Sports car enthusiasts can now experience the excitement and power of Jaguar’s all-wheel drive 200mph F-TYPE SVR coupé around the world-famous Nürburgring Nordschleife
Experienced professional drivers will take customers on a full-throttle ride in Jaguar’s new all-weather supercar
This thrilling new F-TYPE SVR and Nordschleife experience may be booked at:
Jaguar’s new, 200mph-capable supercar and the world’s most demanding race circuit, the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife, are now available to be experienced together with the launch of the ‘Jaguar Co-Pilot Nordschleife’ programme.
This exciting new offer gives visitors and fans the opportunity to experience the thrill of Jaguar’s fastest-ever series production car from the passenger seat on the circuit famed as the ‘Green Hell’.
Customers booking their place for a flying lap in the F-TYPE SVR will be amongst the first to experience its power, speed and enhanced dynamics package around the 12.94-mile (20.83km) Nordschleife circuit.
The F-TYPE SVR has been developed by Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations as the ultimate all-weather supercar and is the pinnacle of the successful F-TYPE range. The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR coupé is powered by a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine that develops 575PS and 700Nm of torque and accelerates from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds.
Before each passenger ride begins, all Co-Pilots are equipped with a race suit and helmet plus HANS (Head and Neck Support) system to ensure maximum safety out on the track. To capture the memorable experience, on-board cameras are mounted inside the F-TYPE SVR so that passengers can relive the excitement of their adventure at the Nordschleife circuit.
Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations department has fitted the F-TYPE SVR with a roll cage, Recaro Racing seats, race harnesses for occupant safety and an unmistakable bespoke livery on bright Firesand Orange metallic paint.
Mark Stanton, Director of Jaguar Land Rover Special Vehicle Operations, presented the keys to the unique F-TYPE SVR to Mirco Markfort, CEO Chief Executive Officer, Capricorn, Nürburgring Gmbh this weekend.
Mark Stanton said: “The weather at the Nürburgring is famed for being unpredictable and the new Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is the perfect car to tackle the undulating track in variable conditions. Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations division has engineered the F-TYPE SVR to be lighter, faster and more powerful while still remaining a usable supercar every day. The Nordschleife is a fantastic circuit on which to experience all of the engineering enhancements my team has applied to the F-TYPE SVR.”
Also present at the ceremony were Phil Talboys, Jaguar Land Rover European Engineering Operations Manager, and former Formula One racing driver Christian Danner. Danner, who also leads Jaguar Land Rover’s Driving Academy Team in Germany, said: “The enhanced aerodynamics package, uprated chassis and custom transmission calibration makes the F-TYPE SVR one of the best cars to take passengers around this challenging track and experience up to 200mph along the Döttinger Höhe straight.”
Passenger laps in the unique Jaguar F-TYPE SVR are available for 16 consecutive weekends from now until the end of October. The price for the 30-minute passenger thrill ride is €295 per person
