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

Article by Christian A., 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.

This curving line is matched by the highlight line running back from the vent on the side. This blends into the "light-catcher" surface detail over the sill, and this line conveys a sensation of swiftness to the automobile. The light-catcher surface detail also lets the door’s exterior wrap around the flank of the car, producing a look similar to a fuselage.

The next heartline billows outward to create the powerful rear haunch before stretching vividly around the back of the vehicle. The crisp, smooth lines of the back are made feasible partly by the addition of an energetic rear spoiler that activates at speed to lower aerodynamic lift. The spoiler goes up when the automobile achieves 60 mph and then goes down to be a flush fit when the acceleration goes under 40 mph. There are other subtle streamlining aids such as a front splitter and a sculptured rear valance.

Each aspect of a sports auto, proportionally, lets the company create a vehicle that is thrilling to behold; intuitive as well as corporeal. To brand the true meaning of sports car styling is to be suited for its purpose, enclosing the driver, passenger, and mechanics in the most exhilarating, gorgeous, and sensory parcel conceivable with only the necessary components and decor.

An item of styling should relate a tale, and because of this, every shape of the F-Type has a beginning, a course, and an end. If each line is approached individually and is achieved as aesthetically suitably as imaginable, then the proportions will be correct, and it will endure throughout time.
