Today Jaguar officially begins to take orders for the 2017 F-TYPE SVR, the super-tuned, super-fast iteration of its hugely entertaining “pure” sports car. The design has been overhauled inside and out to ensure you get the most from its 5-litre V8 Supercharged engine, from wider tyres and lightweight 20-inch forged wheels to a titanium and Inconel superalloy exhaust system delivering a more gravely soundtrack. And while both the coupé and convertible now clock 0-60mph in a venerable 3.5 seconds, it is only the coupé that breaks the benchmark 200mph ceiling. Those who prefer the wind through their hair will have to settle for a mere 195mph. Such is life.
