Jaguar F-Pace SVR 1988 is a Le Mans tribute

A Jaguar XJR-9 won Le Mans in 1988 to end a 31-year drought. The Jaguar's 7.0-liter V12 became an instant icon among Jaguar fans.

The F-Pace SVR Edition 1988 pays homage to the Silk Cut-liveried racer that won the XJR-9 at Le Mans.

Jaguar F-Pace SVR Edition 1988 doesn't offer the XJR's powerful V12. Instead, you'll get a tried and true 5.0-liter supercharged V8 making 550 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, managed by an automatic transmission.

It's all basically what you'll get from a standard Jaguar F-Pace SVR.

Why the Edition 1988 over the standard Jaguar F-Pace? Let's start with the paint. It is painted midnight amethyst, a deep, dark purple as you can see above.

It looks like the Silk Cut livery for the Jaguar XJR-9, and it is accented with gold-finished wheels. Your sunset gold Jaguar logo will also remind people you have a special edition.

Jaguar's motorsport heritage is comforting. This F-Pace SVR Edition 1988 model is capped at 394 examples worldwide.

The company didn't mention specifically how the allocations will work by region, but the F-Pace SVR will start at $110,000 in the US.
