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.

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.
