Jaguar has officially announced plans to introduce the new F-Type SVR at the Geneva Motor Show.

Set to go on sale this summer, the high-performance model was created to exploit the "sports car's full potential while retaining its day-to-day usability." 

The company is details under wraps but the model has an aggressive front fascia with larger air intakes and a new splitter.  The sports car has also been equipped with a ventilated hood, a titanium exhaust system, and an active rear spoiler that automatically extends and retracts according to the car's speed.  Fans will also notice a set of20-inch forged aluminum wheels that are shod in Pirelli P Zero tires.

The interior largely carries over but designers added a sport steering wheel, brush aluminum trim and quilted Performance seats with an Argyle-inspired pattern.

Jaguar might be playing coy on specifics but a brochure leak revealed the model will be powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine that develops 575 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.  It will be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system that will enable the coupe to accelerate from 0-62 miles hour in 3.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 200 mph.  The convertible offers similar performance but its top speed is slightly lower at 193 mph.
