Rumor: F-Type R-S will pack 700hp

The Jaguar F-Type is already giving the Porsche 911 a run for its money, but Auto Express has learned that Jaguar is planning an F-Type Coupe which will blow any 911 out of the water – including the 553bhp Turbo S model.

Our source working within the company revealed: “We have done an R-S version with over 700bhp that will do over 200mph – it’s going to be insane.” They also hinted that the car would look “fantastic” in the striking French Racing Blue paint scheme reserved for all of the brand’s wildest sports car models like the XKR-S.

Our exclusive image – based on the C-X16 concept revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show last year – shows how a pumped-up F-Type Coupe could look.

To achieve the power figures, the F-Type R-S could use some of the engine technology which was developed for the canned 900bhp C-X75 hybrid supercar. That means a turbocharged and supercharged 1.6-litre petrol engine twinned with multiple electric motors could provide the drive- this could help create a 700bhp version of the forthcoming car.

The standard F-Type Coupe is set to arrive next year, but we’ll have to wait a little longer for this flagship – it won’t go into production until at least 2016.
