Jaguar’s SVR Performance Brand: Your New Favorite?

2015 Jaguar F-Type R

There are performance brands, then there are the performance sub-brands of performance brands.

It sounds confusing, but you know exactly what I mean. BMW has one. Audi has one. Mercedes-Benz has one. Cadillac has one. Even Lexus, the stalwart of comfort and luxury, has one.

Jaguar has one too, which has been denoted with an R or R-S badge on the trunk, which signifies a step up in horsepower, acceleration, and handling. Future top-of-the-line Jaguars will wear a new SVR badge, which will likely grow into a full lineup of vehicles.

Which is your favorite performance brand? Keep reading for a quick rundown.



BMW’s M is the performance brand that’s most famous and the one other carmakers hope to imitate and challenge. The M3 and M5 are the best of the best.

Mercedes-Benz AMG

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG

If you come across a car wearing an AMG badge, don’t challenge it unless the car you’re in has an M on the trunk. Mercedes vehicles are known for class, but stick an AMG on one, and it turns into a monster.

Audi RS

2014 Audi RS5

Cars with the RS badge represent the most advanced technology and engineering that Audi has in its production vehicles. Few cars combine speed and beauty as well as the Audi RS series.

Lexus F

2015 Lexus RC350 F Sport

Lexus is trying. The company that started as a way to get Toyota into the luxury game has evolved into an assault on the German performance divisions. It hasn’t taken them down yet, but maybe the RC 350 F Sport can start changing that.

Cadillac V

2016 Cadillac CTS-V

Look how far Cadillac has come. The days of land yachts like the old Deville have given way to the likes of the CTS-V, which is a genuine competitor to the best Germany has to offer.
