Few cars can top the sonorous engine note of the Jaguar F-Type R. For the new model year, the sports car is about to get even more aggressive with an extra dose of power. Along with a revised supercharged V-8 engine, the 2021 JaguarF-Type receives a light nip-tuck and new interior technologies.
Jaguar has injected 25 more hp and 14 more lb-ft of torque into the 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 of the F-Type R, bringing total output to 575 hp and 516 lb-ft. According to Jaguar’s estimates, this engine should propel the F-Type R to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. The model also features an upgraded chassis with new springs, dampers, anti-roll bars, and rear knuckles. With these changes, Jaguar promises improved comfort at low speed as well as better control at higher speeds. Wider Pirelli P Zero tires top off the performance updates, and they’re paired with new gloss black 20-inch wheels.
