Jaguar’s formidable F-Pace SVR won’t win any environmental awards, but commands plenty of attention from high-end SUV buyers.
Brawny Jaguar getting hearts racing
Some say the secret to success is to zig while everybody is zagging, buying up big while others are selling down.
That might help explain British brand Jaguar’s decision to release a new version of its brawny F-Pace SVR – a charging bull in a field full of sheep – and very definitely an outlier in the modern-day motoring market where emissions are treated like … well … poison.
This car could be seen as a giant “up yours” – a raised middle finger to all those do-gooders driving hybrids and EVs and any machine designed to save the planet.
Or, it could simply be the last hoorah for an era of performance machines that dazzled with their glorious good looks and rare balance of brutal performance and refined opulence.
