Jaguar Land Rover is coming to this year’s Pebble Beach Automotive weekend with convoy chock full of hot new cars. On one corner we have the new Range Rover Sport SVR showing up in full production guise, and on the other the U.S. production version of F-Type Project 7. The first prototype of new Lightweight E-type will also make debut at the event.
So it’s definitely worth a visit if just to see JLR’s high performance trio. Let’s have a quick look at the products mentioned above, starting with the Range Rover Sport SVR. The super-hot SUV was first previewed at the Goodwoof FoS earlier this year, wearing heavy camouflage. The first JLR vehicle to get the “SVR” badge comes with a 550 horsepower supercharged V8 engine.
As for the F-Type Project 7, it’s a limited edition version of the standard F-Type, inspired by the legendary D-Type in design and featuring a bespoke carbon-fiber aerodynamic kit and a 500 horsepower V8 engine.
The Lightweight E-type is probably the most interesting part of JLR’s lineup. Promised long ago, the Pebble Beach prototype is the first of the “missing” six Lightweights that were never built from the intended 18-car series. They are being built using original blueprints by JLR’s bespoke department and are expected to fetch insanely high selling prices.
