Topping the F-Type range of sleek convertibles is the tire-shredding SVR. It gets the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 in its highest state of tune, the engine delivering a stout 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic and rear-biased all-wheel-drive system is standard.
The exterior is marked by stylish 20-inch wheels, while a hard-to-miss carbon-fiber rear spoiler is unique to the SVR. Front and rear parking sensors, a power-folding soft-top, and auto-dimming side mirrors are standard. Inside, an updated Touch Pro infotainment system with a ten-inch screen takes center stage, although both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are missing. Single-zone climate control, power leather seats, LED headlights, a rearview camera, and push-button ignition are all standard. For 2019, automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist are now standard, boosting the SVR’s safety credentials.
