2018 Jaguar F-Type SVR

Jaguar offers its F-Type in many flavors, both roadster and coupe, rear-wheel and all-wheel drive, and engines now ranging from a four-cylinder all the way up to a V8. The F-Type SVR is the most powerful version, and tuned for the highest performance.

Despite its sporting chops, the F-Type SVR also delivers a comfortable ride and good road manners for the mundane driving tasks that will take up 99 percent of its time.

The F-Type SVR is very well-equipped as standard, although a $12,000 ceramic brake package is available. That option only makes sense for buyers who will be putting the car on the track.

The interior is very well appointed, lending to the F-Type SVR's luxury appeal, but the dashboard electronics have slipped behind the times.
