Hennessey Jaguar F-Type R Coupe Packs 623 HP, Tears Up Drag Strip: Video

Follow Nelson

If you’re more accustomed to Hennessey focusing its might on American muscle and sports cars, you’re not alone, but it turns out the boffins from Texas can tune up a Brit beast, too. Here, the 623-hp Hennessey HPE600 Jaguar F-Type Coupe R rips up the dyno and the drag strip with all the bravado you’d expect of a boosted Camaro.

Hennessy extracts this performance from the F-Type Coupe R, which is rated at 550 hp from the factory, with the aid of a custom tune, supercharger pulley upgrade, air intake system, upgraded intercooling, and more. There’s also 568 lb-ft of torque on tap, aiding the acceleration of the car to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds—a full half second faster than the standard F-Type Coupe R. The quarter-mile flies by in just 11.4 seconds at a trap speed of 126 mph.

Hennessey’s HPE600 upgrade package is available for all 2014-2015 F-Type Coupe models equipped with the 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine.
