Jaguar XE SVR with 500 hp will probably look like this

It’s only a speculative rendering, but looks bang on

Jaguar is expected to release a rival for the BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG in the form of its upcoming XE SVR. The model is expected to pump out some 500 hp using Jag’s now traditional 5.0-liter blown V8 – it already makes 567 hp in the hottest F-Type, but it will probably be dialed down a tad for the XE.

Camouflaged XE SVR prototypes have already been spotted testing, but those didn’t look like they had the final aggressive body kit on them – they just looked like any ol’ XE, but with quad exhausts at the back.

If you do want to see what it could look like, we can provide this rendering of its front fascia. It features a more aggressive bumper with integrated splitter, as well as new grille and bonnet. To our eyes, this is bang on the money and we genuinely don’t expect the final production incarnation to differ too much.
