Hennessey Tunes the Jaguar F-Type ROctober 30th, 2014
The Jaguar F-Type R Coupe already has more power than it probably needs, with a mean 550 horsepower V8, the rear-wheel drive car is already plenty tail happy in the corners. But if you’re driving any car in a straight line, more power is always better, right? So leave it to the tuning experts at Hennessey Performance to take the F-Type R to the next level.
The HPE600 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe pushes the engine up to 623 horsepower, and a crazy 567 lb.-ft. of torque, which results in a 0-to-60 time of just 3.5 seconds. In this test footage, you’ll see the Jag do the 1/4 mile in 11.57 seconds at 123mph, though the specs claim it can do it in 11.4 at 126mph – about 5 mph over stock over the same distance. The upgrade includes software mods, a supercharger pulley upgrade and an intercooler cooling upgrade, as well as installation and a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty.
The best news is that the upgrade is available for ALL 2014-2015 5.0-liter supercharged V8 Jaguar and Range Rover models, which means it can be applied to an F-Type V8 S, or a Range Rover Sport or Autobiography as well.
