623hp Hennessey HPE600 Jaguar F-Type R Released (w/video)

0-60mph in 3.5sec

John Hennessey, of Texas-based Hennessey Performance, is one of few people who emerges from a test session in a 550-hp Jaguar F-Type R Coupe and thinks, “You know what this thing could use? More power.” The result of this somewhat insane realization is an HPE600 tuning upgrade for the Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, endowing the already frenzied feline with even more power and torque.

The standard 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe can rocket from 0-60 mph in 4.0 seconds flat thanks to its sensational 550-hp, supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 engine producing 502 lb-ft of torque. The Hennessey HPE600 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe chops 0.5 seconds off of that time, owing to its wild 623 hp and 568 lb-ft of torque. So how does Hennessey summon the extra grunt to lay down a 11.4-second quarter-mile at 126 mph? Compared to the standard V-8-powered Jag, the HPE600 receives a custom engine computer tuning, a pulley upgrade for the supercharger, and an intercooler upgrade.

Hennessey also released a video of the HPE600 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe testing on the dyno and on the drag strip, which you can watch above. A stock F-Type R is perfectly equipped to do burnouts and drag runs on its own, and it certainly does not need any help with a thrashing exhaust note, but the HPE600 package seems to just turn all of the F-Type’s rowdy characteristics up one more notch. Hennessey is that kid from growing up who will always push right up to, and sometimes over, the border of what’s crazy and dangerous.

HPE600 customers will also get a dash plaque and engine plaque with a unique Hennessey serial number, as well as subtle exterior badging that signifies the Texas treatment. Pricing has not been announced, but for context, the more comprehensive HPE700 upgrade for the 2014-2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray costs $22,500.
