    Jaguar looking to create a hardcore F-Type Club Sport Coupe with 400 pounds in weight reduction

    The F-Type is taking the place of the XK in the Jaguar lineup until the next generation XK comes about in a few years. That means the F-Type has some big shoes to fill especially on the top end of the performance spectrum. It looks like Jaguar intends to take the F-Type to the next level with a leaner F-Type Club Sport Coupe.

    With roughly 200 kilograms subtracted (how they will manage to take this much weight out is anyone's guess) the F-Type Coupe would get down to the ~3200 pound range. That would put it much closer to something like a 911 GT3.

    This is what F-Type program director Russ Varney had to say, "We have three or four things we are looking at for the next developments of the F-Type and a lightweight, harder version is a long way up that list. If you could get a couple of hundred kilos out of it, that would be a special car. We wonít get any weight savings of significance by looking at any one thing, so it has to be holistic across every part and thatís a lot of engineering."

    If this car would use a tweaked version of the 550 horsepower supercharged V8 or a new motor is unknown. When this car would come if it does is unknown as well. We will have to see what happens but a much lighter hardcore version has a high degree of enthusiast appeal. Let's hope Jaguar does it.
