Not that you would. But you could.

Jaguar officially unwrapped the F-Type SVR coupe and convertible this week, and while we already knew most of the salient details about it thanks to a recent leak,, it’s still fun to salivate over the car’s specs. A supercharged 5.0-liter V8 cranked up to 575 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque. Enhanced aerodynamics, including an active rear spoiler.  A lightweight Inconel exhaust that’s both lighter and louder. Recalibrated eight-speed automatic transmission, torque vectoring system, and all-wheel drive. A claimed 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds, with a top speed of an even 200 mph for the hardtop.

One thing we didn’t know until today, though: how much the F-Type SVR would cost. Here in the United States, snatching up an F-Type SVR coupe will run wealthy big cat buyers $125,950, while buying the convertible will cost $128,800.

Considering the F-Type SVR’s performance, that’s practically a bargain. But it’s still a ton of money by most objective measures. So we pulled together a list of a few other things you could buy for the same amount of cash, in case you weren’t yet already lost in the fantasy of hammering the SVR up the Stelvio Pass.
