“My passion for Jaguar came from watching Le Mans. I fell in love with the Silk Cut car… I was eight. That’s when I fell in love with motorsport.”Romain Grosjean, Jaguar Formula 1 Driver
Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) division creates cars that are the ultimate expression of Jaguar. The latest SVO creation is the 2018 Jaguar F‑TYPE SVR, the most powerful F‑TYPE ever. The 5.0-litre V8’s twin vortex supercharged 575 hp engine can launch the all-wheel drive car from 0‑100 km/h (0-62.1 mph) in just 3.7 seconds on its way to a top speed of 322 km/h (200 mph).
31 year old Romain Grosjean has been racing in Formula 1 since 2012. In 2016 joined the Haas F1 Team which is headquartered in Kannapolis, North Carolina, the first American-led Formula 1 team in 30 years. With more than 115 F1 race starts under his belt, Grosjean has 10 podiums, finishing a career-best second place in the 2012 Canadian Grand Prix and the 2013 United States Grand Prix.
