Jaguar F-TYPE SVR - Guest drives

Get ready to drive the most powerful Jaguar F-TYPE ever built. The Jaguar 'Special Vehicle Operations' twin supercharged, 5.0 Litre V8 engine, four-wheel drive SVR.

The SVR feel at home around Thruxton. Sweeping corners on to long straights allow the SVR to really stretch its legs. The twin supercharged 5.0 litre V8 produces 567bhp, the engine barks and spits as you head out of the pitlane but once out on track, the soundtrack is epic! The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is a truly exhilarating car, guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

What to expect from the Sports Car Trio Driving Experience

This driving experience will put guests in the driving seat of three brilliant, yet completely different sports cars on the UK's fastest race circuit. A fantastic opportunity to experience these sports cars in their ideal environment.

First up is the mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive Porsche Cayman. It's great fun and incredibly rewarding to drive, giving great driver feedback, accurate and responsive steering and pinpoint handling. Time in this stunning German coupe will ensure you are fully comfortable and confident with the lines and technique of driving around Thruxton Circuit.

Next is the front-engined, four-wheel-drive monster that is the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR. The SVR is a product of Jaguars SVO division - Special Vehicle Operations. They create cars that, by their own admission, are the ultimate expression of Jaguar. The F‑TYPE SVR, is the most powerful F‑TYPE ever made.

The twin-supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine produces 567BHP and will take you to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and is capable of 200mph! Jaguar have also reworked and tweaked almost every other aspect of the car, from the aerodynamics, suspension to the ceramic brakes. When you add all of these components together, the car is truly stunning to drive and experience.

Last, but by no means least, is the the Alpine A110. A lightweight, mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive sports car.

The original Alpine A110 from the late sixties was a lightweight, compact, highly agile sports car. The same core elements of lightness and agility have been used by Alpine to resurrect and build the new A110 for the modern-day. The result is stunning and has catapulted the A110 straight to the top of the sports car tree.

Driving an Alpine A110 is like a graceful dance, the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR is a raw beast with immense power, and the Porsche Cayman is a precision instrument built for driving pleasure.
