The Jaguar F-Type is a sports of high performance but that not ago ASCI to their use daily. Vale that this British not is comporte as a utility by the center of a great city, but itself is much more polyvalent in this sense that a car come out of Maranello or of Sant’Agata Bolognese. In addition, it is available in several versions with different powers, traction and even transmission system. It best is that its price also is very remote of them common in the two companies before cited, Ferrari and Lamborghini.
To date, the Jaguar F-Type has an engine located in the front position, which may well be a 3 litre V6 340 or 381 HP, or a 5.0 V8 550 HP in the F-Type R, which touches the 575 HP in the Jaguar F-Type SVR. Depending on the version, this number of power will be sent exclusively to the rear end or will be distributed among the four wheels. According to seems, the position of the engine could change in the next generation of the sports British. Ian Callum, design director, in the Salon of the car of Los Angeles at least this hinted to our colleagues from Road & Track.
“It is time for us to change the proportion of car.” “Is something that has State in my mind for years and years, really was born of the made of that to all us like them supercarros of engine central”, declared Callum. In this way, “almost” confirms that the next Jaguar F-Type will have its engine in a central position, between the front seats and the rear axle. Will lose comfort and versatility, since the great boot is will be diminished, but will win many points for dynamism.
If really the following Jaguar F-Type uses this placement of the engine, and already of step performs some settings to extract more power, the sports British is could convert in a rival worthy for models of them houses Italian cited above, i.e., the Ferrari 488 GTB or the Lamborghini hurricane. It would not be surprising that the most powerful variant of the next F-Type ronde, or even exceeds, the 600 HP.
