The F-type R is Jaguar’s most powerful production model to date, powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 produces 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. At 3.5 seconds to 60 mph, this Jaguar is a tenth of a second quicker than the Porsche 911s, for example.
After ditching the amazing V8 naturally-aspirated engine, many journalists have wondered if the the new M3 and M4 with a 3.0 liter turbocharged engine will still deliver the ///M experience we all become accustomed to.
The S55 engine produces 425 HP (430 hp in Europe) and 560 Nm (413 lb-ft) of torque. The car weighs under 1,500 kg (3,300 lbs). From 0-100 km/h (0-62), the 2014 BMW M4 runs in 4.1 seconds with DCT while the M3 runs the same distance in 4.3 seconds, with the same transmission. With launch control, bot the M3 and M4 run the same distance in less than 4 seconds.
