F-PACE SVR 1988 Edition

In 1988, Tony Southgate built on the XJR-8 releasing the iconic XJR-9 which turned heads with not only a 7 litre V12 engine, but with it's log-drag aerodynamic body. The XJR-9 took 6 of 11 victories in the World Prototype Championships in 1988 and today, Jaguar hopes to re-capture some of that magic, in the form of the latest F-PACE Special Edition equipped with it's deep Midnight Amethyst paintwork with Sunset Gold detailing and 22" Forged Champagne Gold alloy wheels. This stunning special edition is one of 394.

Beyond its blisteringly quick 5.0 litre, 550PS V8 Supercharged engine, F-PACE SVR Edition 1988 integrates a wealth of sophisticated and enriching features. Heated and cooled SVR Performance Seats in Semi-Aniline leather, carbon fibre trim finisher, and sliding panoramic roof ensure executive levels of form and function. As is the standard for F-PACE Special editions, the signature red SVR has been removed and replaced with "Edition 1988" on things like the illuminated treadplates, as well as a bespoke 1988 Edition dashboard.
