Here are the latest spyshots of the 2014/15 Civic Type-R, and it looks like the car is to be powered by a turbo for the first time.
This is possibly to improve on emissions which ultimately led to the previous models being chopped, Powering the car is a bit of a mystery but we can assure you that Honda mean business with a 300hp+ serious hatch which will be powered by a new 2.2 liter engine.
The single lone image was posted to Facebook by well-known spy photographer Andreas Mau on his CarPix site, shows all three models of the soon to be released F-Type.
The F-TYPE will be launched as a convertible with a choice of three petrol engines: 340PS and 380PS versions of Jaguar’s all-new 3.0-litre supercharged V6, and a new derivative of its existing supercharged 5.0-litre V8. All will drive the rear wheels through an eight-speed transmission and will be equipped with Stop/Start technology.
Here are the latest spyshots of not one but two different specifications of the rumoured Jaguar’s F-Type R which can be distinguished by the quad exhaust layout compared with the center mounted twin pipes on the lesser powered model.
Also spotted was one of the earlier mules of the F-Type which can be identified by the enlarged wheel arches.
Jaguar have confirmed the roadster will be available with a 3.0-liter V6 supercharged engine in two different power outputs one with 380HP with 460Nm and 340HP with 450Nm.
This car seems to be housing something slightly more powerfull from its V8 ForceFed Growl so rumour is a foot that this car could be housing the “R” family engine the supercharged 5.0-liter V8.
These are the latest and first unofficial spy shots of the Jaguar F Type V6 prowling around the B-Roads in the Midlands UK.
Jaguar plans to launch the roadster in early 2013, priced around the £45,000, followed by an F-type coupe about a year later.
The F-type will be the first model to use the all new 3.0-litre V6 Supercharged petrol engine.
The new quad cam 3.0 litre V6 petrol engine is derived from Jaguar’s existing 5.0-litre V8 taking away 2 combustion chambers, variable valve timing and aluminium construction of the eight. It also includes stop-start and drives through an eight-speed ZF automatic.
The exact capacity of the F-type’s new V6 is 2.9l which will be force fed by the the Roots-type twin-vortex supercharger, giving it an impressive 375bhp and 339lb ft lb of torque.
This will propel the car 0-60 in under 4.5 seconds and propel itself to around 180mph.
