Jaguar Land Rover South Africa and sub-Sahara Africa will show off the latest models in its stable at the South African Festival of Motoring (SAFM).

The Jaguar F-TYPE SVR, the fastest and most powerful F-TYPE to date, will be shown for the first time in South Africa. Boasting a supercharged V8 producing 423kW and 700Nm, this snarling cat makes its presence known through a bespoke Inconel and titanium exhaust system. Its eight-speed automatic transmission and Jaguar’s Intelligent Driveline Dynamics All-Wheel Drive system allow the F-TYPE SVR to leap off the line and reach 100km/h in just 3.7 seconds. Flat out, it will reach a top speed of 322km/h.


Land Rover’s first-ever convertible will also make its debut for the crowds at SAFM. Combining capability with desirability, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is a convertible for all seasons. It offers unparalleled practicality in a convertible car, through excellent interior space and Land Rover’s suite of proven off-road technologies. Inside, it has all the amenities and technologies modern drivers want.


In addition to seeing the new arrival at the Jaguar Land Rover stand, show goers will also have opportunities to experience products first-hand. The Land Rover Experience team will host off-road driving experiences in a number of Land Rover products, while Jaguar Experience instructors will be on hand for thrilling, high-speed laps around the new Kyalami track, in a Jaguar F-TYPE, Jaguar XJ and Jaguar XF.

SAFM starts on Wednesday, 31 August 2016 and runs through to Sunday, 4 September 2016. Tickets are available online at Computicket or on the date, at the gate.
