    Jaguar Land Rover's SVO Division Could Do Its Own Models


    • Jaguar Land Rover's SVO Division could branch out to its own stand alone models

    Even though the SVO division is about a year old, the performance arm for Jaguar Land Rover has been making some news with such models as the Jaguar F-Type Project Seven and Range Rover Sport SVR. Now the division is possibly planning doing stand alone models.

    “We’re certainly looking at that, and we’ve got the capability to do that. Is there an opportunity for us to do a completely stand-alone car? Maybe,” said John Edwards, head of SVO.

    This would be a big step for a new division that still in its infancy. Bloomberg points out that its similar to AMG which when it was absorbed into Mercedes-Benz and started building high-performance variants of Mercedes' lineup. The past few years have seen the arm branch out and building their own stand-alone models - SLS and GT. But the difference is that AMG had a long time to develop a reputation - SVO doesn't have that luxury.

    Be interesting to see what they bring to the table. Same old warmed over performance that everyone is doing or something truly new and innovative?

    V, F, M, AMG, R, and now SVO.  OK.

     

    SRT, IPL (kinda), Type-R

     

    SVO was also used at Ford before, no?

     

     

    Yes - Most famously on the Mustang SVO in the mid-eighties.

      A new report from Auto Express says Jaguar's Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) is putting the finishing touches on high-performance XE to take on the likes of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, BMW M3, and Mercedes-AMG C63.
      The XE SVR will boast Jaguar's 5.0L supercharged V8 engine with around 500 horsepower. This will be hooked up with an eight-speed automatic. The current SVR lineup - F-Type and Range Rover Sport - utilize all-wheel drive and there is the possibility the XE SVR could go down this route. There has also been some work done on the chassis with new springs, dampers, and a limited-slip rear differential. Expect a more aggressive exterior look to go with the mechanical changes. 
      Auto Express says the XE SVR "will arrive almost halfway through the saloon’s lifecycle," leading us to believe it could be next year or so.

      The last time an inline-six could be found under the hood of a Jaguar or Land Rover vehicle was back in 1996. Afterwards, the British automaker would introduce a range of V6 engines. But those engines could be replaced by an inline-six engine.
       
      Car Magazine has learned from sources that Jaguar Land Rover are readying a new inline-six engine that will be based off the new Ingenium four-cylinder engine family. The reason Jaguar Land Rover can do this is the Ingenium engine was designed to modular, so adding two more cylinders will not be a big issue.
       
      The engine will be a 3.0L and feature direct injection and turbocharging. There will be gas and diesel versions with three different power outputs.
      Gas: 300, 400, 500 horsepower Diesel: 275, 335, 400 horsepower

      It is unknown what vehicle the new inline-six will go into first. But Car says it will be in a number of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles. Expect to see engine debut in 2017.
