Remember when Jaguar was building terrible cars? Yeah, those days are gone. The F-Type is loud sex on wheels. And the upcoming Jaguar XE will be a gorgeous 3-Series fighter. And rumor has it the F-Types rambunctious V6 will be under the hood.
A page on Jaguar's global site (which has since been changed) says it'll be powered by a range of engines, including the F-Type's roaring V6. That means we're looking at a range topping V6 XE with a 3.0 liter engine and somewhere between 340 and 380 horsepower.
That isn't M3 levels of power, but it makes the idea of what could be under the hood of an XE-R or an XE-RS. Imagine a 500 horsepower V8 under that hood? Yes. Please.
Hat Tip to Anjan!
