Jaguar to invest GBP200m in Castle Bromwich plant to make F-Type image

The British based automaker Jaguar is planning to invest 200 million GBP in its Castle Bromwich factory in order to develop the future F-Type sports car.

The F-Type will be a successor to the iconic E-Type and Jaguar Land Rover will invest about 200 million pounds in the Castle Bromwich factory in order to develop the future sports car. Even if there is no official word from the car company on this subject just yet, telegraph.co.uk is saying that the investment is “the real deal” and the Castle Bromwich plant will grow by 50pc.

The Jaguar F-Type has already been confirmed for production and the sports car will get the 5.0 liter V8 engine under its hood, according to the company, but there is no detail on what output this unit produce will. The existing 5.0 liter V8 engine made by Jaguar is currently developing a total output of 550 HP and 680 Nm of torque on the XKR-S, but the same unit is also used with 410 HP and 635 Nm of torque.

Besides the large 5.0 liter V8 engine, the Jaguar F-Type will also get a new 3.0 liter V6 supercharged petrol unit, which will hit the market in two outputs, with 335 BHP and 375 BHP. The same unit, in the 335 BHP configuration will also be adopted by the XF and XJ.
