Jaguar working on the 700+ hp F-Type R-S Coupe

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 20, 2013

Jaguar already did a great job with the F-Type Cabriolet and recently we announced you that half of the first-year production is already sold. Still, the best things are yet to come as the British company now owned by Tata Motors is preparing the F-Type R-S Coupe to take on the mighty Porsche 911 Turbo.

The Jaguar F-Type R-S Coupe will deliver over 700 hp and will be capable to achieve a top speed of over 200 mph or 320 km/h.

An inside source revealed the fact that the new car will be insane and that it will look fantastic in the French Racing Blue paint scheme seen on the XKR-S. What is more interesting is that the new F-Type R-S Coupe could use some of the technology developed for the C-X75 hybrid supercar, which was canceled.

For those who don’t know, the C-X75 used a turbocharged and supercharged 1.6-liter petrol engine twinned with multiple electric motors.

The bad news is that we will have to wait for the sporty F-Type R-S as the standard F-Type Coupe will only arrive net year. Sources say that the F-Type R-S will not go into production until at least 2016.
