The F-Type SVR has finally had its first proper workout, in the hands of Fast and Furious star Michelle Rodriguez.
She managed to push the SVR Jag to its claimed top speed of 322km/h with relative ease. This confirms the SVR as the fastest production Jaguar yet.
This is a new benchmark for the actress as this will officially be the quickest she’s ever driven a car.
The Speed test took place on world’s fastest road race location in Nevada desert, USA, where the Silver State Classic Challenge is held.
“Driving this car was insane! I’ve now broken my personal speed record in the beautiful Jaguar F-TYPE SVR. Reaching 201 mph (322 km/h) felt amazing, the car drove really smoothly, all my corrections were minimal, I was super focused, and it really reacted in all the right ways”, Rodriguez commented.
“I don’t think I’d eve rgo this fast without a professional driver seated next to me, but oh man, it was an incredible feeling. I’ve always wondered what it was like to travel faster than my top speed of 140 mph (225 km/h) and, outside of the Autobahn, it’simpossible for me to do it safely anywhere else and safety is most important to me. It was refreshing to be able to take myself beyond my limitations, going that fast is a big responsibility but the experience in this car was more graceful than anything I’ve felt before.”
