.0-litre Supercharged V8’s outstanding 575PS (423kW) power output, with carbon bonnet louvres and side ingots reinforcing the high-performance theme.

The F-TYPE SVR Graphic Pack is available in six unique colourways:

  • Yulong White with Firenze Red accents
  • Santorini Black and Gold
  • Corris Grey and Ultra Blue
  • Caldera Red and Black
  • Ultra-Blue and Corris Grey
  • Indus Silver and Black

All feature lightweight 20-inch forged wheels and colour-matched brake calipers (Red or Black). Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes are available as an option, but feature yellow calipers.

Inside, the Graphic Pack adds illuminated ‘575’ tread plates and a commissioning plaque that’s only fitted to cars specified with the Graphic Pack.

Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said: “The F-TYPE SVR is one of the most dynamic, dramatic and fastest road cars ever created by Jaguar. The Graphic Pack perfectly complements its sporting character with a touch of heritage.”

Developed by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division, the F-TYPE SVR is designed to be the fastest and most powerful F-TYPE, while remaining usable day-to-day. The 200mph all-weather supercar will accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 3.7 seconds, yet rewards drivers with surefooted handling, crisp steering and powerful braking.

F-TYPE SVR’s chassis features uprated dampers and anti-roll bars, stiffer rear suspension knuckles, and wider tyres – 265/35 R20 and 305/30 R20 – giving it a distinctive character with finely honed responses. The 575PS Supercharged V8 emits a purposeful and harder edged sound through a lightweight titanium and Inconel exhaust system.

Pricing for the 2019 Jaguar F-TYPE SVR begins at $295 950 + ORC in Australia. Configure your F-TYPE SVR at www.jaguar.com.au. The SVR Graphic Pack is available for a limited time to Australian customers as a no-cost option.

.A Jaguar F-TYPE SVR with Graphic Pack will be on display at the Geneva International Motor Show from 6-18 March 2018.

Panasonic Jaguar Racing returned to Mexico City and achieved their highest ever Formula E points haul to move to third in the team standings. The successful race concludes a historic week for Jaguar following the launch of the new all-electric Jaguar I-PACE.

 Brazilian Nelson Piquet Jr showcased his consistency and race craft with another strong performance. The team made a strategic decision to keep him out on track for one more lap compared to the rest of the field, giving Nelson more usable energy for the second half of the race. Nelson battled it out for a podium finish with Sebastian Buemi but settled for fourth and more valuable points.

 Mitch Evans started in 12th position, and after a strong start in his Jaguar I-TYPE 2 the Kiwi driver rapidly moved into the top ten. A quick pit-stop put him in front of his team-mate but Nelson was able to safely overtake with more energy available and Mitch then had a clean run to the end finishing in sixth.

 The British team’s performance in Mexico City demonstrates a fast, consistent and reliable performance in their second season in the ABB FIA Formula E Championships. Panasonic Jaguar Racing move to third place in the team standings with 74 points. Both drivers have held their positions in the driver’s championship with Nelson in fifth and Mitch in seventh place.

James Barclay, Team Director Panasonic Jaguar Racing: “It’s a strong result for the team, the best ever points finish for Panasonic Jaguar Racing. Great progress was made by both drivers, demonstrating the speed of the Jaguar I-TYPE 2 and team this season. To come away from Mexico sitting in third position in the team’s championship, it is clear that we have made huge steps forward and a podium will come soon. We only have a short break before we get back on track in Uruguay and we will renew our focus pushing forward and securing more points.”

Nelson Piquet Jr, #3: It was a solid race. Depending on the drivers around you, it’s important to make a decision about whether to risk overtaking or conserve energy. A better starting position would have given us a podium, so this will be the aim for Punta del Este in a few days time. I believe the Jaguar I-TYPE 2 is the most consistent car on the track and hopefully soon we will be the quickest as we move towards a top three finish.”

 Mitch Evans, #20: “It was a good race for us. I started 12th and finished sixth so I’m definitely happy with that. It was a tough qualifying so I am excited to get another double points finish here in Mexico. The crowd in Mexico City was even bigger than last year and it was a great atmosphere to race in. I’m leaving now for the Geneva Motor Show and the debut of the Jaguar I-PACE before flying out to Punta.  I’m really looking forward to my first visit and racing again so soon.

On Saturday 17 March Panasonic Jaguar Racing will race in Punta del Este for the sixth E-Prix of the ABB FIA Formula E Championships.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls – the most radical Jaguar ever created it now with us.

British comedian and actor, Jack Whitehall, self-proclaimed EV enthusiast and TV presenter Jonny Smith and American tech guru iJustine, hosted a special live show as the first I-PACE rolled off the production line in Plant Graz, Austria, one of the world’s most advanced EV production facilities, where the car will be built.

