Next Jaguar F-Type to use BMW-sourced V8?

By Faiming_low on 13 Oct 2018

Attached Image A U.K publication has reported that the next Jaguar F-Type could arrive in 2020 with a BMW-sourced V8 engine. This is despite Jaguar's Design Director Ian Callum saying that the F-Type isn't ready for a replacement.

CAR also reported that the car will remain front-engined and will be using a revised aluminum architecture that will be called the D7b evolution. Said to be lighter than before, the new platform should keep the next F-Type's weight in check as it grows larger.

With a 2+2 seating arrangement, the new coupe will clearly target Porsche's 911, leaving room Jaguar to come up with a 718 Cayman rival in the future.

Other than the usual Ingenium four-cylinders that the company has, Jaguar Land Rover is looking to make use of BMW's 4.4-litre turbocharged V8 to replace the ageing ford-based supercharged 5.0-litre V8.

Obviously, nothing is official but if Jaguar will use BMW's engine in its F-Type, we won't be suprised to see the engine in other newer generations of Jaguar XJs and Range Rovers.
