VIDEO: Hennessey Jaguar F-Type R Coupe HPE600 Shows off its Claws[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4v3pq1jnLtY[/youtube]
These days it seems like it’s quicker to list the high end automotive manufacturers Hennessey won’t tune than the ones it will. The latest nameplate to get love from the Texas horsepower whisperers is Jaguar, specifically the already-raucous F-Type R Coupe. Hennessey calls its new tuning package for the mad, mad Jag the HPE600, but the name is super-misleading. You see, the supercharged 5.0L V8 has actually been modified to generate 623 horsepower and 568 lb.-ft of torque, or 73 and 68, respectively, more than stock. And in case that’s not awesome enough, the same upgrades will fit other high-zoot Jaguar R models fitted with the top-shelf V8.
