Supercharged induction technology provides a linear delivery of performance, and instant access to high levels of torque at all engine speeds, minimizing the gap between the driver’s demand for power and the engine’s response.
Four highly advanced engines are available on the F-TYPE:
• F-TYPE - 3.0 Litre V6 340hp Supercharged
• F-TYPE S - 3.0 Litre V6 380hp Supercharged
• F-TYPE V8 S - 5.0 Litre V8 495hp Supercharged
• F-TYPE R - 5.0 Litre V8 550hp Supercharged
The 3.0 V6 Supercharged 340hp
• 0-100 km/h in 5.3 seconds
• Top Speed 250 km/h
• CO2 (g/km) 205 (Coupe) 209 (Convertible)
The 3.0 V6 Supercharged 380hp
• 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds
• Top Speed 275 km/h
• CO2 (g/km) 213
Jaguar’s new generation Supercharged 3.0 V6 engines are powerful and refined. Generating extremely high specific power outputs of up to 127hp per litre, they deliver thrilling performance and a rewarding driving experience. The compact supercharger’s sophisticated boost control and secondary throttle valve ensure that torque curves rise steeply over a broad range of engine speeds.
A water-cooled intercooler reduces the temperature of the intake air for greater power and efficiency, while an innovative system of counter-rotating front and rear balancer weights aids smoothness and refinement.
They also feature a fast-reacting Intelligent Stop/Start system that can improve fuel economy by up to 5 percent.
The 5.0 V8 Supercharged 495hp
• 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds
• Top Speed 300 km/h
The 5.0 V8 Supercharged 550hp
• 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds
• Top Speed 300 km/h
Both 5.0 V8 engines are supremely powerful. A larger supercharger delivers up to 550hp and as much as 502 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration is rapid and progressive, response is immediate and predictable.
Advanced technologies deliver performance, refinement and efficiency. The lightweight die-cast aluminum block is supplemented by cross-bolted main bearing caps to increase rigidity. Valves are controlled by dual independent variable cam timing to optimise power at all engine speeds. Spray-guided direct injection delivers precisely measured quantities of fuel directly into the centre of the combustion chambers at pressures of up to 2,000psi for cleaner, more efficient combustion.
In common with the V6 engines, they also feature an Intelligent Stop/Start system that can improve fuel economy by up to 5 per cent.
