The company isn’t giving up on high-performance offerings all together, though. Rather, the R-S badge will simply be replaced with the SVR moniker.
Likewise, any future replacement for the ageing XKR-S might instead be known as the XK SVR. (If the name continues, that is, as Jaguar is known to have registered the trademark ‘Q-Type’ with no confirmed plans.)
A report this week with Dutch website Telegraaf Autovisie also suggests that the F-Type range, currently topped by the F-Type R Coupe, will soon welcome a new F-Type SVR flagship.
Details on that model are yet to surface, although a power figure greater than the current R model’s 410kW would seem a sure thing.
