200MPH Jaguar SVR roars in iconic Park Avenue Tunnel in New York

New York City’s Park Avenue Tunnel was last week closed off to the public as British car manufacturer Jaguar showed off the truly distinctive sound of the new F-TYPE SVR ahead of the 2016 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS –  Mar 25 to Apr 3).

Along with its performance and handling, the sound is one of the most loved features of Jaguar’s F-TYPE.

The tunnel, which passes under seven blocks of the iconic Park Avenue area in Manhattan, provided a truly unique environment to experience the even more distinctive, purposeful, harder edged sound delivered by the new Titanium and Inconel exhaust system, enhancing the F-TYPE SVR’s performance character still further.

The F-TYPE SVR also features the latest evolution of Jaguar’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 to deliver increased engine output and the ultimate in performance and driver reward.

The F-TYPE SVR is the first Jaguar SVR and the fastest F-TYPE ever with a top speed of 200mph. The F-TYPE SVR has been developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations to be lighter, quicker, faster and more powerful while remaining tractable and useable day-to-day.

The public will be able to view the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR from tomorrow as it makes its North American debut at the 2016 NYIAS at Manhattan’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The Coupé and Convertible editions of the car will both be on show at the Jaguar Land Rover stand.
