Michelle Rodriguez knows a thing or two about speed. As one of the stars of the Fast & Furious movie franchise, she’s been behind the wheel of some fast cars. But the Jaguar F-TYPE SVR was the first car that allowed her to surpass the 200 mph mark.
“I’ve always wondered what it was like to travel faster than my top speed of 140mph and, outside of the Autobahn,” said Rodriguez. “It was refreshing to be able to take myself beyond my limitations, going that fast is a big responsibility but the experience in this car was more graceful than anything I’ve felt before.”
On a closed highway in the Nevada desert, home to the world’s fastest road race the Silver State Classic Challenge, the actress pushed the car to its top speed with the speedometer indicating 201 mph.
“Reaching 201 mph felt amazing, the car drove really smoothly, all my corrections were minimal, I was super focused, and it really reacted in all the right ways,” said Rodriguez. “Driving this car was insane!”
The F-TYPE SVR is Jaguar’s ultimate performance vehicle and can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds.
