The exclusive F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 is the first limited edition of Jaguar’s pinnacle high-performance SUV, created by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke. Just 394 examples are available worldwide.
An emotive specification, inspired by Jaguar’s rich racing heritage, includes specially-formulated Midnight Amethyst Gloss paintwork, Champagne Gold Satin 22-inch forged alloy wheels, Sunset Gold Satin exterior and interior detailing, plus a ‘One of 394’ SV Bespoke commissioning graphic.
The Edition 1988 name, and the total number of cars to be built by Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division, pays tribute to the number of laps completed by the winning XJR-9 LM at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1988.
Mark Wilkes, Director of Vehicle Personalisation, Jaguar, said: “Edition 1988 started with our SV Bespoke and Jaguar Design teams taking inspiration from the iconic liveries of Jaguar’s Le Mans-winning sports cars. The result is a winning combination of colours, textures and features that celebrates sporting success while making the F-PACE SVR even more appealing.”
F-PACE SVR is Jaguar’s pinnacle performance SUV. Powered exclusively by Jaguar’s 550PS 5.0-litre V8 supercharged petrol engine, it is capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 3.8 seconds (0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds) and can reach a top speed of 178mph (286km/h).
A comprehensive package of technical enhancements developed and engineered by the experts at Special Vehicle Operations ensures F-PACE SVR delivers a performance-focused driving experience without affecting everyday usability.
A luxurious interior with sliding panoramic roof, head-up display and the latest connectivity technologies including wireless device charging and Amazon Alexa integration1, underlines F-PACE SVR Edition 1988’s role as a refined SUV with exceptional performance.
The Pivi Pro infotainment system now also incorporates what3words2, meaning navigation destinations can be set using unique three-word strings that correspond to precise 3m sq locations. Just type the words ‘wins.report.miracle’, for example, to arrive at the main entrance of the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans.
The Jaguar F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 will be presented alongside the 1988 Le Mans-winning XJR-9 on Special Vehicle Operations’ display at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, June 8-12, and makes its dynamic debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 23-26.
