Jaguar to unveil the Bloodhound F-Type R at Coventry MotoFest

Jaguar has announced that the F-Type R AWD Bloodhound SSC RRV will debut at the 2015 Coventry MotoFest in the UK, on May 30. This car is a specially customised F-Type coupe, which will act as the rapid response vehicle  during the Bloodhound SSC’s world land speed record attempt, later this year.

A creation of Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division, the Bloodhound F-Type is painted in unique blue livery to match the colours of the Bloodhound SSC. The Bloodhound F-Type is powered by the same 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine which is found under the bonnet of a standard F-Type R. Producing 550bhp and 680Nm of torque, the engine sends power to all four wheels through an eight-speed ZF gearbox.

Jaguar is the technical support partner for the Bloodhound SSC project, which aims to set a world land speed record by breaching the 1,600kmph barrier. The 1,35,000 horsepower jet-powered car used in this attempt, the Bloodhound SSC, will be piloted by the current land speed record holder, Andy Green.

Besides the Bloodhound F-Type R, Jaguar will also showcase a host of vintage cars at the Coventry MotoFest, including a 1956 D-type Long Nose, a 1966 XJ13, 1974 Group 44 E-type, a 1976 Broadspeed XJ12 Coupé and the 1988 Le Mans-winning XJR-9. The annual event will be held over the weekend of May 29, 30 and 31, at Trinity Street, Coventry in the UK.
