Default Jaguar F-Type SVR launched at Rs. 2.45 crore

Jaguar has launched the F-Type SVR in India. The car is available in coupe and convertible variants, priced at Rs. 2.45 crore and Rs. 2.63 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi) respectively.

The SVR gets a bodykit with a carbon fibre spoiler, diffuser and front bumper, LED headlights and tail lights, 20-inch alloy wheels finished in satin grey, titanium exhaust and a tweaked suspension setup. The interior features SVR seats, aluminium paddle shifters and SVR branding.

Under the bonnet, the car gets a 5.0-litre, supercharged V8 petrol engine that delivers 567 BHP @ 6,500 rpm and 700 Nm of torque @ 3,500 rpm. The engine is coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Unlike the F-Type R which has rear-wheel drive, the SVR gets all-wheel drive with torque vectoring. Jaguar claims that the F-Type SVR coupe can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds and touch a top speed of 322 km/h. The convertible has a claimed 0-100 km/h time identical to the coupe, but a lower top speed (314 km/h).

Some of the standard features in the car includes a 380W Meridian audio system, 8-inch touchscreen infotainment with navigation, ABS with EBD, dynamic stability control, emergency brake assist, 6 airbags, front and rear parking sensors and rain-sensing wipers.

Oh Lordy! What a beautiful car! Almost as beautiful as the Aston Martin DB9 which to me is the most beautiful car in the world.

The Brits really hit it out of the park with their designs. No bling, just sheer beauty, elegance, and class.

The launch was about a month back I think and the Chennai/Coimbatore dealer has delivered the 1st and only SVR in the country to Bangalore. I hear this car has all the options checked and the on road price is circa 3.8 CR

How has the pricing been arrived at ? Isn't it around 130k usd , the prices look like Ferrari or Porsche territory to me and jags are definitely not there yet.

Expensive, but not overpriced if you consider the taxes. Sharing this useful post by Turbanator:

So for an example a car with a FOB value of $ 100000 present costs with no margins of manufacturer or dealer - just taxes will be 1,80 Cr INR including VAT

Under GST regime apart from basic custom duty of 125% rest everything including VAT will be changed to GST and rate for this is fixed at 43%. So the same car with $ 100000 will first be taxed with 125% duties plus 43% so the costs will be 2,07 Cr

This is due to GST being charged on complete value i.e basic rates plus 125% customs unlike present scenario where CVD gets charged only on basic rates. This is as per my understanding and I may be wrong so do clear this with your local dealer. They must have a clarity by now. Do update here as if this is correct then we can expect CBU to get even more expensive.

Ferraris start at least 50% higher than the SVR (except the California which is now RIP). But yes, many of Porsche's sports cars are cheaper.

Which is why I thought the AMG GT R by Mercedes was priced quite alright. It starts at about $160k. If you compare that to the Jag here, that's terrific value. Even if the Merc was priced higher, I believe it to be a superior car than the Jag here.

The car wasn't delivered to Bangalore. It was delivered to Salem by the Coimbatore dealer. Was on a visit to BLR.

Also, two cars were imported to India. Both Coupes, I believe. One delivered and other still on offer. The price is bonkers!

Anyday man, anyday . The F-Type SVR is a couple of tenths quicker to the 100, but that's all academic. Irrelevant in the real world. The AMG GT R just feels so much more 'exotic'. Plus, you get Mercedes' superior after-sales service & a 4 year maintenance pack at just 1.6 lakhs.

I had a word with JLR and they said there is no official announcement from the company yet for the SVR.
