Why I Love The Jaguar F-Type SVR So Much

What’s the best car I drove so far?

Yes, that’s probably the most popular question I’m being asked by my followers. But it’s not so easy to answer. There are plenty of amazing cars and at the end of the day it’s all about your taste and needs.

Let me explain that a bit… Arguments like safety, understatement are important to you? You might want to get a Volvo. You need loads of space for your family, a car to go skiing but still it has to be classy? The Range Rover might be a good advise. Or, you’re into good-looking performance cars? McLaren is producing some really epic supercars.

The perfect mix might be owning a ‘everyday-car’ and a sports car for the week-end.

Jaguar F-Type – is it my favorite sportscar below 200k?

I didn’t drive them all yet – but so far, it’s the Jaguar F-Type SVR. No other car I drove, is such a harmony of excitement, power and class. It’s this very moment before unlocking the Jaguar F-Type, get in and start the engine. The sharp and aggressive look of the SVR, but still this glance of a typical Jag. And once you unlocked it, its sound just leaves you goosebumps. To my taste, the Jaguar F-Type is simply unrivaled. Let’s analyze this, the Porsche 911 4s costs you around 190k, the same price for less power and excitement.

That’s one of many reasons I can’t wait to drive it again – to celebrate that we got up early on a Sunday morning to film the Jaguar F-Type SVR with a drone. Of course, we will keep improving our videos, but I’m super happy with our first result.

Thanks to my friend Kevin Kyburz for getting up early on a Sunday morning to film the Jag!

Jaguar F-Type SVR – Hell Of A Ride!

Jaguar F-Type SVR – Introduction

Mephisto has interesting quote in Goethe’s Faust that somehow reminds me of the Jaguar F-Type SVR.

I am the Spirit that denies!
And rightly too; for all that doth begin
Should rightly to destruction run;
‘Twere better then that nothing were begun.
Thus everything that you call Sin,
Destruction – in a word, as Evil represent-
That is my own, real element.

Jaguar has recently presented their yet most powerful, fastest and loudest series model in history. Ladies and gentlemen, I think the Jaguar F-Type SVR has been built directly in hell. But let me explain why…

No question, the F-Type belongs to my favorite cars since I drove it up to Gstaad. Already the F-Type S is a lot of fun and still one of the sexiest cars ever. But now Jaguar tops it again. Lately, Jag presented their yet fastest series model in history, the Jaguar F-Type SVR. It’s 50 Kg lighter, 25hp have been added and the exhaust noise just leaves you numb after a tunnel.

In figures? The F-Type SVR contains a supercharged 5.0 litre V8 that produces 575bhp and 700nm of torque. That throws you from 0 – 100km/h in only 3,7 seconds with an earsplitting exhaust noise, I love this car!

The barking F-Type is fantastic to drive. The brakes have been adjusted, the eight-speed gearbox revised which turns the driving experience into a gentleman’s dream. The cat-like look with the fancy air-ducts and the aggressive spoiler is just tremendous.

Jaguar F-Type SVR – Power meets comfort

I’m glad to tell you, it’s super comfy to drive on holiday with the F-Type SVR. The coupé version provides enough space to spend a week in Italy (including wine shopping, luggage for two people). The seats are very convenient and the car comes up with more options than you find in a usual sports car. Seat heating, cruise control, rear view cam, parking sensors, sat nav, a super entertainment and many more fancy options.

Piemonte with the Jaguar F-Type SVR

What a dream to drive through a region like the Piemonte. Vineyards where ever you look at, the alps in the background and you’re cruising with this fire spitting car. We had such a wonderful time and really enough space for a week of holiday.

Besides… check out our Hotel recommendation. We keep going to this amazing place.
