Similar to the F-Type R, the F-Type SVR derives its power from a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine developed by the automaker. However, the F-Type SVR's engine is more potent, generating an output of 575 hp at 6,500 rpm and 516 lb-ft of torque from 3,500-5,000 rpm, which is 25 hp (6,500 rpm) and 14 lb-ft (2,500-5,500 rpm) more than the F-Type R. The engine calibration for the F-Type SVR is based on the F-Type Project 7, according to Jaguar.
In order to maintain optimal engine temperature, the F-Type SVR sports larger front bumper air intakes, revised charge air coolers, and redesigned hood vents. The F-Type SVR's new lightweight Inconel titanium exhaust system, which features a unique split muffler design instead of the F-Type R's stainless steel single-box design, also helps to reduce backpressure and withstand higher temperatures. Additionally, it weighs 35 pounds less than its predecessor and allows for a more aerodynamic rear undertray.
