I’m quite surprised to be writing this but Jaguar has finally built something approaching supercar status with the SVR.
Surprised because as good as the F-Type is, it has never really impressed me as an out and out sports car. Something was missing – namely a very powerful engine.
Well, the SVR has nailed it. This is a seriously quick motor that will test even the most talented of drivers.
It’s not only devastatingly loud – it is sensationallly quick. And with four-wheel drive, well, there’s very little to beat it on a winding country lane.
A Porsch 911 beater? Maybe not but for most people with a passion for motoring it will come mightily close…
