In the desert, no one can hear you scream.

Not because it doesn’t make a sound, but because nobody can hear you over the roar of the exhaust on the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR.

Driving this British rocketship (however briefly) on the very open roads of the Mojave desert was the highlight of my week. It was even more fun than driving it on the track, which I was afforded the opportunity to do earlier in the day.

I hope to spend much more time with this car in the near future, and bring you all many more photos, but for now enjoy these four, including one I’ve conveniently sized for use as wallpaper on your mobile device.
