Jaguar F Pace SVR Edition 1988: Key Highlights
The Edition 1988 F Pace gets a lot of exclusive bits, starting from its paint. The SUV comes in the Midnight Amethyst shade alone. (Don’t get scared by the name, it’s just a deep, rich shade of purple!) If you might remember, the XJR-9 had a ‘Silk cut’ livery with a shade of Purple on it. Much like the Le Mans car, the F Pace SVR edition 1988 also gets multiple touches of Gold-ish shades in its design. 22-inch forged alloy wheels finished in Champagne Gold can be had on-demand, while the Jaguar logo, tailgate lettering, and a few other places feature touches of Sunset Gold. There are also numerous instances of Gloss Black at multiple places of the design like door mirror caps, brake calipers, wheel center caps etc.
In terms of mechanicals, the bespoke Edition 1988 F Pace SVR remains identical to any other F Pace SVR. It draws its juice from a 5.0L supercharged V8 that churns out 550hp and 700 Nm. The transmission on offer is an 8-speed automatic unit. 0-100 kph is achieved in just 4.0 seconds.'
Jaguar’s 1988 Le Mans Win
The 1988 Le Mans win was very crucial for Jaguar. It broke the team’s 31-year dry spell at the event. The manufacturer raced a 7.0L V12-powered XJR-9 sports prototype. The car had a good-looking ‘Silk Cut’ livery and back in the day, beat Porsche at 24 hours of Le Mans. Watch more of the action here.
