Just stumbled across this forum/thread as keen to get a little insight into when I can expect my darn SVR to arrive!!
Like many other here, by the sounds of it, I've had my "order" in with dealer for several months (since May!) but am just trying to ascertain when I'm likely to get my keys.
I don’t think anyone will have the crystal ball that’ll give you a definitive answer to this question! Everyone here and all the dealers are in the same boat - in that they just don’t know!
I was told mine would be here at the end of this year, and they’re now guessing January / February.

The fact there are no demonstrators or press cars out there makes me think it’ll still be a while away. I’m looking forward to all the magazines getting hold of one and giving us some reviews.

Here in the US I was told by a JLR contact, first dealer orders by 2nd week of December 2018, expected delivery of cars to dealership by March 1st 2019 , 500 cars are earmarked for North America. All cars to be made at one time on the production line. This is the reason to hold all orders together. UK Should have the cars before the US North American market.

A forum post should be like long enough to cover the subject yet short enough to generate interest.

I don’t get how they can make all cars in one production unless they’ve already sold them all?

Usually, you spec the car you want, order it, and wait 3-6 months (depending on manufacturer).
If they’re all made at the same time, then only people who have already picked their spec will get what they want. The rest would have to take a pre- defined spec.

I was in my dealer last weekend - and so far I’m the only person to place an order there.

Are they only going to make a limited amount of F Pace SVRs?

These cars will start off on the main F Pace line, then be pulled to be finished as SVRs

They may allocate in batches of 500, but they won't wait until they have 500 orders before they then build them all. The whole point of Special Vehicle Operations is that they allude to being more 'hand built' & unique, so two production lines will slow the build time down. They are not, however limited, although I guess the end of the line for the V8 engine manufacture will mean that they will be one to keep. Not for value, but as a bit of history, once we are all forced to plug in, tune out and give up.

Q1 2019. Jan-March first deliveries. Demonstrators in the next 2-3 weeks, order books open shortly after.

Yeah - it’s a shame someone local can’t go into the Stockport dealership and take some more photos from other angles!

I did find the interior photo useful a few weeks back when trying to convince my dealer that ticking the ‘carbon interior’ box actually changed the gear shifter surround. On the configurator, it doesn’t change this part on the image - but the interior photo above shows clearly that that car has carbon!

Had the chance to sample a couple of SVR’s at Vmax 200 at Kendrew.

All straight line acceleration starts upto 150 mph, tyres limited this as car had plenty more go.

Had a quick spin around the little circuit and no doubt performance is up on the V6 Supercharged.

Exterior wise it didn’t seem any more purposeful than the V6 but interior particularly in back was a welcome improvement.

I’m not convinced by it if it’s going to be £75,000 + extras but at high £60’s it would

It's 5 months after my initial inquiry the dealer still hasn't been in touch. If this goes on much linger I will take delivery of the Merc I ordered in the meantime, despite it being ordered 3 months after inquiring about the SVR and there being a 3 month wait on the build.

Unbelievable.
No F-Pace yet. Looking...

The dealer probably knows less than you do to be fair! Hopefully they’ll be able to actually put an order into their system in the next couple of weeks... and then it’s just a matter of time.
For the last couple of months my dealer has promised I’d get the car this year. Now they’re starting to realise that there is NO WAY it’ll be here until at LEAST February.

I really want to see the press getting one, and see what sort of picture the reviews paint.
