Jaguar F-Type SVR power over weight reduction

New images have come to light of what looks to be the upcoming Jaguar F-Type SVR, which some people are also calling the R-S. However, what everyone seems to agree on is how potent this upgraded version will be, and there lies the problem.

It would seem that in Jaguar’s haste to add more power, they seem to have forgot one simple rule when developing a more sportier performance model, and that is weight reduction.

Jaguar F-Type SVR power

While the new spy shots, thanks to Autoblog, will not tell you any stories about the performance of this more potent Jaguar F-Type, we already know that it is set to come with the more powerful 5.0-liter V8 with up to 600 horsepower.

However, this comes at a price because with all the modifications are made, there does seem to be a lack of it in the weight department. Surely if you want to offer people a sportier version of a car like this, then weight reduction should pay an even more important role than just adding extra power?

One of the main issues here is to do with the clientele Jaguar has to deal with, as they want this speed, but also a little luxury as well, and we know when it comes to reducing weight, this would have to come at the cost of comfort. This means the loss of comfy seats, along with some of those other creature comforts.

If you had the option would you comfort over weight?
