THOSE of you who were paying attention a few weeks ago may recall us telling you about the new Jaguar F-Type with the lightweight 300bhp four-cylinder petrol engine.
Good news then, because those of you not wishing to drive the utterly gorgeous but slightly impractical F-Type can now have the same efficiency conscious engine bolted to the rest of the Jaguar range.
Well, almost the rest of the range. You can’t get one in the XJ but that would defeat the object of choosing an XJ so that’s ok.
But that’s besides the point so bear with us for a minute while we deal with the technical bit.
The state of the art Ingenium engine – for that is what it is called – was designed from scratch by Jaguar and is built at their £500m Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton.
It may only have four cylinders but this 2.0-litre, 300bhp unit is currently the most powerful version of the Ingenium engine that Jaguar produces. It is fitted with twin-scroll turbos with ceramic bearings to reduce friction, and a high flow compressor wheel to enhance performance.
