OK, i am a great fan of the original CX17 which became our Fpace.

But one thing i loved on the CX17 over the Fpace i have is the rear bumper, think they missed a massive statement if they kept the CX17 rear bumper.

So i know you may say i am crazy thinking about it but does anyone know anybody or a company that may be interested in manufacturing the CX17 rear bumper, yes your going to shout money and your mad but i feel i need to look at this avenue.

So please if you know anyone PM me.

Thanks.

It's not just the bumper though. You'd need to either re-feed the exhaust layout or. Redesign the bumper to match.
It would also need reflectors built in to it. Unless those red air exhaust surrounds were made reflective.

I agree though that Jaguar may release a closer styled bumper on a V8 version and that might be your cheapest and best option - waiting for that part to become available and seeing if it could be made to fit.

Don't think your see a V8 SVR version more like a tuned V6 3 Litre Petrol.

As said want to explore this option.

I agree that they missed a trick with this too .. Possbly in order to give it the cohesive look of the XE XF range of rears.
They may do this for the v8 / straight 6 itanium twin / triple turbo SVR variant, but I don't think they will based on previous offerings.
You could have a low volume mould made.... However this will still be very expensive, and additionally the amount of work needed to measure in 3 d the mating profile on the car new exhausts etc.
What happens if you smack it (insurance wise) etc!!!
I did notice the other day that someone had supplied and fitted a so called SVR kit on an EVOQUE..... All black, it was up for sale on auto trader...4 exhausts and everything .... Looked quite good to be fair. Maybe worth trying to see who supplied that kit..... Maybe they are possibly going to do it for F pace if the demand was there?

Studying a side by side image of the CX17 and the Fpace rear bumper i think it could be possible to adapt a standard bumper into the CX17 bumper, just need to see if a second hand rear bumper is out there yet.

May have had some luck, i spoke to a custom build car company who may be able to assist, i may get a deal also as they want to make a body-kit and have offered to template off my car in return i will get the rear bumper done for a very special price.

Fingers crossed.

Sounds good!! Be interested to know/ see once you have something firm. I find the rear bumper the weakest visual part of the car.

Like the look and stance of the car, like the fact the huge gap above the wheels is lost.

Wonder what the kit costs.
