570bhp Jaguar F-Pace SVR spotted winter testing ahead of 2017 reveal

The Jaguar F-Pace SVR, a super-hot version of Jaguar’s first SUV model, has been spotted winter testing ahead of its anticipated 2017 reveal.

This second sighting is of a model wearing US-spec lights, and it comes close to six months after the first F-Pace SVR was seen high-speed testing at the Nürburgring.

Bodywork fitted to both of these cars suggests that Jaguar’s production Porsche Macan Turbo rival will get an aggressive front spoiler, along with two huge air intakes either side of the front numberplate.

The model also gets larger diameter wheels and wider tyres to signify its extra potency.

The F-Pace SVR will share its engine with the F-Type SVR, meaning there’s a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 under the bonnet with up to 567bhp and 516lb ft on tap.

A 0-62mph time of less than 4.0sec is likely, which would beat the Macan Turbo and its 4.4sec sprint. It’s therefore probable that the F-Pace SVR will be the quickest mid-sized SUV on the market.

The F-Pace SVR is expected to cost from about £60,000, which is almost double the price of the regular base model.
