F-Type SVR

http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news...-type-svr-official-pics-and-video

I really don't like this, in fact I've never been a fan of the F-Type since launch. This only stands to remind me of an Audi TT from the headlights down.

Safe to say I am not a fan, I don't covet it nor have a desire to own one, does nothing for me. I wouldn't even look at it at half it's price.

Harsh, but all have our opinions and this doesn't float my boat

Sorry but I'm happily sailing away with one of these. I agree that standing there with the cheque book I might have difficulty writing it to Jag instead of Porsche but I think the F Type is a lovely thing to behold.

I love the F-Type but I like Harry Metcalfe's Project 7 SVO even more:

The F-Type is best, aesthetically speaking, at the bottom of the range.

The go-faster bits do the design zero favours.

I agree.

I agree.


Me too. The Project 7 is possibly the worst of the lot.

I agree but I find it hard to say that any F type is unattractive.

The F Type is a beautiful bit of kit, but I quite agree that it is best in its purest forms.  

As per my comments in the other thread, that spoiler has no place on the back of a Jag.

My money would go either on a V6S or an R. This is a model too far.
JohnC

I have a motoring journalist friend and he reckons the V6S is all you need in the F Type. He says the R has you concentrating on all the wrong things, like self preservation, so much so that you forget to enjoy the experience.

Looks pretty spectacular to me

It would look so much better with a proper, integrated rear spoiler.
I do like the F-Type but then when I see one I always think they're way too big.
Alf McQueef

I like them plain and I like them in R spec. A lot. They do seem very big to not be a 2+2. It does sound like the V6S is the pick of the range, I must have a go in one some day...
Martin

Our FD has a black S coupe and it's a fantastic looking thing.  I think they're too artificially shouty, but otherwise I'd be very happy with one.   The spoiler in this version is just that, but the standard pop up one on the coupe doesn't look good when it's in the up position, it looks like the boot is open.

I pretty much agree with that. The V8 is pretty vicious and can be downright terrifying.

Apparantly a 2.0t four cylinder jobbie has been spotted testing at the 'ring recently...

Looks a bit aftermarket.
Be a thrilling drive though.
