Spectacular new Jaguar F-TYPE SVR debuts at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Thursday 16th June 2016

Visitors to Goodwood’s Festival of Speed (June 23-26) will be the first to witness the new Jaguar F-TYPE SVR as it makes its UK dynamic debut this weekend.

The 200mph Jaguar will be demonstrating its supercar prowess as it makes its very first UK appearance at Goodwood’s iconic hillclimb event.

Engineered by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, the supercharged 5-litre V8 powered sportscar is the first to wear the prestigious ‘SVR’ badge and takes performance to the next level.

Capable of sprinting to 60mph from standing in just 3.5 seconds and with an exhaust note synonymous with its racing pedigree, the newest Jaguar represents the best of heritage and engineering expertise.

For visitors to the Press & Preview Day on Thursday, June 23, there is opportunity to get up close and personal with the newest “Big Cat” on the Jaguar Land Rover stand where it will take pride of place throughout the weekend.
