While reviewing data for the 'Performance SAV - Comparison Charts' thread on the G01 Forum, I came across information on the Jaguar F-Pace SVR. [ ]. Impressive. To see where it might land on the P-SAVIE list (the Triathlete of SAV analyses which combines performance, cargo volume, and aerodynamics), I plugged in 550 HP, which yields a Wt/HP ratio of 7.46 if its current weight can be maintained. That would allow a conservative 0-60mph of ~3.6 sec (probably more in the 3.4-3.5s range). To be fair I added 2/100ths to the Cd which increased it from 0.32 to 0.34. Those numbers yield a top-of-the-pack P-SAVIE of 0.74 (even better than the Trackhawk), thanks in part to its combination of excellent cargo volume and aerodynamics.

Hopefully BMW will allow the X3M equal footing in this competitive field at its release - a difficult goal it seems, if it arrives with less than 500HP.
