LONDON -- Jaguar will next month unveil a high-performance version of its F-Type two-seat model. The F-Type SVR will become the brand's fastest and most powerful production road car.
The F-Type SVR's supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine has been upgraded to develop 567 hp, up from 542 hp in the R model, the current fastest F-Type.
The F-Type SVR will debut at the Geneva auto show on March 1, Jaguar said in a statement.
The car sprints to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds or from 0-100kph (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds. The coupe's top speed is 200 mph (322kph) and the convertible's is 195 mph (314kph).
Jaguar launched the convertible version of the F-Type in 2012 and the coupe version a year later.
The two-seat sports car is the latest product from Jaguar Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations division, which was established in 2014 to create high-performance and bespoke vehicles for wealthier customers.
The first JLR vehicle from the unit was the 550-hp Range Rover Sport SVR. The division also developed the Jaguar F-Type Project 7, which is limited to 250 examples.
Last year, Jaguar sold 11,662 F-Types globally, up 1 percent on the year before, according to company figures. European sales of the car were down 2 percent to 4,563, according to JATO Dynamics.
The F-Type SVR will go on sale in the summer as a coupe or a convertible, with UK prices starting at 110,000 pounds for the coupe and 115,485 pounds for the convertible.
U.S. prices will start at $125,950 for the coupe and $128,800 for the convertible.
In Germany the coupe will cost 138,400 euros and the convertible will be priced at 145,000 euros.
