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.

Piemonte Travel – Where Angels Go

Italy – the country well known for football, good food and best dressed people. Besides that, they produce wonderful wine and the country comes up with the most spectacular landscapes.
 
I love to travel to Italy. Green hills and beautiful villages where ever your eyes go. It’s an endless paradise where mother earth shows all it’s beauty.
 
Hotel Review – Antico Borgo Monchiero
 
The hotel is located in Monchiero, which is very close to Barolo. It is wonderfully located up on a hill. You’re driving along these villages and hills, and suddenly you see it up there, this old monastery where the monchs were living. And the sun reflects within the walls of the church next to the hotel.

 Orange stonewalls, yellow roofs and green grass all over the place.

The eye-watering view from the hotel room. On beginning of the horizon you can see the alps. And you you’re sitting there, asking yourself: what a genius is god? how endlessly perfect is his mind?

Even the other villages are coming up with some really impressive castles, churches and much more!

Winetasting – Cavallotto
 
I grew up in a winecollector’s family, I can’t describe the love I feel for a good glass of wine.
The area around Barolo is very famous for the selection of wine growing there.
 
Winetasting Piemont

Before travelling to Piemont I have phoned up my aunt to advise where to go and what to taste.

Barolo Wine Piemont

And it was worth doing this. It is simply spectacular to feel the energy of such a place. The barrels are huge and up to 40 tonns heavy, that’s impressive!

Barrel Piemont

I use to close my eyes when tasting a wine. In this very moment, everything else disappears. All around me is gone. It’s just you and the glass. It’s you and the hours and months of effort, it is you and the years of steel and wood barrel the wine has been in.

The barolo comes up with a bright spectrum of wonderful tastes and odours. Brilliant.

Must Seen Cities
 
Cherasco – City of the stars and famous for the delicous chocolate
 
Turin – The word is celtic and means ‘mountains’. You will understand and feel why, when you’re there.

 

Turin Mountain View
Barolo – The place where one of the best wines in the world is coming from. Plenty of wonderful restaurants and wine bars.
 
Barbaresco – A few years ago, I had the best wine in my life. A vintage Barbaresco, I hope I will find it again one day.
