  • Jaguar converts its iconic 1960 E-type into an electric car

All-New Discovery SVX, launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show, adds extreme all-terrain capability to the Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) product triangle.

Since its global launch in 2016, the fifth-generation Discovery, built on Land Rover's strong, safe and light aluminium architecture, has won admiration as the world's best full-size versatile SUV.

Tim Hannig, chief of Jaguar Land Rover Classic, says that the company's "aim with the E-type Zero is to future-proof classic vehicle ownership". Developed by Land Rover's Special Vehicle Operations team, the SVX will be powered exclusively by a 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol engine producing nearly 520bhp.

The company says all the important specifications have been improve, such as a higher approach, departure and breaker angles, achieved with a raised body won long-travel suspension and larger 20in forged aluminum wheels shod with all-terrain Goodyear Wrangler tyres.

There are also electronic diff locks front and rear and a re-tuned version of Land Rover's Terrain Response 2 system - in short, it'd be tricky to get this Landy stuck. The automaker has also replaced the transmission's rotary gear selector with a pistol-grip-style shifter to make off-road driving easier.

Jaguar Land Rover holds a similar driving experience for its Jaguar customers, called Art of Performance. Further distinguishing features include Rush Orange internal accents, X logo perforations on the SVX branded seats, Narvik Black side vents with V8 badging, a Narvik Black Dynamic grille, Black roof rails and a roof-mounted unit with two additional light pods for improved low light visibility.

It's a bit off-beat against their latest projects, such as the ultra-luxurious Range Rover SVAutobiography or the high-performance street and track machine that is the new Jaguar XE SV Project 8.
