Jaguar Developing 600hp F-Type?

/ Comments

F-Type could leapfrog the XKR-S with an even more powerful version, according to the latest reports.

You'd be forgiven for dismissing the new F-Type as the baby Jaguar roadster, but you'd be mistaken. Sure, the F-Type is smaller than the XK, but when it comes to roadsters, smaller can be better. Especially when they have more power. Both the F-Type and XK can be specified with Jaguar's 5.0-liter supercharged V8, but the XKR-S packs over 50 horses more than the top-spec F-Type. However, reports coming in from the UK suggest that Jaguar could be preparing a new performance version of the F-Type that could leapfrog its big brother.

Although far from confirmed, Autocar reports that Jaguar is working on a 600-horsepower version of the F-Type using a more powerful version of the same engine. The hard-core F-Type would also potentially include some of the go-fast components developed for the track-focused XKR-S GT – particularly, we're hoping, its carbon-ceramic brakes. The high-performance roadster might be made in very limited numbers (following the lead of the XKR-S GT) and, following the cancelation of the C-X75 supercar project, serve as a halo model for the brand. Expect it to come with a suitably high price tag, though.
