Report: Jaguar F-Type will also get a V8 option at some point

At the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, Jaguar confirmed that two new engines will make their way into the brand’s lineup: an all-new turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder and a new supercharged 3.0L V6.

The new supercharged 3.0 liter V6, derived from the brand’s 5.0 liter V8, is good for making 380-hp and will be offered in the new F-Type sports car. However, for those of you that think that 6-cylinder aren’t enough, Jaguar has confirmed that a V8 will eventually make its way in the F-Type as well.

Check out our original post on the Jaguar F-Type.

When? No one really knows, but the move was confirmed to CARandDRIVER.

There is also no word on what kind of output will be offered but Jaguar offers a 5.0 liter V8 in a variety of outputs ranging from 470-hp to 550-hp.
