The production version of the Jaguar F-Type will be getting an XF sourced 5.0 liter V8 engine, once the model will be hitting the market.
After being officially presented to the public at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show and confirmed for production, the all-new Jaguar F-Type is once again placed into the spotlights, this time with the British based automaker planning a 5.0 liter V8 engine for it. Even if the car manufacturer didn’t announce anything on this officially for the moment, the guys at insideline.com are saying that a reliable source within the company has confirmed its large engine.
The unit in question is a 5.0 liter V8 which will be sourced from the XF and incorporated with supercharging technology, in order for the vehicle to offer improved fuel consumption, low CO2 emissions and last, but not least, high performance. According to our source, the 5.0 liter V8 engine is expected to develop a total output of 535 horsepower. Besides the large V8 unit, a smaller 3.0 liter V6 engine is also expected to be fitted onto the Jaguar F-Type, and this will come in two outputs, with 375 HP and in 335 HP with 450 Nm of torque (332 lb-ft).
