Jaguar is reportedly planning a range-topping SVR version for its all-new XE.

Auto Express reports the SVR is set to fight the BMW M3 and will be powered by the supercharged 5.0-litre V8 engine from the F-Type S tuned to 489 bhp.

JLR's recently formed Special Vehicle Operations division will prepare the car and it's tipped to wear the company's new SVR performance badge.

Set to arrive by early 2016 for around £60,000, the XE SVR will also use the firm's 8-speed automatic gearbox only it will be programmed to offer faster shifts than in the standard car.

This could be very interesting and although probably too much for me shows what the chassis and platform they've created is capable of. If the XE can take on the M3 it will be a very good day indeed.
