Jaguar officially announced that its F-Type will receive an all-wheel-drive system, which means that its range will grow from six to 14 derivates in 2015. The manufacturer didn’t release too many details but it told us that it will unveil its new vehicles at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Still, Jaguar revealed the fact that the AWD F-Type R Coupe will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.9 seconds, while top speed will be limited to 300 km/h or 186 mph.
For those who don’t know, the rear-wheel-drive Jaguar F-Type R Coupe accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.0 seconds with a top speed limited at 186 mph or 300 km/h. Both versions will be powered by the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 petrol engine that generates 550 hp and 680 Nm of torque.
In addition, Jaguar announced a technical partnership with The Bloodhound Project with the ultimate aim of raising the world land speed record above 1,000mph and to assist in inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers, which is the overall objective of the project. Currently, the record stands at 763 mph and it was set by Andy Green in Thrust SSC in 1997.
