Earlier this year, Jaguar showed off the significantly refreshed 2021 F-Pace. Now, we know what will be coming to its highest-performance variant, the 2021 Jaguar F-Pace SVR.

"The original F-PACE SVR was incredibly characterful, well received by customers and has gone on to become the highest-selling Jaguar SV product ever," said Michael van der Sande, Managing Director, Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations. "The new version builds on this success, by making numerous detailed improvements that combine to raise the bar in the high-performance SUV segment."

The F-Pace SVR keeps most of the interior and exterior changes from the traditional F-Pace design. The sporty mode has a front end influenced by SV motorsport experience. It reduces lift by 35 percent, lowers drag, and adds to the SUV's aggressive stance.

Jaguar has kept the F-Pace SVR's 550-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine but revised its torque curve so that it has a new high of 516 pound-feet of torque and a higher track speed - 178 mph. The engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The SUV's new Dynamic Launch function cuts the car's zero to 60 mph time to just 3.8 seconds.The Dynamic drive mode features unique tuning for a more engaging drive experience.

Stopping power comes from an improved cooling and brake pads. The SUV's new integrated power booster and retuned pedal feel work together to give drivers more confidence.

Jaguar has given the model a new electronic power-assistance steering system to deliver a better connection between the vehicle and driver. All-wheel drive is standard.

"The move to Jaguar's new Electrical Vehicle Architecture gave us the opportunity to revisit the calibration of every single component, so we took the chance to fine-tune the driving experience to make it feel even more focused and even more refined," said Paul Barritt, F-PACE SVR Chief Programme Engineer, Jaguar SV.

With the model's refresh is a redesigned cabin. Upscale materials and fresh, premium design highlight the interior. Seat and door inserts are finished in Alcantara, with elements such as the central cubby and leather midroll are wrapped in Windsor leather. The 12.3-inch HD Interactive Driver Display is wrapped in Alcantara with ebony stitching, while aluminum patterned finishers feature as standard with open-pore carbon fiber available as an option.

Buyers can opt for semi-aniline leather sports seats with heritage logo-inspired diamond embroidery across the front shoulder section. An embossed SVR logo on the headrests adds a flourish.

The Drive Selector has a more performance-focused feel. It's finished in dimpled leather with heritage logo-inspired detailing and debossed SVR logo. The new SVR split-rim steering wheel is finished with tactile zinc-alloy shift paddles, providing heightened driver engagement when making manual gear changes.

The model comes stand with Jaguar Land Rover's Pivi Pro infotainment system which includes over-the-air update capability. The model also features active noise cancellation, wireless device charging, advanced driver assistance systems, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

James Bond and British vehicles go together like bread and butter. The spy's most well-known rides come from Aston Martin, but Land Rover isn't sitting out on the action. The 25th film in the Bond series, No Time To Die, premiers in just a few weeks, and with it, a new special edition Land Rover Defender. Land Rover's SV Bespoke division created the special Defender, which in addition to making an appearance on the silver screen, will be on sale for a limited run to 300 lucky Bond fans willing to shell out the cash.

The villainous Defender is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 that produces 518 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, and Land Rover says the powertrain is strong enough to push the hefty off-roader to 60 mph from a stop in just 5.1 seconds. The V8 is a recent addition to the Defender line, and comes paired here with unique suspension and transmission tuning, bespoke spring and damper rates, and a new electronic active rear differential.
