Jaguar's Special Vehicle Operations is readying a more aggressive F-Type called the F-Type SVR. Thanks to a German importer who accidently uploaded the brochure onto the internet, we now have some juicy information about it thanks to Dutch automotive outlet Autovisie.

Let's start with the most important part, the powertrain. The SVR gets the same supercharged 5.0L V8 as the F-Type R, but produces slightly more power; 575 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque (about 516 pound-feet of torque). It should be noted that these power figures might not be the same if the SVR comes to North America. An eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive gets the power to the road.

Performance figures for the SVR are mind-boggling. 0-60 takes about 3.7 seconds and hits a top speed of 200 MPH. The convertible cuts out at 197 MPH.

The F-Type SVR gets a new front end with larger intakes. Around back is a prominent wing and diffuser. The brochure notes that the options list includes carbon ceramic brakes and a titanium exhaust.

At the moment, Jaguar is keeping its mouth shut on the existence of this model. As for when we might see it, Geneva is only a couple months away.
