It’s all about horsepower and torque. If the past few years have shown us anything, it is that innovation and advancement in engine building is still going strong. With everyone under the sun cranking out 400+ horse power, the competition level in the sports car circle is getting very very heavy.
It would appear that Jaguar is taking that little tidbit very seriously. The folks at Car and Driver found out that Jaguar is planning on cramming a V8 under the hood of the new F-Type to make sure it keeps up with the competition. Several years back it would have been fine for them to ship a sports car with one of their high performance V6′s, supercharged or not. However, with Mustangs and Camaros prowling the streets pushing well over 500 horses Jaguar knows it has to step up if it wants to continue to be taken seriously when it comes to performance. I can’t wait to see what the final decision engine wise will be. Like I’ve said before… all this competition is going to make for some incredible cars!