When it came to explaining the technology behind I-PACE, host comedian Jack Whitehall enlisted the help of Jaguar’s newest vehicle experts, nine year olds Lola and Hudson. Watch it here

Ahead of this weekend’s FIA Formula E race at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez E-Prix circuit in Mexico City, the Jaguar I-PACE was pitted against both the Tesla Model X 75D and 100D in a 0mph-60mph-0mph head-to-head challenge. Panasonic Jaguar Racing’s Mitch Evans got behind the wheel to showcase the acceleration and braking power of Jaguar’s first EV against the Tesla models, driven by former IndyCar Series champion Tony Kanaan.

The I-PACE has a state-of-the-art 90kWh Lithium-ion battery and offers sports car performance of 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds alongside the practicality of a 480km range (WLTP cycle) and 0-80 per cent charging time of 40 minutes (100kW DC). Allied with its concept car looks and next-generation artificial intelligence, it is set to be the perfect everyday EV consumers have been waiting for.

Fully Charged’ the documentary aired at the end of the broadcast, giving a behind-the-scenes insight into the creators and makers of I-PACE. Watch it here

Designed and engineered in the UK, the I-PACE will be built in Plant Graz, Austria, as part of Jaguar Land Rover’s manufacturing partnership with Magna Steyr. It joins Jaguar’s growing family of SUVs, alongside the all-new E-PACE and multiple award-winning F-PACE.

I-PACE receives its public debut at Geneva Motor Show on 6th March.

I-PACE is now available to order and in Australia it is priced from $119,000 + ORC (I-PACE S). In addition to S, SE and HSE derivatives, there will also be a limited number of First Edition I-PACE models available.

All variants of the new Jaguar E-PACE have achieved an industry-recognised 5 star ANCAP safety rating.

Jaguar’s first compact SUV has been tested to provide the highest standard of safety, with high scores of 86% for adult occupant protection, 87% for child occupant protection and 77% for pedestrian protection.

The E-PACE performed well in the side and frontal test for both adult and child occupants. In the pedestrian tests, E-PACE scored highly, particularly for the protection of a pedestrian’s head in the event of a collision.

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) is Australasia’s leading independent vehicle safety advocate. ANCAP recommends 5 star rated cars.

“The Jaguar E-PACE scored well across all assessment areas and features a ‘pop-up’ bonnet and external airbag to improve head protection for struck pedestrians,” said ANCAP Chief Executive, Mr James Goodwin.

E-PACE features a comprehensive suite of standard safety systems, including Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. The advanced technology is able to detect a collision risk with cars or pedestrians in the road ahead and automatically apply the brakes.

In safety assist tests, E-PACE performed well with a score of 72%. The Autonomous Emergency Braking system demonstrated its high reliability when tested at highway speeds of 80km/h.

Jaguar Land Rover Australia Managing Director, Matthew Wiesner, said: “Safety is one of our core customer principles and so we’re thrilled that the Jaguar E-PACE has been recognised by ANCAP for its five-star safety credentials. The all-new Jaguar E-PACE compact SUV will bring many new customers to the Jaguar brand in Australia, particularly young families, so safety is an absolute priority.”

By pairing advanced crash protection with active safety systems, E-PACE helps prevent accidents while providing superior passenger safety in the event of a collision.

Advanced driver assistance systems available on the Jaguar E-PACE include:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection: provides an audible forward collision warning and should the driver not take action, applies the brakes to help reduce the severity of a collision or prevent it
  • Matrix-Laser LED headlights: use Intelligent High Beam Assist (IHBA) and Adaptive Front Lighting (AFL) to split the main beam into imperceptible vertical strips that maximise the light around oncoming traffic while casting a shadow in front of oncoming vehicles to prevent dazzling
  • Lane Keep Assist: detects unintentional lane drift and applies corrective counter-steering to maintain lane position
  • Driver Condition Monitor: senses driver fatigue by monitoring steering, brake and accelerator inputs to provide alerts when tiredness is detected
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Queue Assist: automatically reduces speed should the vehicle ahead slow down and, once the road ahead is clear, will resume its pre-set speed
  • Pedestrian Airbag: deploys an exterior airbag in the event of a collision to protect pedestrians and cyclists from contact with the bonnet and windscreen
  • Reverse Traffic Monitor: warns the driver of vehicles, pedestrians or other hazards approaching from either side of the vehicle, providing audio and visual alerts
  • Blind Spot Assist: alerts the driver to vehicles in, or fast approaching, the blind spot with a flashing warning light and will guide the car safely away if the vehicle begins to change lanes
