• Check out the Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible Prototypes testing in the Rocky Mountains

    These Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible prototypes we caught resting in the Rocky Mountains and, even heavily disguised, they look sensational. That’s the head-scratcher, why do they need to be so disguised when what they are hiding is a mild, mid cycle refresh? We expect to see a few cosmetic changes along with some real updates under the skin and in the cockpit.

    It’s possible that one of these Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible prototypes may be testing the 400 horsepower version of the supercharged, 3-liter V6 (which normally puts out 380 hp). If it is the 400 hp model, it’s a limited run vehicle which is slated to be produced for one year only.

    The interior upgrades should consist of lighter materials and the addition of new tech. Jaguar is taking a page from Ford’s book and has designed a parking system that works much like Ford’s parking assist system. They may be testing the new ReRun system. ReRun connect telemetry data with a camera that views ahead when the driver wants tons of data (everything from throttle position to gear selection) and wants it on camera to review – or to brag.

    The TFL team is looking forward to learning more about the upcoming Jaguar F-Type SVR Convertible. We’re hoping to learn more soon.

    Here’s the video!

    1. Jag u ar (3 syllables please) made it’s bones with six cylinder engines. I believe the sixes have a long way to go as far as performance is concerned. I hope your information is correct.

      1. Not sure who your correcting also the inline six from the supra the inline six from the old gtr the v6 from the new gtr what they all have in common is they put out more or significantly more power then their v8 or 12 cylinder counter parts
