If you’ve been seduced by the stunning good looks of the Jaguar F-Type CoupÃ© but are so greedy to think the 404kW R model is not fast enough then you’ll just have to bide your time.
Ian Callum, Jaguar design director, hinted to Autocar that higher performing RS and RS GT models are likely.
“Our obligation is to maximise the opportunity in the car in every direction,” Callum said. “It is clear that the platform is very capable. Whatever the powertrain, the body will work with it.”
Callum’s comments were supported in a more direct fashion by Steven de Ploey, Jaguar global marketing director, who said: “We’ve shot all our bullets on day one in the past. We now have a well balanced model cycle plan for each car, upward, downwards and sideways. With the F-Type, the RS is one of those possibilities.”
