All-Wheel-Drive Jaguar F-Type R Coming to LA

2014 LA Auto Show

Now an even more formidable foe to the Porsche 911 Turbo.

We knew more Jaguar F-Type variants were in the mix, and now the British automaker has confirmed that an all-wheel-drive F-Type will officially debut at the LA Auto Show later this month. The top-of-the-line F-Type R AWD will reportedly be capable of going from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds, which is actually a 0.2 second improvement over the RWD version. Top speed will remain the same at 186 mph.

Jaguar has also announced a new technical partnership with The Bloodhound Projec, where the two companies will share technologies to help set a new record. The goal is to raise the world land speed record above 1,000 mph; the current record stands at 763.05 mph. Jaguar vehicle line director Ian Hoban stated that "Our target with engineering the all-wheel-drive F-Type was to maintain the engaging rear-drive character that’s so important to Jaguar sports cars, yet offer even greater dynamic capability."
