Jaguar F-Type V8 Engine

The Jaguar F-Type was set to go on sale in early 2014. The F-Type was launched initially as a soft top convertible and later with the coupé version was launched in 2013. It is a two seat high performance sports car, manufactured by Jaguar Cars as the replacement car for the Jaguar XK. The convertible version of F-Type was followed by a presentation at the 2012 Paris Motor Show and at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, sporting an F-Type chassis.

In 2013 the Jaguar F-Type coupé was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show and Tokyo Motor Show, followed by Jaguar’s Academy of Sport Annual Awards. The ‘launch models’ included the F-Type (340 PS), F-Type ‘S’ (380 PS) and F-Type ‘R’ (550 PS).

Jaguar unveiled the F-Type SVR at the Geneva Motor Show in early 2016. It is also fitted with the same 5.0 litre supercharged V8 engine from the V8 ‘S’ and ‘R’, but with 575 PS; 423 kW; 567 bhp and 680 N·m (500 lb·ft), launching the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and managed a top speed of 322 km/h, making it the first Jaguar since the XJ220 to reach the 200 mph mark. The SVR comes standard with all-wheel-drive in both Coupe and Convertible versions. The F-Types features an all-aluminium chassis and the convertible roof is an electrically operated retractable fabric hood.

The F-Type V8 ‘R’ is fitted with Jaguar’s 5.0-litre, 558 PS (410 kW; 550 bhp) supercharged petrol powerplant that has a top speed of 299 km/h and 0 100  k/ph in 4.0 seconds.
