Texan tuners Hennessey have just laid their hands on a British sportscar. In their very own style, they have turned a Jaguar F-Type R Coupe into a beast of a sports car. What we have here is the Hennessey HPE600 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe.
This thing used to be powered by a V8 producing 550 hp, but with numerous modifications and quite a lot of elbow grease Hennessey has upped the output from 550 hp to 623 hp. Torque from the massive 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 is rated at 568 lb-ft.
The components that go into making it half a second quicker to 60 mph than the standard F-Type R Coupe include a new supercharger pulley, air intake system, a new intercooler and upgraded plumbing, a custom tune among others. Hennessey have also taken it to the drag strip for quick quarter mile run and the results are astonishing. The tuned HPE600 F-Type R Coupe hit the marker in just 11.4 seconds at 126 mph.
