Hennessey Boosts Jaguar F-Type V8 to 623 HP


Read more

The most powerful V8-motivated version of the Jaguar F-Type Coupe, the R, makes 542 hp. That’s a lot, and even if the F-Type is not really the lightest of cars, it’s still pushed to sixty in four-ish seconds – a very competent, though not extraordinary time.

The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray should be a car that takes its mods well (part of the appeal of buying one, I guess), so this HPE700 Twin Turbo by Hennessey is definitely a car to get excited about, especially since there’s still a bit to wait for GM to release its own souped-up variants.
