A Jaguar insider has reportedly revealed to Britain’s Auto Express that a new performance flagship F-Type with over 520kW of power is in the pipeline.
“We have done an R-S version with over 700bhp that will do over 200mph (320km/h),” the insider revealed.
The Jaguar insider also reportedly said that the car would look “fantastic” with a French Racing Blue paint scheme, which would be fitting as this colour is usually reserved for Jaguar’s more important sports models.
A Jaguar F-Type Coupe was spied testing at the Nurburgring just last week, but if the reported 520kW F-Type Coupe does make it into production, it's not expected until 2016.
Meanwhile, the F-Type roadster is due to hit the Australian market in the near future, with prices starting from $139,000 (plus on-road costs).
That figure will secure you a V6 model with 250kW while the F-Type S roadster equipped with a 365kW V8 will start from $202,300 (plus on-road costs).
TMR can only speculate as to what a 520kW F-Type Coupe would be priced at, but to be a true Porsche 911 Turbo S rival, the price would need to be around AU $250,000.
