Jaguar’s F-Type R Spyshots

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.

2013 Jaguar F-type Roadster – Spyshots

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.

The wide body DTM Styled Saloon is actually named the TMG (Toyota Motorsport GmbH) Edition and looks to have been built by the Toyota motorsports division.

The specs are vague enough not showing how many cylinders or engine details but they seem inline with the LFA V10.

Thanks to a leaked spec sheet the TMG Edition engine has a displacement of 4.968cc and revs to 9000 rpm same as the LFA.

The Engine Displacement is higher but so is the weight of this car so it all adds up.

I suppose we will have to wait until the Tokyo Motorshow but until then enjoy the exclusive Spy Photos of it in test on the Nordschleife.

Pagani Zonda F Crashes in Italy @198mph

One thing we all hate seeing is a wrecked exotic, this unfortunate was one of the great creations from Marinello based Pagani.

According to the Italian publication Il Secolo XIX, the driver of a Pagani Zonda lost about 1.2 million euros two nights ago when he crashed his handmade exotic at 198.8 mph.

The driver, a 28-year-old with German citizenship and Monaco plates, was hurtling through Italy on the way to Genoa when he lost control and struck the guardrail at the side of the road.

The Impact and forces under such speeds usually leads to a fatality, but due to the strength of the Carbon Fibre Chassis of the V12 powered Zonda the passenger cell remained intact.

Driver reportedly walked away from the crash unaided.

Pagani Zonda R 6:47 Nurburgring Record Lap Video


The guy’s from Sport Auto and the team from Pagani have released the Zonda R Lap record video driven by Marc Basseng.

The Zonda R is powered by a V12 AMG engine that delivers 750 hp at 8000 rpm and 524 lb. ft. of torque. Although it looks like other Zondas, this only uses ten percent of the Zonda F components. New parts include a suspension forged in Avional (aluminum alloy), a new Pagani six-speed transversal sequential gearbox, and a carbon fiber monocoque chassis. The Zonda R will be limited to only 10 units each sold out but im sure after you handover the cash the italian automark will build one for you.

The Video of the lap record is more of a marketing video than a simple lap record cockpit camera it was a masterpiece of automotive cinematography.

Personally I would have prepared a VBOX overlay so you can analyse the Run, Instead of just being presented a time at the end, but well done Pagani for another well deserved sub 7minute run.
