Jaguar’s supercharged 5-litre V8 continues to power the F-Type R all-wheel-drive coupe and convertible models, but they’ve been upgraded to match the 423kW, 700Nm outputs of the previous SVR flagship, which is an increase of 18kW and 20Nm, and enough to get the models from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds, according to claims. The R versions also receive an upgraded chassis, featuring adaptive dampers. There’s no word yet on whether there will be a new SVR model, but we are intrigued by the possibility.

Is Jaguar’s 1,020bhp Vision GT Coupe the most beautiful EV?

Jaguar knows how to design a pretty car, and even a handsome EV ‘ the I-Pace is a looker, says us, and who’d dare disagree? But Jag’s young team of designers has outdone itself here. This is the Vision Gran Turismo Coupe and well, phwoar, eh? A classically low, long-bonneted, svelte-hipped sports car if’ever there was’one.

The spec has a few highlights too. Firstly, it’s electric, but it can make a noise like a D-Type thanks to a recording made of an original racecar ‘ see the gallery below. We’re told ‘its race-spec 3.8-litre XK engine provides a unique layer, manipulated and woven into a futuristic and distinctive electric soundtrack.’ R-r-r-r-remix,’anyone?
