Special Vehicle Operations
The development of “hot” versions of Coupé and Roadster engaged Special Vehicle Operations division, established in 2014 and is located near the headquarters of Jaguar Land Rover.
During modifications SVR-versions of the model have received a number of structural changes designed to improve aerodynamics and cooling of individual elements, as well as to reduce the weight of the vehicle. These adjustments resulted in a slight increase in the length of the body.
“Charged” Jaguar received a special configuration front bumper, promoting a better heat dissipation from the engine compartment area and on the brakes. Better cooling is provided by air intakes increased size. They together with an integrated bumper splitter contribute to the proper distribution of air flow, reduces the aerodynamic drag. An important role in the removal of heat and to improve aerodynamics play the vents on the bonnet and the front wings.
Another feature of the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR exterior – a large rear spoiler, surpassing the size and efficiency of the wing of other modifications. In normal driving conditions the spoiler extends automatically at 70 mph. Selecting Dynamic mode allows you to raise the spoiler, after which it will be in the operating position at any speed.
