It appears that the BMW M3 will have a tough rival from Jaguar as the British manufacturer will offer a SVR version of its upcoming XE compact sedan. According to AutoExpress, the Jaguar XE SVR will use the well-known 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that will produce a staggering 490 hp.

The engine will enable the sedan to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 4 seconds, while the top speed will be limited at 155 mph or 250 km/h. Just like the other vehicles from the Jaguar lineup using the V8 engine, the XE SVR will use the 8-speed automatic transmission.

The new high-performance sedan will debut in early 2016, with a price tag of $100,000 or 75,000 euros. Due to the impressive performances and the big engine, the Jaguar XE SVR will arrive with high-performance brakes, stiffer suspension but also an electronically controlled limited slip differential that improves traction.

Regarding the design, the vehicle will feature a more aggressive aerodynamic kit featuring a new front bumper with larger air intakes for cooling the engine, new side sills as well as a rear trunk spoiler and a redesigned rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and exhaust system.

The interior will offer a new steering wheel, unique trims, sport bucket seats and aluminum pedals. More details to be revealed!
